    Stålsprånget kindle Ò Paperback StålsprångetThis book was extremely creepy a good balance between post apocalyptic tale and detective novel Because the author has been dead for than 3 decades some of the political topics mentioned are very dated But it is still a well written thriller and the author is a master at building up tension while revealing just enough to keep us hooked
