Before I Go to Sleep meets Law and Order in an epic, thrilling new crime story from Anders de la Motte, author of the internationally sensational Game Trilogy—the prodigiously talented Swedish novelist returns with an ambitious and hugely entertaining tale reminiscent of Memento, Breaking Bad and LA Confidential
David Sarac wakes up behind the wheel of a car after suffering a momentary stress-induced stroke. He crashes violently inside a tunnel, and awakens to find his whole world changed. David works in intelligence for the Stockholm police, recruiting and handling secret informants who help the police in the battle against organized crime. And David is very good at what he does: manipulation, bribes and threats—anything goes, as long as he delivers. Other law-enforcement agents look on with envy from the sidelines, sharing whispers and rumours about the top-secret, high level informant named Janus who is the key to David's success.
But after the accident, David remembers nothing about the past two years. Not even Janus, the man everyone wants to find—from Atif Kassab, a former hit man who’s just returned to Sweden to live the straight life, to Jesper Stenberg, a politically ambitious attorney with a fatally compromising personal secret, to Natalie, a medical student-turned-conwoman. David knows he has to re-establish contact with Janus in order to protect himself and his network of secret informants. Luckily, he is surrounded by friends and colleagues who are more than happy to help him remember. Or maybe forget?
Anders de la Motte brings his signature contemporary energy to a kaleidoscopic modern noir story that braids together the criminal underworld, law enforcement and high-level politics—and shows us how deeply and irreversibly those worlds are intertwined, and that anyone can be corrupted—for a price.
