Leif GW Persson is in my humble opinion the best Swedish crime writer Which is to say the one I most admire and enjoy Funny in both a satirical and whimsical manner Encyclopedic as to the police political nexus Audacious in his ploddingly compelling structuring of an almost 600 page story And starkly poetic just sometimes but enoughI put ‘funny’ at the head of my list Funny is a literary uality I hold in high esteem the so when a story concerns the darker aspects of life and society Persson is hands down the funniest Swedish crime writer I’m tempted to write ‘the only funny Swedish crime writer’Free falling as if in a dream is the third in a massive trilogy constellated around the assassination of Olaf Palme in 1986 an “unsolved” crime that rivals the Kennedy assassination for cultural obsession and which apparently has amassed man hours and paper work In the summer of 2007 high ranking cop Lars Martin Johanssen is nearing the end of a successful career The time frame coincides with the 20 year statute of limitations on any official investigation into the Palme killing Johanssen does not accept the police establishment sanctioned Christer Pettersson theory; he cannot deal with the thought that within a few months the real killer might be beyond legal touch So he gathers three top investigators and sends them back into the huge mass of collected information and theory for one try at bringing a satisfactory resolutionThe first part of the story focuses on debunking the accepted theory which says that a small time criminal shot Palme and his wife in the street on a brazen impulse and fled in a certain direction This is taken from reality Christer Pettersson was eventually picked up tried and convicted then freed on appeal He died from head injuries after a bad fall after reporting he was being harassed by the police after he had apparently contacted Palme's son saying he had something he wanted to say But the meeting never occurred Which makes a new investigation difficultAnd it’s not just Petterson Many of the witnesses and possible players in the assassination are dead twenty years after the fact Much of the challenge in this book is following the collecting and collating of miniscule scarps of information that creates the reasoning that eventually leaves the Pettersson theory behind and heads into much sinister territoryAs the way toward a better solution slowly opens Persson brings in Evert Backstrom another veteran police officer and a mainstay in Persson’s fictional oeuvre Backstrom also figures in the first two books of this trilogy And there are two other novels featuring Backstrom which I have not read This is a discredited cop and an awful man – and a very funny character both stubbornly stupid and cunningly smart He is comic relief and also pointed satire viz blinkered police work Backstrom conducts his own parallel investigation and comes close to the same results as the Johanssen teamThere are a few characters that are part of the entire trilogy The most important is the forever unnamed ‘special advisor’ – the obese gourmand and erudite eminence grise behind the elected powers running Swedish democracy Lars Martin Johanssen an imposing willful man in his own right is reduced in his presence – simultaneously fascinated and worried by ‘Sweden’s own Cardinal Richelieu’ The 3 cops working on the case for Johanssen are fully drawn and distinctly interesting Anna Holt Lisa Mattei Jan LewanOf course I suggest reading Between Summer’s Longing and Winter’s Cold and Another Time Another Life before you tackle Free falling as if in a dream That’s about a thousand pages You’ll learn lots – about contemporary Sweden sure; even about paranoid left vs right political tensions in capitalist culture The 2nd book builds links to the Kennedy killing Caveat Do not approach these books as ‘thrillers’ – think of them as sprawling ‘comedies of error’ dressed in police mystery clothesIf the first two books in the trilogy conclude with frustrating loose ends this book wraps it all up in a fairly satisfactory way Never totally satisfactory – that is what makes it ‘social realism’ But great fiction nonetheless 5 stars You have to read carefully and patiently But very much worth the effort

Augusti och måttet som i PDF #204 är rågat för Lars Martin Johansson chef för rikskriminalen Han tänker klara upp Palme mordet Tidpunkten för preskription ligger inte alltför långt bort och hans egen pensionering kryper närmare Vad vore bättre än att kröna karriären med en lösning av detta fa. This is the third and final book in the legendary Fall Of The Welfare State trilogy written by the Swedish top criminologist and crime fiction writer Leif GW Persson I should mention that it is not by any means necessary to have read the first two books Between Summer's Longing and Winter's End Another Time Another Life in order to understand what is going on as far as the plot is concerned but readers who did will have a thorough picture of the many characters in the novelThe main protagonist is once again Lars Martin Johansson who is now close to retirement and attempts to reopen a case that besets the Swedes for than three decades and of course that is the murder of the Prime Minister of Sweden Olof Palme on Friday 28 February 1986 The assassination took place on the central Stockholm street Sveavägen where a still unknown perpetrator shot Palme while he was walking home along with his wife Lisbet returning from a cinema night out totally unattended without any police protection or bodyguards The police got in the crime scene almost ten minutes after the attack and what seemed at first to be an easy arrest in a matter of hours became one of the most discussed riddles in the European political sceneJohansson assembles a small but effective team of honest and dedicated police officers who who are charged with the task of re examining the vast amount of evidence collected throughout decades of police work in order to detect any possible mistakes or things that were overlooked by the officers who investigated the case in the past This is a work of fiction but most of the facts surrounding the murder are real and in some parts it feels like watching a documentary which narrates the cold hard evidence of this tragic assassination Persson is an experienced author and succeeds in balancing a fictitious plotline with the sheer reality As one may expect there are various theories about who indeed killed Olof Palme and in the than 700 pages of Falling Freely As If In A Dream we learn a lot of things about for examplethe original prime suspect Christer Pettersson and the whole solitary madman argument or the so called police track thus the assumption that the Palme assassination was organized and executed by the people who were high on the Swedish police hierarchy Persson offers some explanations created by his vivid writer's imagination that seems plausible to the reader and makes for an exciting apart from educating readReaders who are familiar with Leif GW Persson body of work will be delighted by the fact that one of the main characters in this book is the mercurial and many times outrageous Evert Bäckström who as always adds a comical touch to the dark and complicated story This is the absolute must read for everyone who claims to be a true fan of Scandinavian crime fiction and it will certainly also appeal to those who take an interest in the European political historyPS If you are interested in a true crime book about Olof Palme's assassination I recommend Blood in the Snow by Jan Bondeson which offers an excellent account of the event and its conseuences The cinema fans will want to check out Sista Kontraktet The Last Contract directed by Kjell Sundvall and starring Mikael Persbrandt a fictional story based on the actual event of the murder of the Swedish Prime Minister

SUMMARY Faller fritt som i en dröm

Faller fritt som i en drömår växer istället fram sakta men säkert Men om spåret är det rätta fritt som i Kindle #213 går sanningen att offentliggöraFaller fritt som i en dröm är den avslutande delen i trilogin som inleddes med de enorma framgångarna Mellan sommarens längtan och vinterns köld och En annan tid ett annat l. This is a book that to do justice to it really needs to be read in large chunks not small bites I really loved this book with it's plausible plot line but as another reviewer has stated there are a lot of characters to keep track of I found myself a bit restricted for time and attempted to read a bit each day which necessitated rereading small passages to fill in what I had missed or forgotten Although this method got me through the book I found the best understanding and enjoyment was gained near the end when I just made an effort to read until I had finished it The book is the third in the Palme series and gives a good idea on how things could have happened in an event which has been difficult for the Swedish police to unravel or understand Although a work of fiction it could just as easily have been a narrative of police findings This has gone to my list of series to re read in it's entirety Try it you will like it
