Another Time, Another Life by Lief GW Persson

Another Time, Another Life by Lief GW Persson

Reviewed by Helmo Preuss

"The book is the latest in the great Swedish crime-fiction tradition that began in the 1960s and builds on the sardonic wit and bleak "Weltanschau (world view)" of the previous generation of writers.

Another Time, Another Life takes place in Sweden some time early in this century, but involves two historical events: the attack on the German embassy in Stockholm, Sweden, on April 24 1975, and the fall of the Berlin Wall and the opening of the Staatssicherheit (Stasi or state security) archives in the German Democratic Republic in 1989."

About the book:

A moment in history triggers a wide spiralling conspiracy spanning nearly twenty years. From the occupation of the West German Embassy in Stockholm by terrorists in 1975, to 1989 and the unsolved murder of a civil servant, then to 1999 when Swedish intelligence investigates the newly instated Minister of Justice who has unexpected links with crimes of the past.
