Andalucian Friend by Alexander Soderburg
This Swedish first novel by Soderberg is full of action and intrigue. It involves two warring factions of international crime organizations (one German and one Portuguese) and an innocent nurse who falls for one of the king-pins when he is admitted to the hospital with a broken leg. Throw in an old acquaintance of hers from way back who is has become an arms dealer and gets caught up in the middle of the mafia feud. Even though there were many characters to keep track of I did enjoy this book. It was still entertaining despite the ending which seemed like the author was trying to tie everything up but left loose ends in the process.
