A well-written, well-translated, fast-paced, realistic thriller. I'm still thinking about it weeks after reading it.
A brave, powerless few attempt to bring to justice the ruthless 0.01%, the plutocratic billionaires of the world who will do anything to grab power and hold on to it. The lethal action starts in Nigeria, but quickly moves across the world, ending finally in London.
Neither Lira Kazan of the title, nor any of the others fighting the corruption of the massively rich, are anywhere near as capable as Stieg Larsson's Lisbeth Salander, so does the denouement taste more like Le Carre's `The Constant Gardener' or Larsson's `Millennium' trilogy?
