Beskrivelse

We are in 1998, during the three weeks leading up to one of this year's worst terrorist acts, namely the bombing of two U.S. embassies in Nairobi, Kenya and Dar, Tanzania.
 

The Danish former ranger Stig Jansen, is located in the country in civilian affairs and soon he´s unwittingly whirled into what's going to prove to be the precursor to one of the Worlds' largest conspiracies involving the corrupt local government power, the CIA, sinister parts of the German government, Saddam Hussein's regime in Iraq and a Danish colonel in the Defense Intelligence Agency.He's pulled around in the strange circus and his reactions and actions will be crucial for all the people he comes into contact with during his stay.Through his escape from the Kenyan military, who accuses him of terrorism and murder, he is driven, along with the beautiful Scottish Red Cross employee Jane, into the wilderness, where his abilities and skills as former elite soldier, come into their own, and the flight progresses then into a nightmare where the difference between friend and foe is subtle.

The novel is about the former ranger Stig Jansen who go to Kenya in a civil matter but quickly becomes involved in one of the biggest conspiracies the world have seen so far. Stig will soon have to flee into Kenya's jungle where he encounters a few friends and a multitude of enemies. He has no idea who he can trust. All this is happening while Stig has no clue about what is going on around him, and this despair also brands us as readers. This aspect tells something about the author's qualities as a facilitator. We as readers, along with Stig, are pulled around in a circus where for example we meet people from the CIA and the FBI ("to name just a small group of involved") but we are never told the whole truth. The novel has a huge cast of characters and many scene changes which can make the book confusing, and which makes great demands on the reading abilities of the reader. Yet the writer succeeds in gathering all the threads at the end which is a great redemption for us as readers, and that makes the constantly exciting book a great reading experience. It is also mentioned that the author wisely chose to make use of an omniscient narrator who helps us to stay organized throughout the book. The novel is written in a humorous and authentic language with metaphors and symbolism. There are also perspectives for concrete and real events of modern times which makes the story timely, interesting and vivid. The authentic language used, means that you often are forced to think a little deeper yourself to reach a comprehensive understanding of the story's many layers. It can, as previously mentioned mean that the book can be hard to read, but conversely, it is interesting and bold by the author. He do not compromise with credibility in the book and it is further underlined by the huge research work as the book undoubtedly has demanded.
