AFTONBLADET REVIEWS THE MAESTRO OF ST PETERSBURG (DIRIGENTEN FRÅN ST PETERSBURG)

When the Soviet Union collapsed the country’s assets were sold to a select clique of wily Russians who became incredibly wealthy in the process. The predatory economy that grew out of this included everything from corruption, criminality, kidnappings and murders. One person who has seen the negatives is Paul Leander-Engström and it is his experiences that are the basis for a bloody, breakneck story about financial sharks, oligarchs, dictatorial politicians and Swedish businessmen.
