When Sophie Brinkmann—nurse, widow, single mother—meets Hector Guzman, her life is uneventful. She likes his quiet charm and easy smile; she likes the way he welcomes her into his family. She quickly learns, though, that his smooth facade masks something much more sinister.

Guzman is the head of a powerful international crime ring with a reach into drugs and weapons that extends from Europe to South America. His interests are under siege by a ruthless German syndicate who will stop at nothing to stake their claim. But the Guzmans are fighters and will go to war to protect what’s rightfully theirs. The conflict quickly escalates to become a deadly turf war between the rival organizations, including an itinerant arms dealer, a deeply disturbed detective, a vicious hit man, and a wily police chief. Sophie, too, is unwittingly caught in the middle. She must summon everything within her to navigate this intricate web of moral ambiguity, deadly obsession, and craven gamesmanship.

The Andalucian Friend is a powerhouse of a novel—turbo-charged, action-packed, highly sophisticated, and epic in scope—and announces Alexander Söderberg as the most exciting new voice in thrillers.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Imagine The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo meets The Sopranos, then crank up the intrigue and rip off the knob. Alexander Söderberg has penned an awesome thriller you won’t want to miss.”

    Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Black List

  • “Söderberg has created an entertaining, engaging, and wonderfully bloody-minded world. He’s a great storyteller. It’s that simple.”

    Scott Smith, New York Times bestselling author of The Ruins

  • “The international cast is packed with compelling bad guys, the plot is intricate and urgent, and the dialogue is tense and true and sometimes even funny. A joy-ride of a read.”

    Chris Pavone, New York Times bestselling author of The Expats

  • “[Söderberg] writes with feeling about the crushing psychological stress felt by both cops and criminals.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “[A] tense, accomplished debut…Swift, well-written, and often grisly.”

    Wall Street Journal

  • “Takes up Stieg Larsson’s mantle in icy, brutal style…This adrenalized debut leads you into a European drug ring and introduces an unlikely heroine who’s caught in the crossfire.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “Excellent…[a] jam-packed plot.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “A multi-stranded plot that holds together as exquisitely as finely wound silk…As with the Larsson trilogy, it’s the woman at the center who sparks the engine. By novel’s end, Sophie has realized that ‘she was bigger than she had dared to see.’ We see it, too, and are ready to follow her anywhere.”

  • “Söderberg is masterful.”

    Kirkus Reviews
