Awesome book. I have faith in Scandinavia again. I started with book 2 in the "series", but that doesn't really matter, and I will definitely be reading the other books as well. This one contains some of my favorite ingredients in literature: unapologetic, intelligent and morally dubious protagonists, consistent use of a certain style of language (I don't care what style people use to write, and in this case it's what I would refer to as "raw language", as long as it isn't boring or feels faked), humor and weird stuff in general. You pretty much know if you're going to like this book from page one. The cucumber comment (on page 1) kind of gives you a hint or two regarding the general feel of it.
