Do you like political thrillers?
The Swimmer by Joakim Zander is an exciting adventure with lots of twists and turns. The descriptions are vivid and the plot is complex. Once you get caught up in the story, it’s hard to put the book down.
The author’s own life experiences have obviously influenced his storytelling skills. He lives in Sweden where he was born, but graduated from high school in the US and got his Phd in the Netherlands. He’s also lived in Syria and Israel.
The Swimmer is fiction, of course, but it has that feeling that all of this could be possible. It’s an exciting read.
