Jussi Adler-Olsen: Takeover


Wealthy, cynical businessman Peter de Boer is head of a firm in Holland that specialises in bringing down major corporations. He hires the exotic Nicky Landsaat as a marketing trainee with his company and soon he profits from her ambitions.

The trouble starts when the Iraqi intelligence service wants him to bring down a big Western corporation. Initially he refuses, but he relents after a number of threats against him to have his shady past revealed.

Suddenly, Peter de Boer and Nicky Landsaat find themselves at the centre of a terribly dangerous, international conspiracy in which money, international politics, crime and terrorism form a practically inextricable tangle.
