Russian Dope

Russian Dope by Steen Lnagstrup

Warning, this book contains explicit violence and language, black and gross humor, and too many Russians.

A blur of non-chronological chapters, this dark gangster tale is set in fairytale Copenhagen, Denmark as the first snow of the winter covers the city streets. It's the late 90s and the Russian mafia is taking over the streets, dealing first class Russian dope. A couple of stupid, Danish, lowlife junkies decide to steal some of that dope. Not really a smart move; but hey, man, it might work, you know.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great readNovember 30, 2014
This review is from: Russian Dope (Kindle Edition)
Have you ever seen the movie Snatch? Where it jumps around to all these different characters and at first, you're confused. But as things come together, you realize what's going on and what it's about? That's this book. I could totally see it as a movie. The characters are well described enough that you get a feel for them, without over doing it. The plot is thick, but not too much you can't follow it. This story was fun, entertaining, exciting and action packed. I think it was well written (with the exception of some editing errors). The editing does leave something to be desired, but it doesn't ruin the story for you. I think if you're into crime, noir type films, you're going to really enjoy this book! Pick it up and give it a try.
