“An interesting concept developed into an exciting read” (Kirkus Reviews)—the final novel in a groundbreaking international thriller trilogy about a deadly game that blurs the line between reality and fiction.
Henrik “HP” Pettersson could never have imagined he’d become entwined in a chaotic and dangerous game of life and death when he picked up a lost cell phone on a commuter train. He thought he’d escaped.
Now, his paranoia quickly grows to mania, as he is convinced that the Game Master and past characters are following him and that the police are watching him. HP decides he must finish one last assignment and expose the Game Master’s secrets once and for all—no matter the cost.
What he uncovers is a potential link between his own father’s past and the Game— blurring the boundary between the virtual and reality more than ever.
The shocking finale to the fast-paced trilogy that began with Game and Buzz, Bubble will leave you breathless as you witness the final showdown between HP and the Game Master.
Henrik "HP" Pettersson's a gamer in every sense of the word which might explain why, instead of kicking back and savoring his victory over the bad guys in Buzz, Swedish author de la Motte's second entry in his crime trilogy, HP must now try to destroy the Internet scheme known as "the Game" once and for all and free both himself and his sister, Rebecca. But that's going to be a Herculean task, even for someone with HP's paranoid genius, because the evil Game Master has so many weapons in his arsenal including Becca herself, who has just been made head of security at the Game-linked IT behemoth PayTag. The setup of several intriguing storylines (including one suggesting that the late Petersson paterfamilias may having been leading a double or triple life) makes for a sluggish start, but this third installment eventually hits bullet-train speed as it hurtles toward a twisty finale, interwoven with a Swedish royal wedding.

I enjoyed the series, but got tired of the anti Amercan sentiment. Made an obviously smart man seem ignorant.
