Jens Lapidus is the author of three of the best selling Swedish novels this past decade: Easy Money, Never Fuck Up and Life Deluxe. His own professional experience as a criminal defence lawyer, at a firm representing some of the most notorious criminals in the country, has given him unusual insights into a world that most people would rather not acknowledge. Critics have tagged him 'a Swedish James Ellroy', a truth-telling author who writes about life on the streets and depicts the underbelly of Swedish society.
