ABOUT THE SERIES
Max Anger is an analyst with the Swedish thinktank Vektor.
He is a very intelligent and inciteful man; he would not have been hired by Vektor if he had not been. He is also extremely experienced from his many years serving in that country's special forces.
Prior to being asked to work for Vektor, he had been "an attack diver, one of the Swedish Navy's elite Coastal Rangers". They are an elite segment of the Navy's Amphibious section. According to special-ops.org, "their main role would be to retake islands and parts of the Swedish coast from the enemy. The Coastal Rangers, in Sweden known as Kustjagarna, undergo a rigorous training and selection process, and they are one of the most highly trained units in the Swedish Armed Forces". Their primary tasks are "to gather intelligence, conduct raids, and commit sabotage".
As part of his extensive training, Anger was schooled in Russian as that nation has been perceived as the biggest threat to Sweden's future for many decades. Beyond that, he had made himself quite knowledgeable about the aims of the current Russian government and, naturally, its capabilities concerning incursion.
Over time, "when [Anger] had gotten fed up with the ongoing dismantling of the Swedish armed forces", he was offered a job at Vektor by its founder, Sarah Hansen, a friend of many years. Deciding "it was time to put the soldier's life behind him", he accepted. He would not have predicted that he would have to call upon those skills in the future.
Anger stands 6'3" tall and weighs 210 lbs.

Ask No Mercy
Written by Martin Osterdahl, Peter Sean Woltemade (translator)
"Max Anger is a man on the edge. The former fighter in an elite band of special-ops soldiers in Sweden, Anger is haunted by battle scars, a childhood spent in the Stockholm archipelago, and his own mysterious family past. Now behind a desk at Vektor, a think tank conducting research on Russia, he’s met his match—and fallen in love—with fierce fellow operative Pashie Kovalenko. Like all of Vektor, she’s set her sights on the tenuous future of her country. When Pashie goes missing in Saint Petersburg, Anger rushes headlong into a volatile Russia, where a new president is about to be elected in the midst of a technological revolution. At the movement’s heart is a start-up Pashie had been investigating, one surrounded by rumors of organized crime and corruption. But the truth is more shocking than Anger could have ever expected."
Ten Swedes Must Die
Written by Peter Sean Woltemade (translator), Martin Osterdahl
"Former special-ops soldier and now an analyst for the think tank Vektor, Max Anger would kill to move on from the scars of his past—if only for the sake of Pashie, his girlfriend and fellow operative, who wants out of the battle zone. For them, a normal life is just one more dangerous uncertainty. Especially now that evil is hitting closer to home. Sofia Karlsson of the Swedish police wants Max’s help in a high-profile and high-stakes murder investigation: the hunt for a serial killer stalking the streets of Stockholm, who’s eliminating his victims in gruesome and tantalizingly clever ways. When Max discovers his connection to two of the crime scenes, his investigation uncovers what could be the most shameful episode in Sweden’s history. The deeper he gets, the harder it becomes to distance himself from the dark sins of the past—and to secure a future with the woman he loves."
