Arne Dahl’s novels have sold more than three million copies worldwide. Hunted provides no clue as to why this might be. The main problem is that this story relies far too much on the first novel in the series, Watching You. Constant recaps kneecap the confusing narrative. Then, to cap it all, Islamic State pops up in the final pages. Enough already! The result feels synthetic, second-hand and clunky. Perhaps style is what gets lost in translation.
