Something is rotten in the state of Denmark

Charlotte Sachs Bostrup's compelling THE CARTEL tells the story of the ambitious Lars Halbo who has recently taken over his father's electrician business. Times are changing and Lars is not prepared for the mafia-like conditions in which new deals are made. When he decides to undersell his competitors on a large building project, he discovers that the major players operate with their own kinds of deals and their own sense of fair play. Soon, he has a tightly organised cartel after himself, his business and his family.
