    Linskey ist der "King of Northern Noir" - spannungsgeladen, tough, erschreckend. Mit rotzfrechen Dialogen, britischem Sarkasmus und rasantem Tempo ist Gangland eine Geschichte voller Atmosphäre über Unmoral, Verkommenheit und Gnadenlosigkeit, geradeheraus und von Anfang bis Ende bedrohlich. Fiese Typen, schräge Deals, mafiöse Strukturen - weiße Westen gibt’s nicht. Da kann man sich nur die Finger schmutzig machen. Aber natürlich nicht beim Lesen!
