at this point, the whole hijacking thing seems like some kind of big, time-wasting stall-job or side-game, to hide another target, a totally different endgame. I dunno; it's weird. but it's also very compelling. I guess Fredrika and Alex are going to be the ones to figure something out. they, at least, are the ones disturbed by how pat and obvious it all seems (I agree). anyway...a unique entry in the series.
