Three Seconds by Anders Roslund and Börge Hellström

Piet Hoffmann is the best undercover operative in the Swedish police force, but only one other man is even aware of his existence.  After a drug deal he is involved in goes badly wrong, he must face the hardest mission of his life – infiltrating Sweden’s most infamous maximum-security prison.

Detective Inspector Ewert Grens is charged with investigating the drug-related killing.  Unaware of Hoffmann’s real identity, he believes himself to be on the trail of a dangerous psychopath.  But he cannot escape the feeling that vital information about the case has been withheld or manipulated.

Hoffmann has his insurance: wiretap recordings that implicate some of Sweden’s most prominent politicians in a corrupt conspiracy.  But in Ewert Grens they might just have found the perfect weapon to eliminate him.

Intelligent, gripping, brutal, Three Seconds is the new thriller from Roslund and Hellström,
the heirs apparent to Stieg Larsson & Henning Mankell as the masters of Scandinavian noir.

Peer & Press Reviews

The action is non-stop and the tension unlimited.

The Times

Three seconds is just about how long it feels it takes to read Three Seconds…  Terrific.

Time Out

Gripping and intelligent…  Destined for the big screen.
