Roslund and Hellström: A Scandi Crime Omnibus 1

Roslund and Hellström: A Scandi Crime Omnibus 1

THE FIRST THREE BOOKS IN THE MILLION-SELLING DCI EWERT GRENS SERIES, WINNER OF THE GLASS KEY 2005 FOR BEST SCANDINAVIAN CRIME NOVEL OF THE YEAR, AND AS HARD-HITTING A CRIME SERIES AS YOU WILL EVER READ

PEN 33

Bernt Lund harbours a sickness.

He is a monster: in the mind of society, in the mind of his nine-year-old victims’ parents, and in the mind of his fellow inmates.

Lennart Oscarsson has a situation.

The worst scenario imaginable for Aspsås prison’s Department for Sexual Crimes.

These two men’s actions are about to hand DCI Ewert Grens the most profoundly sickening and impossibly sensitive case of his career, and in Stockholm’s history.

Pen 33 is both an unforgiving collision between a time-hardened policeman and a truly heinous crime, and an unflinching exploration of what people – whether criminals or victims – are capable of when they choose to relinquish self-control.

BOX 21

Lydia Grajauskas will never forget the face.

The face of the trafficker who brought her to Stockholm: the man responsible for three unrelenting years of forced prostitution and slavery.

DCI Ewert Grens will never forget the name.

The name of the prisoner the day his life was destroyed: the man responsible for twenty-five years of torturous heartache.

Sweden will never forget their revenge . . .

Box 21 is a steely, airtight thriller containing both the harshest aspects of degradation and retaliation, and the toughest questions surrounding the morality of violent and obsessive reprisal.
