Roslund and Hellström: A Scandi Crime Omnibus 2

A BRAND NEW BUNDLE FROM THE WINNERS OF THE 2011 CWA INTERNATIONAL DAGGER. INCLUDING A NEW YORK TIMES TOP 5 BESTSELLER – SCANDINAVIAN CRIME DOES NOT GET MORE EXPLOSIVE.

THREE SECONDS


ONE MURDER.

Piet Hoffmann is the Swedish police force’s best undercover operative. Not even his family know of his double identity. Yet when a drug deal with the Polish mafia goes fatally wrong, his secret life begins to crumble around him.

TWO MEN.

Detective Inspector Ewert Grens is charged with investigating the drug-related killing. Unaware of Hoffmann’s true identity, he believes himself to be on the trail of a dangerous psychopath.

THREE SECONDS.

Hoffmann must desperately maintain his cover; else he is a dead man walking. But, in the doggedly-perceptive Ewert Grens, he has just made the most relentless of enemies.

THREE MINUTES

INFILTRATOR

One-time Swedish government agent Piet Hoffmann is on the run from the life prison sentence he escaped: living under a false identity with his family in Calí, Colombia.

INFORMANT

When Hoffmann is offered employment by a Colombian drug mafia, and is simultaneously approached by the US DEA to infiltrate the same cartel, he says yes to both.

IN TOO DEEP

However, when America settles on an enemy for their next War on Terror, Colombia, the US government and the cartel are faced with the same problem. Piet Hoffmann.

Hoffmann is marked. Yet help will come from unlikely quarters: DCI Ewert Grens – the enemy who Hoffmann once tricked – will now become the only ally he can trust.

——————-

THREE HOURS

Stockholm, Sweden. Seventy-three refugees have been found dead, suffocated in a container at Varta harbour.

Niamey, Niger. Ewert Grens arrives in a city he’s never heard of, in search of a man he never thought he would see again.

Piet Hoffmann has again got himself in too deep, infiltrating a West African trafficking ring. He thinks he has two weeks to extricate himself, but will learn that his life, and that of countless defenceless people, now hangs on his actions during three desperate hours.

'[In Ewert Grens] the authors have created an eccentric, alienated, socially inept hero worthy of comparison with Swedish mystery master Henning Mankell's Inspector Kurt Wallander' Wall Street Journal
