Quercus, €18.30, Hardback
Pete Hoffman is the Swedish police force's best undercover operative. Only one other man is aware of his existence and his mission to expose the criminal and corrupt in all levels of Swedish life.
When a drug deal he is involved in goes badly wrong, he is forced to attempt to infiltrate his country's most infamous maximum security prison. However, the man investigating the drug-related killing is unaware of Hoffman's real identity and thinks he may be on the trail of a psychopath. Gritty, brutal and gripping, Three Seconds is bound to continue the inexorable march up the best-seller lists by talented Scandinavian crime writers.
