For me, their book Cell 8 was great & Box 21 was very good.
But this one for me was frustrating to read - somewhat repetitive & over long and just not easy to get through because not clear & concise enough - sometimes dialog that I wasn't sure who was speaking. A good story that I wished was just told simply.
Swedish noir in a gritty world of drug dealers, informants, and convicts. The pacing is masterfully constructed, but a straightforward plot doesn't leave much room for mystery.
A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "This is a suspense-filled thriller originally published in Swedish. It involves undercover police work and the efforts of an investigator named Ewert Grens to unravel a crime while others are trying to cover up official involvements. The climax of the story leads you to the edge of your seat as explosions rock a notorious jail."
Excellent read...the plot is well thought out and written.
Excellent book, with a great main character--Ewart Grens. He is methodical and gets the answer to the mystery in his own way. Well written.
Excellent. Couldn't put it down.
Portions of book about police procedure except content more interesting than Larsson's last 2 books, which related to police procedure and at times quite boring. Gripping story. Characters were better defined than Larsson's characters as well.
It's like Traffic on the Swedish-Polish border, but everything from the weather to the criminals' hearts is a little colder.
Three Seconds was named Sweden's top crime novel of 2009.
Hoping for another Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," New Regency has acquired Three Seconds, the fifth novel in a bestselling Swedish crime novel series by Anders Roslund and Bonge Hellstrom. The author team is intriguing - one's a former journalist, the other an ex-criminal.
