In this dark and gripping novel from number-one best-selling Swedish writing duo Roslund and Hellström, Piet Hoffman is the Swedish police's most valuable secret operative. His cover is that of a lieutenant inside the ruthless Polish mafia, trying to take over amphetamine distribution within Sweden's prison system. With this, his most dangerous assignment, success will mean a new identity and the freedom to start a new life with his wife and young sons.

When a botched drug deal involving Hoffman results in the cold-blooded killing of a police informant, the investigation, assigned to the brilliant but haunted Detective Inspector Ewert Grens, leads to a string of unsolved cases in which key evidence has been withheld under mysterious circumstances. As Grens's investigation takes him closer to the truth, government lies are exposed and Hoffman is trapped in prison, wanted dead by both the police and the mafia. He has only one chance to make it out alive and start a new life. One chance and Three Seconds.

An audiobook with extraordinary insights and totally unexpected plots twists, Three Seconds is an intensely suspenseful thriller in which people in all positions of society are put to the test. Three Seconds was a number-one best-seller in Sweden and the winner of the Swedish Academy of Crime Writers' 2009 award for Best Swedish Crime Novel of the Year.

    " This is a good read that moves along pretty quickly and has a really interesting resolution. It won the best Swedish crime novel award and I appreciate that. However, I'm finding that all the hubbub around Swedish novels (since the "Girl" trilogy became so famous) is beginning to make them all read similarly. I almost felt as if some of these characters had been in other Swedish crime novels interchangeably. That said, it was interesting and the main character is well crafted. Piet Hoffman is a secret operative who must make the ultimate choice risking his life to satisfy his handlers. I recommend the read. "

    " The subject matter is highly interesting, captivating read in the style of short, get to the point plots of much modern crime writing. Vey violent hostage situations at times. Makes me wonder how the "system" actually works and how the real-life decision making process in fact takes place, and what is in it for these people, anew. "

    " Powerful!! Gritty and at times dark, this was a page turner I couldn't put down no matter how sleepy I was. So many twists and turns. Just when you thought you knew what was going to happen, the story takes a sudden turn you never saw coming. Lot of depth to this book! "

    " Outstanding Swedish crime novel, fans of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" series should particularly enjoy it. Engrossing look at the interwoven worlds of crime, law enforcement, and government bureaucracy. Well-developed characters that are believable and interesting, and the plot becomes increasingly gripping. Highly recommended. Another bargain from the shelves at Dollar Tree! "
