Ready for some new Swedish crime to warm your winter? THREE SECONDS is the latest title from Roslund and Hellstrom, due to release on January 4, 2011. Perfect for the 2010 Scandinavian Reading Challenge, this combines all the elements of action, procedurals, and suspense in one award-winning title.
It's already been released in Europe, and received the Swedish Academy of Crime Writers’ Award (Svenska Deckarakademins pris) 2009 for Best Swedish Crime Novel of the Year. It is now translated into English and ready to hit the US.
You can visit the website for the authors and see their other titles at http://www.roslund-hellstrom.com/. The film rights have already been purchased by 20th Century Fox. I haven't read it yet, but am eager to see a new title for English readers. Will it be dark and gloomy? Probably. Do these guys look cynical? Possibly. Enter and see!
