Två Soldater
Release date: June 1 2016
Original title: Tre minuter


Han infiltrerade grov organiserad brottslighet hela vägen in i fängelse. Han avslöjades innanför murarna, lämnades att dö. Han behövde tre sekunder för att överleva.

Tre år senare är Piet Hoffmann fortfarande på flykt med sin familj – hans älskade fru Zofia som han inte längre kan ljuga för, och sönerna Hugo och Rasmus.

Långt ifrån Sverige har han nu – på amerikanska polismyndighetens uppdrag – infiltrerat sig djupt in i kokainmaffians hjärta. Han ska, igen, möta kriminalkommissarie Ewert Grens. Men den här gången kämpar de på samma sida. Och skillnaden mellan liv och död är tre minuter.

Piet Hoffmann är tillbaka i en thriller i världsklass som rör sig mellan Sverige, USA och Colombia. Det är en fristående fortsättning på Tre sekunder och Roslund & Hellströms sjunde bok. Tre sekunder vann såväl Bästa svenska kriminalroman som International Dagger Award och hyllades av pressen både i Sverige och internationellt.

Reviews

“Full throttle in action thriller without any weak spots. Roslund & Hellström has grown to become one of the major Scandinavian crime fiction writers. Three Minutes is the sequel to Three Seconds / Bånn gass i actionmettet thriller uten særlige dødpunkter.  Roslund & Hellström har med tiden vokst til å bli blant de store i Skandinavisk kriminallitteratur. Tre Minutter er oppfølgeren til Tre Sekunder.”

-Adresseavisen (Norway)

“Also this seventh cooperation between a former crime reporter and an ex-con, who founded an organization to help criminals with their reintegration into society, is of high quality. Interesting characters, an exciting plot, a great setting and a well-founded, socially critical undertone, but never preachy or patronizing. Top!

-Gazet van Antwerpen (Belgium)

 

“I quickly became stuck in this very well-written crime novel … As always when these authors presenting something you get a good portion of learning …  Roslund & Hellström put their finger on the unspeakable and the unbearably frightening … The book is nearly 600 pages, and I usually complain about that, but this book almost feels too short. Page-turner is too overused, but I have no better … So far one of this year’s best reading experiences.”

-Nisse Scherman Blog (Sweden)

”Really exciting and well written …  Three Minutes is a very readable crime novel about the drug power of both money and people, no matter what kind of soul you are and where on earth you are.”

-Corren (Sweden)

“As is the standard with Roslund & Hellström, it is damnably thrilling as they depict the society and world of today. They have a language that makes the reading flow as if by itself, and you simply have to read the next chapter. And the next …”

-Upsala Nya Tidning (Sweden)

”The nail-biter of the year so far. Roslund & Hellström mop the floor with the majority of their colleagues in what is usually called the Swedish crime fiction wonder.”

-Mariestads-Tidningen (Sweden)

“Outrageously skilled, both in terms of the research done on everything from drug smugglers in Colombia, to how you’d tattoo a dead body.  Add to that an exciting story to the standalone Three Seconds … after just a few chapters you’ll be caught, till the last page, and already longing for the next book. This author duo has a rarely seen momentum in their prose as well as plot, which elevates the novel even further.”

-Kommunalarbetaren (Sweden)

“Exciting about divided loyalties … Three Minutes proves that Roslund & Hellström are in a league of their own-”

-Ölandsbladet (Sweden)

“This is a crisply narrated plot with great excitement, in places quite nasty elements. The depiction of the Latin American country testify to firsthand knowledge and especially the description of the leading mafia boss gives a terrifying impression. The resolution which is based in Sweden also contains surprising elements … Undoubtedly, this is a thriller that keeps very high international standard.

-BTJ (Sweden)

“Three Minutes has been worth the wait. It’s well-written and Roslund & Hellström have put much effort into their research … Whoever gives the novel a go will be caught within three minutes.”

-Nya Kristinehamns-Posten (Sweden)

“Three Minutes is just as thrilling as Three Seconds. And as is always the case with books by Roslund & Hellström, it is so much more than a page-turner of a crime fiction novel … Three Minutes is this summer’s must-read crime fiction novel – or more simply put, it’s an obligatory read.

-Skånska Dagbladet (Sweden)

“New exciting nail-biter by the successful duo … As with all novels by Roslund & Hellström, I read Three Minutes in one sitting. It’s a gripping thriller that at times breathes James Bond. Sure, some events appear fanciful, but they’re cleverly constructed and thought-out. They could very well happen…
-Skaraborgs Allehanda (Sweden)

 

“Anders Roslund and Börge Hellström is an outstanding duo among Swedish crime writers. After the last book Two Soldiers they had a break from each other (during that time Roslund wrote the book Made in Sweden with Stefan Thunberg) but are now back with renewed forces. And what forces then! Three Minutes is a well-researched, well-written, easy read and nail-biting thriller with awesome characters which reach over three continents.
