Cell 8

(2006)
(The third book in the Ewert Grens series)
A novel by

 
 
John Meyer Frey rots on Death Row in Utah for murdering a girl when he was seventeen. His victim's father is desperate for revenge, while his prison guard is torn by feelings of compassion for the young man. Both of them see their hopes thwarted when the killer dies of heart disease before he can be either justly punished or attain redemption.

Across the other side of the Atlantic a cheap crooner by the name of John Schwarz earns his daily crust on a ferry between Finland and Sweden. One night he sees a drunkard harassing several women and loses his temper, beating the man so badly that he ends up in hospital. The incident would normally be dismissed as just another drunken brawl, but Detective Inspector Ewert Grens is made suspicious by certain details of the case and investigates further.

This will initiate the most remarkable criminal investigation of the sullen, acerbic widower's career, which not only shocks him to the core but blows apart the worldwide debate on the death penalty - and the wider conflict between public justice and private revenge. Moving, harrowing, disturbing, Cell 8 is the third crime novel by Roslund and Hellström, combining a hard-hitting plot with a dark, multi-layered narrative and a killer twist.
