Two Soldiers by Anders Roslund, Borge Hellstrom
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The Swedish juvenile gangland scene vividly portrayed in a tough, gritty tale of senseless violence which is both alarming and frightening. The detective’s roots are dangerously close to a powerful gang leader, one Leon. What is so terrifying is that the lad is only 18, his ‘blood brother’ the same and they use young boys to do their drug running, dirty dealings and the like. It is harrowing, sinister stuff.

If you like Anders Roslund, Borge Hellstrom you might also like to read books by Henning Mankell, Stieg Larsson and Jo Nesbo.
