August 2012 Book of the Month.

A gripping and thought-provoking follow-up to the sensational Three Seconds. A convicted murderer dies awaiting execution on Ohio's death row. Six years later, the same man walks into a Stockholm police station. He's defeated death and Detective Superintendent Ewert Grens must discover how. This fast-paced, part murder mystery, part polemic on the death penalty has a mesmerising and ingenious plot and is highly recommended.
