Jorma Hedlund had already finished with his life as a criminal. But then someone gave him this irresistible tip about robbing a Securicor van. Just one last heist, and then it would be over for good. To begin with, all is well, but then the robbery goes terribly wrong, and soon Jorma is a wanted man. Danny Katz is busy trying to find out what has happened to his former drug dealer Ramón and his girlfriend Jenny. How did Ramón all of a sudden come to possess such a lot of drugs? And Jenny – who is she really? Moving once again in these circles Katz finds himself dangerously close to slipping back into his old drug addiction. Katz’ investigation first has him following a track leading in the direction of Stockholm’s porn industry, but then things take a turn he could never have guessed at. Only one thing is very sure: someone wants to prevent him from finding out the truth.

In the second Danny Katz-thriller Carl-Johan Vallgren brilliantly paints a dark picture of the Stockholm underworld – a world which the reunited old friends Katz, Jorma and Eva are only too familiar with.

This is the second book in the Danny Katz series.

“Brilliantly researched, angry, immensely readable in this fine translation”

The Guardian

“I hardly believe my own eyes, reading Dan Josefsson’s epic, thorough and supremely interesting book about the alleged Swedish serial killer Sture Bergwall, who for a time went under the name Thomas Quick.”

-Karen Syberg, Information (Denmark)

“Not just an indictment of the Thomas Quick scandal, but also a piece of modern cultural history about psychology gone terribly wrong.”

-Lars Linder, Dagens Nyheter
