DCI Ewert Grens returns in an impossibly clever and unbearably tense Scandinavian crime thriller.
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. He's played the unplayable system. And now Detective Superintendent Ewert Grens must discover how.
