Cell 8

Cell 8 by Roslund & Hellstrom, Quercus, $27.99

You wonder where a novel is going when chapter one has the main character locked up alone on death row.

John Meyer Frey was just seventeen years old when he was sentenced to die for the murder of his girlfriend.

He faces a very short future in a small cell in a forgotten corner of Ohio. Six years later, singer John Schwartz is arrested after assaulting a passenger on a ferry between Finland and Sweden.

Slowly links begin to emerge between the two cases. Police in Stockholm and investigators in the US uncover an incredible plot, which will put the justice system in both countries to the test.

Sweden is to crime novels what France is to cuisine and Germany is to beer, and the thrillers of Roslund & Hellstrom are among its best.

Cell 8 starts slowly, but spirals into suspense so gripping I was reading it at red lights and hoping for a traffic jam.
