Three Years / Sovsågott

The two girls were only four years old when they went missing on the same day. Now, they rest forever in the same graveyard.

Except neither the girl beneath the white wooden cross, nor the girl named Linnea, are in their coffins.

To understand how the two girls are connected, criminal detective Ewert Grens and infiltrator Piet Hoffman have to enter into the darkest of worlds and fight their toughest, dirtiest and most dangerous battle yet.

After Three Seconds, Three Minutes, Three Hours and Three Days (Jamåhonleva)

Now the difference between life and deaths is three years



"[Roslund] is a brilliantly talented crime writer that has succeeded once again.”
Dagens Nyheter (Sweden)
"Pulse-raiser about nightmare case ... Once again Roslund manages to craft a page turner that raises your pulse with every page ... Grens’ own journey is nicely intertwined with the plot ... Clever intrigue and twists. For those who seek thrills with a glance at hell."
Tara (Sweden)
"An extremely nerve-racking page-turner ... [Anders Roslund] manages to walk the fine line between writing a text where the primary purpose is, and so to speak has to be, a thrilling page-turner, and showing insight and deep respect for the complexities and bottomless tragedies in the hell these affected children are living in ... Roslund succeeds with this difficult balancing act. Here, there are many pitfalls that are skillfully avoided. The novel as a crime narrative is extremely nerve-racking. The thrill-generating devices are continuously staged, and at just the right moments. The fight against the clock is one of the most used among these devices, diligently employed in the previous novels about Grens and Hoffman, but once again it works brilliantly. Above all there is something about the language and character portrayals, something that feels stripped down and vulnerable, that makes this new novel completely unputdownable.”
Svenska Dagbladet (Sweden)
"It's both better and worse than ever before, an utterly fantastic text that immerses us in the darkest of worlds ... This is both a poignant and an essential read! ... After just a half sentence of introduction, I'm already familiar with the new character. Only a wicked skilled author can achieve that, this is the way of Anders Roslund, sometimes you have to pause in pure awe, much in the same way you will at times be compelled to stop before a particularly captivating piece of art in an art museum ... Dramatic, thrilling, and very disturbing ... Yet another masterpiece by this brilliant star! It feels as if [Roslund] is more secure in his narration than ever before; sometimes the prose manages to be breathtakingly seductive and pulse triggering at the same time.”
Kapprakt (Sweden)
"Anders Roslund has created a most thrilling tale.”
Ölandsbladet (Sweden)
"Roslund is an excellent author, very well versed in police activities and brutal criminality ... He is good att bringing his characters to life ... A riveting and well-written thriller about a difficult subject matter.”
BTJ (Sweden)
"Anders Roslund's Sovsågott kept me awake half the night. Incredibly intriguing."
Expressen, Mats Olsson (Sweden)
"Sovsågott / Three Years / Sweet Dreams is unrelentingly thrilling ... The portrayal of Ewert Grens digs deeper than ever before and mercilessly demonstrates what loneliness, endless grief, and a stubborn denial of the passage of time can to do a human. The combination of edge-of-the-seat thrills – and the occasional bit of explosive action – along with strong portrayals of both investigative police, next of kin and Grens and Hoffman, makes this a piece of crime poetry of the very darkest shades.”
Skånska Dagbladet (Sweden)
