Publisher's Summary

Bernt Lund harbors a sickness. He is a monster, an unrepentant child molester and serial killer. In the mind of society, in the minds of his nine-year-old victims' parents, and in the minds of his fellow inmates, he is a waking nightmare. And now he has escaped from custody - the worst scenario imaginable for Aspsås Prison's Department for Sexual Crimes.

Detective Superintendent Ewert Grens is about to encounter the most profoundly appalling case in his career and perhaps in Stockholm's history. During the course of one long, hot summer, Sweden will face an explosive series of events that spread across the country like wildfire, events that call into question the very nature of humanity, duty, forgiveness, and self-defense. And justice.

Pen 33 is an unflinching exploration of what people - both criminals and victims - are capable of when they relinquish self-control.

Violence and pedophilia - no thanks

In this current world full of hate, this novel used pedophilia and violence as a foundation to build this story. The story got bogged down in the warped minds of pedophiles, violent criminals and the hatred bred in small communities. To make things worse, the narrator would sometimes scream the conversations of the characters making this most irritating. Really, not a good listen. This was the second book I've heard from these authors and even though I enjoyed the first, will probably never go back.

Not what I expected all the,way
through this book. We start with a very good narrator who lulls us into expecting nothing too dramatic from the author and then BOOM off we go! I quit trying to guess what was coming
and enjoyed this fascinating story.
