    PER MORIRE BASTANO TRE SECONDIGuccini cantava, e i Nomadi con lui, che Per fare un uomo ci voglion vent anni, per fare un bimbo un ora d a, per una vita migliaia di ore, per il dolore abbastanza un minuto .Qui, invece, si narra che per morire bastano tre secondi.Il film omonimo in fase di lavorazione post produzione diretto dall italiano Andrea Di Stefano Nella foto il cast principale se Joel Kinnaman azzeccato come Piet Hoffman, gli altri ruoli sono di pi difficile attribuzione Il fascinoso Clive Owen interpreter l anziano sciancato commissario che avrebbe voluto avere una figlia come la sua collaboratrice di polizia sar Rosamund Pike Il tutto stato trasferito e riambientato in US.Piet Hoffman cittadino svedese ma nato a Kaliningrad, nell oblast russo affacciato sul Mar Baltico incastonato tra Polonia e Lituania un exclave, cio un enclave all estero della Grande Russia Faceva parte della Prussia e fino al 1946 si chiamava K nigsberg, citt natale di Immanuel Kant Cos , Piet Hoffman parla pi lingue, senza accento, pu essere scambiato per svedese o polacco o russo, forse anche tedesco.Si parte bene.Piet Hoffman un ex tossicodipendente, ha scontato una pena detentiva di un anno, e in carcere stato agganciato dalla polizia svedese e trasformato in informatore e infiltrato Adesso sposo e padre felice.Joel Kinnaman, protagonista del film nel ruolo di Paula Piet Hoffman.Quando inizia il romanzo, Piet Hoffman all apparenza titolare di una ditta di security in realt , lavora per la polizia svedese all interno della mafia polacca.Di tutto questo, la sua amata famigliola ovviamente all oscuro.Il suo nome in codice Paula e la sua doppia vita di padre marito affettuoso e informatore sempre appesa al filo sottile della segretezza E della menzogna.L organizzazione criminale polacca lo incarica di farsi arrestare per prendere il controllo dello spaccio di droga all interno delle prigioni svedesi, un giro di otto nove milioni di corone al giorno pari a circa ottocentomila euro al d La polizia modifica il suo fascicolo nel Registro Generale, i dati del suo file personale, e lo trasforma in un criminale violento e instabile per renderlo pi credibile come recluso di un carcere di massima sicurezza.Ma E Poi, quando lui Piet Hoffman Joel Kinnaman si confronta col regista Andrea Di Stefano.Impressionante l architettura del racconto, anche perch si sviluppa su un impalcatura di 650 pagine Anders Roslund, giornalista, e B rge Hellstr m, ex criminale morto l anno scorso, hanno lavorato in coppia sfornando sette romanzi che ruotano attorno all ispettore Ewert Grens e ai casi che affronta e risolve , di cui questo il numero cinque, oltre che essere il pi premiato, forse quello pi di successo, che sta per diventare anche un film in post produzione.Qui si parla di spie, informatori e infiltrati Si parla di come la legge per sconfiggere il crimine usi sempre pi criminali, o ex tali, fregandosene abbondantemente della giustizia, e della stessa legge un paradosso che frastorna E spaventa.Clive Owen potrebbe interpretare il poliziotto che controlla l infiltrato, Erik Wilson, a cui immagino sia stata allargata la partecipazione alla vicenda.Due aspetti colpiscono pi di tutto, uno positivo e uno negativo Il primo s impone subito, il secondo emerge pi avanti nel tempo.Mi ha positivamente colpito la cura del dettaglio, la documentazione, la ricerca, l indagine che precede la scrittura si riesce a rendere credibile e verosimile ogni momento, ogni passaggio Si respira verit e realt Da come si taglia la droga anfetamine in questo caso , le percentuali, la confezione alla graduatoria d importanza dei carcerati al posto pi alto gli assassini, seguiti dai grossi trafficanti di droga, poi i rapinatori in fondo alla classifica, e questo si sapeva gi , stupratori e pedofili a come si nascondono tre grammi di anfetamina nel bocciolo di ciascun tulipano di un mazzo da venticinque, che si fanno aprire in un breve passaggio in forno 50 , si riempiono con un preservativo tagliato e annodato che contiene la droga, e si fanno richiudere mettendoli in frigo a 2 dopo 48 ore di temperatura ambiente, si aprono da soli, e sboccia la dose le inchieste di polizia tutto meno che all acqua di rose autopsie, spari, armi smontate, pulite, caricate Eccetera Una delizia per uno come me che ama molto questo genere di particolari anche in un film, anche in una serie TV per esempio, penso subito alla memorabile scena in Vivere e morire a Los Angeles in cui si vede come si manifatturano soldi falsi.Rosamund Pike in uno scatto dal set trasferito da Stoccolma a New York Mi viene da pensare che la sceneggiatura, oltre che cambiare ambientazione, abbia accorpato e trasformato certi ruoli per cui penserei che a Rosamund Pike sia affidata la parte della poliziotta che investiga, pi che quella dell agente scelto Mariana.L aspetto che colpisce negativamente, e che invece in un primo momento sembra una scelta stilistica, sono le ripetizioni Che si potrebbero scambiare per insistenza su passaggi di trama, su singoli momenti della storia e poi invece si capisce essere frutto della scrittura a quattro mani mai pienamente amalgamata da una buona redazione i due autori si sono divisi i capitoli e nessuno ha speso il tempo che serviva per rileggere, rivedere, cancellare le ripetizioni Un aspetto che ripetuto per 650 pagine diventa abbastanza irritante.Il commissario Ewert Grens non simpatico anzi, pi antipatico della media, non suscita alcuna empatia e si parteggia subito per la spia e il suo agente di riferimento.Al colpo di scena finale, costruito con cura meticolosa, si arriva con tempi lunghi, che risultano slabbrati perch la presunta rivelazione intuibile sin da subito, non ci si crede per un istante che Ana de Armas interpreta Sofia, l amatissima moglie di Piet Hoffman Quando aveva iniziato, la mafia era qualcosa che esisteva a migliaia di chilometri di distanza, in Italia meridionale o nelle grandi citt americane Oggi i regolamenti di conti, gli omicidi brutali come quello su cui cominciavano ora a indagare, erano diventati la norma Tutto si era cos insudiciato In ogni commissariato della citt i colleghi stavano a guardare impotenti mentre i diversi settori del crimine organizzato si dividevano i guadagni derivanti dal traffico di droga, armi, esseri umani.Andrea Di Stefano, ha cominciato come attore in Il principe di Homburg di Marco Bellocchio Ma la sua carriera non mai decollata davvero Da qualche anno ha affiancato quella di regista che molto pi promettente perch tra le lingue che parla, i contatti internazionali che ha sempre avuto, e il talento che il suo esordio registico dimostra, con questa seconda prova di regia potrebbe decollare Il primo film di Di Stefano era Escobar interpretato dal premio Oscar Benicio Del Toro 2014.

    This is one of the best crime novels I have read in a long time For me it exceeded the Larsson series everyone loved It is so well written There wasn t a single moment when I felt that even one word was extraneous, except maybe when I was confused with the foreign terms but that had nothing to do with the book itself The book is set in an unfamiliar place for most Americans, since it takes place mostly in Sweden Every character has a unique purpose and is developed specifically in a way to define him her From the ever grieving, cantankerous, curmudgeon Ewert Grens who is as rude an anyone can be, to the infiltrator whose behavior and actions are as smooth and courageous as anyone can be, even as he is forced to break the law to complete his assignment, to the cold and calculating handler who treats the infiltrators as things, not human beings, for the most part, I was constantly forced to look at both sides of the coin in the law enforcement and criminal world I began to seriously question my own ideas of right and wrong I was thrilled by this tale of criminal espionage, kept on the edge of my seat, as the underbelly of the corruption in our society is exposed and made naked The line between criminal and honorable behavior is so blurred that I was constantly wondering and questioning the underpinnings of my own ethical beliefs After awhile, I didn t know whom to root for, law enforcement or the law breaker As I read I questioned the very foundation of all legal systems and the justice system and realized that it was hard to tell in this book, and probably in real life, just what is real and what is fiction even in the real drama of my life Who is guilty, who is innocent Both elements of society cross the lines of honorable activity into the realm of the underworld, to serve their own selfish purposes Even if the end result is meant to be for the good of mankind, I found the behavior outrageous and unacceptable There has to be a better way.This book enraged me, but in a good way It made me think about how I view things as a witness, to some event or other, everyday of my life I realized that the system keeps the system alive at any expense We all see what we want to see, what serves our needs For some, the end justifies the means at all costs and I began to wonder, is the cost ever too great The book succeeds in all ways without gratuitous sex However, it is very violent, but that too, is not gratuitous but absolutely necessary to the development of the plot and the unraveling of the tale I can t recommend it highly enough to readers who enjoy exciting, crime fiction that walks the tightrope or the balance beam between the real world and the world of nightmares You will question your own world once you begin.

    Though it took me a while 50 pages 80 100 to get into the book, once it took hold it didn t let go For the last 300 pages, I couldn t put it down It s a riveting look at detective work, criminal minds, and the enormous risks, both physical and psychological, that both sides take in doing what they do I may have vaguely known that investigators use criminal elements to spur if not enable their efforts But this book, written collaboratively by a former journalist and former criminal, blows us away with the 2 camps mutual dependence, their degree of support for one another, and the callousness that must sometimes rule the game The suspense is sometimes unbearable Once you re in its grip, you care deeply about the central characters, particularly the criminal agent at the story s core My only reservation and the reason I don t give the book five stars is that the names people, places are hard to follow The names are all Scandanavian, unfamiliar, and hard to hold There is, at the story s outset, a list of character names and identities, which helps, but not enough Still, once the initial section is past, this is an 8 star read.

    I won this hot off the torturous translation table Swedish thriller in a goodreads giveaway contest My review is of an uncorrected advance reading copy, so it is possible that changes may be made to the text before it is released in January 2011 Three Seconds is the first novel I ve read by Roslund Hellstrom I don t know what it is about Sweden as a country that makes it inclined to produce crime novels that are so much interesting, insightful and refreshing than the formulaic Koontz and Patterson car chase explosions sex with a hot girl gun fight that is the standard fare of American thrillers, but I do know that Three Seconds does not break with Swedish tradition In all fairness, there actually is an explosion in Three Seconds too, but it s an intelligent explosion, rather than just a testosterone laden male orgasm substitute Even keeping in mind the fact that most Swedish books have been translated out of their original language for English speaking audiences, thereby losing some of the natural ebb and flow of the prose that can never be 100% recaptured by words of a different language, they still manage to blow American crime writing out of the water I found Three Seconds to be an incredibly suspenseful and intelligent thriller with deep, emotionally developed characters I won t talk much about the plot, because there are so many twists even within the first 50 pages that it s hard to talk about the plot at all without revealing spoilers, but I will say that it was perfectly paced fast enough to keep me reading non stop for an entire night, and then slowing down just enough to tease me in the sections where I was dying to know a resolution What I loved most about this book though was how thought provoking and meaningful it managed to be while simultaneously being entertaining and gripping Unlike the last thriller I won in a giveaway, the fun but somewhat shallow The Insider, Three Seconds is chock full of subtle social and political commentary that forces you to think about issues as varied as drug addiction, the morality and boundaries of police work, civilian rights, undemocratic loopholes in constitutional law and the effectiveness of prisons in decreasing crime and rehabilitating criminals all this while thoroughly entertaining the reader I also enjoyed the fact that there was little romance or focus on random love interests in this book I like my steamy casual sex scenes as much as the next happily single woman, but sometimes it s nice to have a break from every single character in a book always having to have a love interest or every detective having hot, young women just fall into bed with them As for the writing, I liked the italicized internal dialogue that was written into the normal dialogue Perhaps some readers might have found the frequent italics a bit jarring, but personally I really enjoyed it I thought it genuinely read like a realistic depiction of the brain s thought processes and how we talk to ourselves inside our head, and reminded me of how easy it is to go off on your own train of thought or have unspoken conversations right in the middle of a real, verbal conversation with someone else The psychology of a wide variety of characters was very well developed I could understand the motivations of and sympathize with characters as different as a grieving, guilt ridden, eccentric and old fashioned detective, a drug mule who risks their own body for a bit of money, a stressed out civilian police informant who just wants a better life for his family and a prison warden who wanted to advance his career without losing every last ounce of integrity For the first 50 or 60 pages, it did seem like there were a few too many characters to keep track of Initially, all the jumping back and forth between different characters, locations, and scenarios was a bit confusing, but once I had sorted out who was who and whether they worked for the bad guys, the good guys, or the kinda bad, corrupt, democracy bypassing bureaucrats, it was quite easy to follow My only other complaint was that it was perhaps a bit on the lengthy side If half of the descriptions of getting and drinking a cup of coffee could have been cut out, along with the constant mapquesting, that alone could easily have cut it down by 30 pages What do I mean by mapquesting Well, the authors had a weird habit of constantly naming every single street that the characters walked or drove down, the turns they took, and sometimes even describing lane changes, which after a while started to read a bit like a set of mapquest directions on every few pages Maybe if I lived in Stockholm and actually knew some of the steets then I wouldn t have noticed it as much, but for any readers who lives outside of Stockholm the street names are pretty meaningless and as such, become tiresome Aside from that, it was a highly enjoyable, difficult to put down crime novel and I hope to read of Roslund and Hellstrom s work.

    Scandinavian crime fiction has been hot for many years now, but in the wake of the unexpected success of the Steig Larsson books, it appears to be even ubiquitous This latest example the third in a series, following The Beast and Box 21 takes a very straightforward and familiar plot about an undercover operative working for the Swedish police, and manages to milk it for than 400 pages of not particularly engaging prose The premise is that former drug addict and ex con Piet Hoffman was recruited by the cops while still in jail to become an informant He has since risen to a fairly prominent position with a Polish gang, and is on the brink of being able to provide information to his handler that will bring the gang entire drug smuggling operation down Of course, as is the case in many such stories, something goes wrong and Hoffman s role of informer is put at risk along with his life.The ostensible hero of the story and the series is dour, misanthropic, middle aged Detective Inspector Grens, who in the course of investigating a murder, comes into contact with Hoffman and smells something fishy So, you have one set of police officials trying to cover for Hoffman and keep him off the radar, and D.I Grens and his team chasing down Hoffman from the other side Now don t get me wrong, I love police procedurals, but this one is very slow going for the first 2 3 or so of the book There s a lot of fat in the writing, and it often feels very clumsy For example, the authors have this really annoying technique that emerges in pivotal scenes, where a line of dialogue is followed with a line describing what the speaker is thinking and feeling as they say it This is incredibly awkward, and sometimes it s not even clear who is thinking what This is made even complicated by the occasional use of italics to set off such interior thoughts.But if you stick with it long enough, the story suddenly lights up in a flurry of well conceived activity in the final third I just finished re reading the classic thriller The Day of the Jackal, and aspects of Hoffman s story are very reminiscent of the methodical planning undertaken by the assassin that book and film Unfortunately, like that book, the characters never really come alive off the page, and mainly exist to serve the plotting It s possible that some on the police side would feel fleshed out if I d read the first two books in the series The overall story is really not that fresh or interesting, but the mechanics of how certain things are done may be enough for some readers to emerge satisfied I read a lot of international crime fiction, and this one felt pretty marginal to me.Note One aspect that s somewhat interesting is the not so subtle implication that the Swedish police are importing techniques like the heavy cultivation and use of informers from America that end up taking them into some very morally dubious territory, such as turning a blind eye to crimes committed by valuable informants.

    PROTAGONIST DI Ewert Grens infiltrator Piet HoffmanSETTING SwedenSERIES 5 of 5 3rd book translated into EnglishRATING 4.75One of the tools that police departments often use is to develop a network of informants, people on the street who have access to the kind of information that they would be hard pressed to uncover In some cases, the informant goes even further, with the subject actually infiltrating an organization that is of interest to the authorities Such is the role of Piet Hoffman who over the course of many years has infiltrated the Polish Mafia in Sweden His police contact, Erik Wilson, goes to extreme lengths to protect Hoffman Recently, Hoffman has established himself with the upper echelons of the Poles and is on the verge of providing the police with an unparalleled opportunity to bring down their drug distribution network.But then the unthinkable happens While working through a drug deal, Hoffman realizes that one of the buyers is also an infiltrator He can t blow the cover that he has worked so hard to develop the other man is murdered by Piet s criminal cohorts Hoffman anonymously calls the police to report the death, and the case is assigned to Detective Inspector Ewert Grens Wilson goes through his chain of command to protect Hoffman, while Grens becomes increasingly frustrated because his investigation is going nowhere At the same time, Grens is finally working through a personal situation that has consumed him for years, shedding the guilt he feels for an accident involving a colleague.The undercover operation continues Hoffman commits a minor crime so that he can go to prison and work on establishing the Polish Mafia as the source for drugs for the inmates with the Mafia s ultimate goal being to control the drug distribution in the country s fifty six prisons Before being committed, he has met with the police authorities and been reassured that he will be released from the prison within two years and that he will be protected while he is there Before he is incarcerated, he takes several actions to plan for what he will do in the event that he is exposed and the guarantee conveniently forgotten.Although the start of THREE SECONDS is somewhat slow, it rapidly evolves into an unputdownable narrative The character of Piet Hoffman is an intriguing one He is devoted to his wife and two sons yet, he is willing to sacrifice those relationships in his unwavering commitment to the task that he has been assigned It was fascinating to watch him plan for his prison stay, without quite knowing why he was doing what he was doing It all made sense in the end In an interesting quandary, I found myself hoping that somehow the brilliant and dedicated Grens would falter in his investigation The book builds to an explosive climax and a most satisfying conclusion Although the story of Piet Hoffman was what kept my adrenalin pumping, the whole issue of the government lies that Grens uncovers was quite compelling as well I found THREE SECONDS to be an engrossing and exciting read Certainly, the fact that it received the Best Swedish Crime Novel of the Year in 2009 was justified.
