...... a quarrel in a far away country between people of whom we know nothing.
Neville Chamberlain- Broadcast 27 September 1938

...a nation with five hundred criminal groups that fought every day for a slice of the domestic Polish capital cake, eighty-five even larger criminal groups with international connections, police who frequently took part in armed battles, and a nation that raked in more than five hundred billion kronor every year from the production of synthetic drugs.

Three Seconds: Anders Roslund and Borge Hellstrom

Ali Karim has a two part interview with the authors of Three Seconds, Roslund and Hellstrom at The Rap Sheet, part one and part two.

From the informative interview:
Ali Karim: Poland has been the centre of some of the best grade illegal amphetamine production.
Hellstrom: I have known for years that Poland is both a transit country and also a land of many amphetamine factories.

The Rap Sheet interview with these authors is fantastic. I think the book is too hard-boiled for me, but I enjoyed the interview with the writers.

Kathy I don't think Three Seconds is any more hard boiled than the Larssons, and I thought it was an outstanding thriller. [review up soon]
