I read this book 4 1/2 years ago when it was titled The Beast. It is annoying to read it again because some stupid publisher (Quercus) decided to reissue the book with a new name. So I am subtracting a star for that mistake. Still unnecessarily violent and graphic. ( )

A very disturbing story: the escape during transport of convicted pedophile and child-killer, Bernt Lund, who subsequently abducts and mutilates a young girl from the safety of her elementary schoolyard. The real story is about her divorced father, Fredrik Steffansson, who takes the law into his own hands, tracking down the sadist before the police can do so and putting him down. The book is overly graphic, and the main storyline is resolved too early, with only a marginal role for Inspector Ewert Grens. I did not like all of the accompanying storylines in the prison, which I thought added little to the main plot. ( )

This was the first book by the writing duo Roslund and Hellström that I read, but it was certainly not my last. While it's been a while since I read the book, I see I rewarded it five stars.

I remember it as thought-provoking. It's not so much the murder mystery, but the questions that arise afterwards that form this book. While the topic and the crimes are disturbing, I really enjoyed the book. ( )

Over the years, one thing I've noticed so many non-American writers do so well is to provide in-depth backstories to their main plot. Sometimes, while reading novels such as this, it becomes too easy to ponder, "what does all this have to do with the main plot?" and then, one later finds out.

Anders Roslund and Borge Hellstrom do likewise.

The novel Pen 33, aka The Beast, is a novel of troubling and unsettling content - sexual homicide involving children. The writing is graphically descriptive. Still, Roslund and Hellstrom's writing is not gratuitous or exploitative. To me, in reading the novel, their words are to be taken as real, with the purpose to leave a mark upon the reader (in their after comments they remark how each character in the book is "real," which I took to mean in their lives, they have encountered either individuals the characters are based upon or have knowledge of real people these characters are based upon).

The story involves DCI Ewert Grens, a cantankerous, veteran police detective with successful investigative credentials that allow him to be the way he is, in an investigation involving a child murder-rapist.

That is just the briefest of descriptions, because the complete story is much deeper and broader than that. The story is also more meaningful and asks deeper questions about morality, evil, the rule of law and what it involves trying to live and behave in the boundaries of rules, either formal or informal.

This is a powerful novel and more than a mere detective/crime/thriller/mystery novel if the reader allows it to be one. It is also a very dark and disturbing novel.

Highly recommended. ( )

En bok som verkligen berör. Tyvärr finns dessa odjur mitt ibland oss. Förutom att den är spännande tar den också upp en intressant moralisk diskussion om vem som har rätt att döma andra människor. Vad är rätt och fel? Är det rätt att ta lagen i egna händer? Är ett brott alltid ett brott? ( )

To barn blir funnet døde i en kjellerbod. Morderen rømmer fra fengselet etter fire år, og han kommer til å drepe igjen. Jakten på morderen fører til nye voldshandlinger som sprer seg som smitte fra en småbyidyll til et sterkt bevoktet fengsel. Politi og påtalemyndigheter er maktesløse, og en fars kjærlighet til sitt barn kan få han til å gjøre skremmende ting. For er noens liv mer verdt enn andres? Dette er den første romanen hvor du møter politimennene Ewert Grens og Sven Sundkvist.
