What Is Justice?
am 23. Februar 2011
"Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom;
I am understanding, I have strength.
By me kings reign,
And rulers decree justice.
By me princes rule, and nobles,
All the judges of the earth." -- Proverbs 8:14-16 (NKJV)
I found Three Seconds to be one of the best suspense stories I've read in many years. If you like suspense stories, I recommend this one.
Three Seconds delivers a most unusual anti-hero, Piet Hoffman, a criminal turned police informer who is rapidly climbing the ranks of organized crime in Sweden. You'll find yourself cheering him on, if for no other reason than appreciation for an underdog dealing with an impossible situation.
Three Seconds is a suspense novel about crime. Some parts of this book are so intense that I had to put the book down until I felt calmer. The book's strong emotions are brilliantly portrayed, and you'll feel them.
It's not all gut-wrenching, and parts may feel almost dull by comparison to the most vivid sections. Stick with the book and I think you'll feel like you've been on the world's scariest "amusement" ride before you're done.
There's also a lot of food for thought here, starting with the intricate and fascinating plot . . . and ending with questions you'll ask yourself about what justice truly is.
