BOX 21

BOX 21

A young Romanian woman named Lidia is lured to Sweden by her boyfriend with false promises of a better life. But instead of getting a job at a restaurant in Stockholm as she has been promised, Lidia is trafficked into forced prostitution. Refusing to accept this as her fate, Lidia instantly begins to rebel against her oppressors.

In another part of the Swedish capital, senior police officer Ewert Grens is chasing the criminal Jochum Lang, a dangerous man who Ewert hates with a vengeance.

Two stories of passionate reprisal twist together, as the lines between criminal and victim are rapidly blurring. Can Ewert and his young colleague Mariana Hermansson untangle the complex and deadly web of secrets? What answers does the elusive Box 21 hold? And when it comes down to it, will Mariana protect the senior officer she so admires?
