Three Seconds, a-minus, by Anders Roslund, Borge Hellstrom, and translated from Swedish into English by Kari Dickson, narrated by Christopher Lane, produced by Brilliance Audio, downloaded from audible.com.

In this crime novel from number-one best-selling Swedish writing duo Roslund and Hellstrom, Piet Hoffman is the Swedish police's most valuable
secret operative. His cover is that of a lieutenant inside the ruthless Polish mafia, trying to take over amphetamine distribution within Sweden's prison
system. With this, his most dangerous assignment, success will mean a new identity and the freedom to start a new life with his wife and young sons. When
a botched drug deal involving Hoffman results in the cold-blooded killing of a police informant, the investigation, assigned to the Detective Inspector Ewert Grens, someone who always doggedly seeks the truth wherever it may lead, finds a string of unsolved cases in which key evidence has been withheld under mysterious circumstances. As Grens's investigation takes him closer to the truth, government lies are exposed and Hoffman is trapped in prison, wanted dead by both the police and the mafia.
He has only one chance to make it out alive and start a new life. One chance and Three Seconds. This book was a number-one best-seller in Sweden and the winner of the Swedish Academy of Crime Writers' 2009 award for Best Swedish Crime Novel of the Year.
