It’s a dark part of the society that is pictured in the novels of Roslund and Hellström. In “Box 21”, the focus is on victims of trafficking and how it affects the girls involved.
Young Lydia from Lativa has been locked in an apartment for almost three years, forced to receive large amounts of men every day.
At the same time, a drug dealer somewhere in Stockholm is diluting his amphetamine with washing powder.
Both of them will soon be involved in criminal investigations and Detective Ewert Grens and Detective Inspector Sven Sundkvist suddenly has two cases to solve.
Roslund and Hellström ask their writers about who a criminal is, if a person is the victim of a crime, and then commits one as well, what happens then? Is the person a criminal or a victim? And who has the right to decide that?
