The Zack Series

Zack Herry is the sharp and tireless twenty-seven-year old star of the Stockholm police force. His mother Anna was once a rising star herself within the police, when she was brutally killed in the line of duty. As soon as Zack understood what had happened to her, he made it his one driving force to become a police and to dedicate his life to tracking down his mother’s murderer. His troubled childhood in a suburban ghetto makes him eager to succeed – but also to relish the temptations of the night. Uncovering Stockholm’s dark underbelly is not only a professional challenge, but a cause for conflict since those he hunts in his day job overlap with those whose company he seeks out at night. Pulling off this delicate balancing act requires a policeman of Zack’s caliber.

Zack has lofty goals of wanting to rid the city of crime, but his own dark past and desire for the thrill of drugs keep catching up to him and complicate things – for himself and for the police. He works closely with a cohort of colleagues on the force, but his most trusted colleague is Deniz Akin who fled Kurdistan at age twelve. Straightforward and brutally honest, Deniz is someone Zack can rely on. They work together on crimes of utmost evil that only investigators out of the ordinary are capable of solving: the trafficking and murder of Thai women, boys gone missing and tortured to death by a lion-like creature, teenagers committing collective suicide, and the rescue mission of an old friend stuck in a lawless part of Stockholm.

In the Zack-series, the hailed Scandinavian master of suspense Mons Kallentoft has teamed up with the writer Markus Lutteman, known for his precise writing style and ability to depict complex and challenging characters. Together, they have created modern crime novels loosely based on the Greek myth of Hercules. Zack is a contemporary anti-hero who solves seemingly impossible cases in a godlike manner but is plagued by an inherited darkness that seems to date back to the beginning of time. From the fifth book and onwards, Kallentoft is writing in collaboration with skilled crime writer and ex-police Anna Karolina to bring readers new Zack stories. The rapid suspense of this raw series is of a mythological magnitude that has awed readers in fourteen countries to date.
