"Lying next to the left-hand row of desks is Dennis...from Uganda. He says he's 17, but he looks like a fat 25 year old... Samir and I are in the same class because Samir managed to be accepted to our school's special programme in international economics and social sciences. Up at the lectern is Christer, our form teacher and self-described social activist. His mug has overturned and coffee is dripping on to the leg of his trousers. Amanda, no more than two metres away, is propped against the radiator under the window. Just a few minutes ago, she was all cashmere, white gold and sandals... Now you might think she was covered in mud. I am sitting on the floor in the middle of the classroom. In my lap is Sebastian, the son of the richest man in Sweden... The people in this room do not go together. People like us don't usually hang out... It smells like rotten eggs. The air is hazy and grey with gunpowder smoke. Everyone has been shot but me. I haven't got so much as a bruise." Maja Norberg is a normal 18 year old, the poster girl next door, popular and excelling at her school work, caught in the middle of a terrible tragedy. Or is she the most reviled teenager in the country? Either way everyone knows her name. She has spent nine excruciating months in jail, awaiting trial for a mass murder that killed her boyfriend and her best friend, and now the time has come for her to enter the court room. Is she a cold-blooded murderer or just the girl who lost her way and as a consequence has lost the ones she loved? The five students were not sitting in neat rows that morning listening intently to their tutor. Who were they? Why were they there in that particular room at that particular time? Is Maja innocent until the courts have ruled her guilty? Now a popular Netflix series, the book expertly delves into the fickle psyche of the media. Another Scandinavian crime blockbuster. 406pp.
