Summary
Stockholm, the 1930s. Former boxer Harry Kvist makes a living chasing bad debts and looking for runaway girls, and has a penchant for sex with both men and women. When Kvist is wrongly accused of murder, he is forced to navigate the shanty-towns, speakeasies, brothels and contraband stores of Stockholm's underworld, in a desperate search for the only person who can save him. Torn between his broken past and his desire to survive, between his pride and his misery, Kvist risks his life in a violent quest for justice. Gritty, stylish Scandinavian noir from one of Sweden's hottest emerging authors. CLINCH is a pacey, intelligent, and frequently shocking thriller, told in a wonderfully original voice

Summary
An ultra-gritty piece of contemporary Swedish noir, set in a decrepit, highly atmospheric 1930s Stockholm that is a far cry from the modern, egalitarian capital city of today. The writing's on the wall for Harry Kvist. Once a notorious boxer, he now spends his days drinking, and his nights chasing debts amongst the pimps, prostitutes and petty thieves of 1930s Stockholm. When women can't satisfy him, men can. But one biting winter's night he pays a threatening visit to a debtor named Zetterberg, and when the man is found dead shortly afterwards, all eyes are on Kvist
