Innocent or guilty, her time is running out . . .

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 has spent nine months in jail awaiting trial for a shooting in her school. Among those killed were her boyfriend and her best friend.

Now the time has come for her to enter the courtroom . . .

But is Maja a demonised victim - or cold-blooded killer?
