‘‘In life a man must either become angelic or human or animal. I have become none of these things.’’

Crime Wave Tehran was compiled by Pouria Khojastehpay through individual submissions, research in Iranian media archives, and social media.

This book provides a glimpse behind the curtain of state-censorship and takes a closer look into the world of organized crime in Iran. A subject considered taboo in Iran and unheard of amongst many Iranians.

From battle scars and prayers, to criminal tattoos and blood spilt for gold, the Iranian criminals are united by a life in between crime and their devotion to Shia Islam.
