"The second prison" by Ronan Bennett

This book kind of reminded me of the films "Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels" and "Veronica Guerin". Pretty dark, no-hope criminal gang members in Northern Ireland caught in cycles of crime and prison sentences and revenge against the English and each other. Unlike "Lock Stock" it was not really humerous, but this book is well written and thought-provoking. It also has themes of love and betrayal throughout it, and questions about life and what is important in it.
