Reviews

"Unquestionably among the most entertaining you can find in the season's crop of Swedish crime fiction." * Expressen (Sweden) *
"Leif GW Persson is a highly intelligent entertainer, able to make the reader writhe with laughter on one hand and flinch over the sharp and critical depictions of contemporary society on the other ... To put it simply, I haven't had this much fun reading a crime novel in a long time." * Skanska Dagbladet ( Sweden) *
"Leif GW Persson undoubtedly writes the most entertaining crime literature in Sweden right now, not least because of the priceless police detective Backstroem - a con man whom we love to hate." * Dala-Demokraten (Sweden) *
"Despite - or thanks to - Backstroem's asinine character the plot strands are elegantly woven together into a powerful whole that satisfies the readers' desire for a titillating cast of characters, strange coincidences, and a waft of history." * Aftonbladet (Sweden) *
