Praise for Another Time, Another Life
"A dark, politically charged thriller . . . Red herrings--perhaps better, Red Brigades herrings--ensue, as Persson unfolds a carefully plotted story . . . A practiced, Larsson-worthy procedural." --Kirkus Reviews
"Exceptional . . . Persson writes with a sure hand and sharp
insight. His detectives are human, interesting, and fallible . . .
Fans of Scandinavian crime fiction will eat it up." --Library
Praise for Between Summer's Longing and Winter's End
"Unquestionably the best Swedish crime novel I've read so far . . . Persson's sardonic description of how both uniformed and secret police operate is devastating and, at times, acidly funny." --The Boston Globe "Something possibly unique in modern crime fiction: a dark, dark comedy of crossed purposes, mistakes, and misunderstanding that result, almost coincidentally, in the assassination of a prime minister. [An] exceptional novel." --Library Journal "Laced with irony and satire . . . Persson does a fine job of pitting one desperate soul against another in a philosophically charged tale worthy of Ingmar Bergman--but with lots more guns." --Kirkus Reviews "Persson tells a story that keeps us alternately bemused, aghast, and guessing
to the end." --Sacramento Book Review
