"Recalls Mankell at his best." --The Sunday Times (UK) "Gripping, surprising, and tense." --Crime Review (UK) "It's a better class of murder in Sweden. . . . Epic in scale and ambition, this announces a new arrival in the Swedish crime galaxy." --Daily Mail (UK) "This Scandinavian page-turner is sure to keep you up late into the night." --Guelph Mercury (Canada) "An unusually good debut." --Dagens Nyheter (Sweden) "A through and through brilliant and stringent crime novel that you plow through in large portions with a worryingly high heart rate." --Norrbottens-Kuriren (Sweden) "All admirers of Swedish crime can be thrilled about this book as well as the coming stories in the company of Fabian Risk." --Weekendavisen (Denmark) "My god this grabs. It has hands. Truly." --Caroline Kepnes, author of You "Full of surprise, suspense, and the shadows of the past. I read it in one sitting." -- ke Edwardson, author of Room No. 10 "Grabs you from the very first page and refuses to let you go." --Michael Hjort and Hans Rosenfeldt, authors of the Sebastian Bergman series "More gripping than Jo Nesb , blacker than Stieg Larsson, and more bleakly human than Henning Mankell." --Tony Parsons, author of The Murder Man
