“A great mystery that belongs in the company of other knockout masterpieces of moral complexity and atmosphere like Dorothy Sayers’s The Nine Tailors, Robert Goddard’s Beyond Recall, Barbara Vine’s A Dark-Adapted Eye. . . . A brilliant tale of suspense and substance that dedicated mystery readers will want to savor.”—Washington Post
 
“A terrific police procedural.”—Dallas Morning News
 
“Mankell’s new book is an original but still chock-a-block with gory crime combined with hints of the late Stieg Larsson’s social concern and John le Carré’s international intrigue.”—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“Its aim is broad and high, startlingly so: It’s out to shake us up, saying something about the world we’re in, about the nature of our lives at this moment. . . . The Man from Beijing is flavored with the . . . tang of time’s passage itself. . . . Remarkable.”—Philadelphia Inquirer
