Praise

Praise for Håkan Nesser’s Hour of the Wolf and the Inspector Van Veeteren Mysteries

“Of all the Swedes freakishly gifted at writing crime fiction (really, there must be something in the water), Nesser is up there with the best.” —Entertainment Weekly

“The pleasures of Hour of the Wolf have as much to do with the philosophical musings of the cops as the increasingly twisted first-person narration of their prey.” —Chicago Tribune

“Nesser’s novels look for the roots of crime in the ills of society.  . . . He has seized his chance to create his own dark poetry from these stark materials, and the effect is haunting.” —The Wall Street Journal

“Nesser is a master of suspense.” —The Sunday Times (London)

“[Holds] readers’ attention in an unbreakable grip. . . . There is not a single misstep.” — 
The Independent  
(London) 

“Håkan Nesser’s Hour of the Wolf will have you howling with pleasure.” —Evening Standard (London)

“Magnificent. . . . Like Kate Atkinson, Nesser draws believable lines between crimes in this series’ sixth tale, linking them with a trail of psychological crumbs and adding a bit of heart to the series’ moody atmosphere and cerebral thrills.”  —Booklist 

“No frills, no subplots, no unnecessary moving parts: an autumnal procedural that illustrates what superior results you can get by stripping away the extras.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Intelligent and appealing . . . . Like all the Van Veeteren novels, [Hour of the Wolf] was worth the wait.” Bookpage

“Inspector Van Veeteren seems destined for a place amongst the great European detectives.” —Colin Dexter, author of the Inspector Morse mysteries
