Praise for Hour of the Wolf

“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

“Intelligent and appealing . . . Hour of the Wolf was first published in Swedish in 1999 (as Carambole), and it’s taken far too long to reach our shores . . . Like all the Van Veeteren novels, it was worth the wait.” —Bookpage

“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

Praise for Håkan Nesser and the Inspector Van Veeteren Mysteries

“This is stylish, atmospheric crime fiction with a strong moral core from an award-winning author; essential for readers of the genre.” —Library Journal

“A consistently outstanding series.” —Booklist

“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)

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