Praise

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 Journal
 
 
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
