Praise for The Torso

“The scenes in which Huss tracks her killer through the underbelly of Copenhagen are as good as Louise Welsh’s similarly creepy tour of Glasgow in The Cutting Room.
Entertainment Weekly

“These days Scandinavian crime writers are thick on the ground . . . It’s nice to see that the women can be just as bloodthirsty as the men.”
The New York Times Book Review

“[Tursten] is a master at setting the scene, detailing a foreign milieu until it feels familiar. She juggles a large cast of characters with aplomb.”
Time Out Chicago

“One of the better examples of the Swedish crime fiction invasion.”
The Baltimore Sun

“A fascinating glimpse of cultural dynamics in Scandinavia, this is an absorbing, character-driven series . . . The writing is spare, vivid and atmospheric. This is a series for readers who like procedurals with a strong psychological component.”
Portsmouth Herald

“Outstanding . . . Smart and intuitive, Huss is a fully realized character . . . Vivid writing, strong sense of place, distinctive characters and steady pace.”
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“Spins a good story . . . this is a solid police procedural.”
Library Journal
