Praise

“A brilliant police procedural. . . . An absolutely masterful crime novel.”
Booklist (starred review)

“[A] cleverly plotted police procedural…. Demonstrates real brilliance.”
Publishers Weekly 

“Memorable. . . . well-paced. . . . brooding. . . . the crux of the story lies in Johansson’s wrestling with an appropriate solution to a crime that, incredibly, is fast slipping to the other side of the statute of limitations: does he let the bad guy get away, or does he take justice into his own hands? A knotty, sinuous story that leads to a hard-won resolution—and a decidedly conclusive end.”
Kirkus Reviews

“The King of Swedish crime writing. Period.”
Kvällsposten, Sweden 

“Extraordinarily fascinating . . . Extremely hard to put down.” 
Jyllands-Posten, Denmark (five stars) 

“With this amazing novel, Persson proves himself to be a significant voice, 
classic yet original.”
La Repubblica, Italy 

“Phenomenally brilliant.”
Politiken, Denmark (five stars) 

“Persson is a divinely gifted storyteller.”
Dagens Nyheter, Sweden 

“Excellent . . . Clever, amusing and imaginative.”
Folketidende, Denmark
