Product Details


Praise for The Fire Dance

“A strong mystery and an interesting setting . . . Readers will also find it entertaining to read about life in Sweden, which is not so foreign that outsiders can’t relate.”
Romantic Times Book Reviews

“As in the previous five installments in the series, Irene juggles her police duties with family life . . . But she prevails somehow in both roles. At the same time, [Tursten] manages to move a crime story forward subtly with panache. Recommended.”
Spinetingler Magazine

“Fans will enjoy the details of Huss’s early career and her continuing family saga . . . Readers of Anne Holt or Mari Jungstedt will enjoy this installment.”
Library Journal

“Series fans should enjoy glimpsing her [Inspector Irene Huss] early days on the force and seeing her 18-year-old daughter, Katarina, find a passion for dance.”
—Publishers Weekly 

“Irene juggles her police duties with family life, her gourmet chef husband and twin daughters who now exhibit minds of their own in relation to their interests and boyfriends . . . But she prevails somehow in both roles. At the same time, the author manages to move a crime story forward subtly with panache. Recommended.”
—Midwest Book Review

“[The Fire Dance] slices realistically into and out of Huss’s professional and personal lives. Not everything is wrapped up neatly by the end . . . mak[ing] the reader both wonder about and anticipate the next installment. This is a great series, the audience for which hopefully will grow exponentially with each subsequent release.”
—Book Reporter

“[Fire and] family secrets are at the core of this intriguing mystery [whose] subtle, clever plot development that makes you realize there’s complexity . . . that will surface as the investigation proceeds.”

“[Is The Fire Dance] good? You bet it is, especially due to the strong cast of characters Tursten has created—and those characters have more than one surprise in store for readers like me who have followed this series from the start.”
—Kittling Books

“For those who enjoy solid police procedurals with a personal twist.”
Scandinavian Crime Fiction

Praise for the Irene Huss series

“As good as Louise Welsh’s similarly creepy tour of Glasgow.”
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] imbues this novel with a cold chill of dread that can’t be attributed only to the subfreezing temperatures of Göteborg in winter.”
Chicago Sun Times

“Truly satisfying.”
Philadelphia Inquirer
