Product Details


Praise for The Treacherous Net

“Excellent . . . incisive . . . The most affecting aspect of this police procedural? Watching the detectives—several of whom have daughters of their own—confront the realities behind what made the victims so vulnerable, realities that cross class and socioeconomic lines.”
—The Boston Globe 

The Treacherous Net is most accomplished in its plot, with several threads exploring history, long-standing social stigmas and the power of the Internet. This fast-paced, gritty thriller offers both a dark story and a striking hero.”
—Shelf Awareness

“Tursten has come up with another page-turner.”
—Deadly Pleasures

“Huss is nobody’s fool, and she deftly maneuvers her way toward center stage . . . If you like Scandinavian mysteries, this will be right up your alley.”
—Bruce Tierney, BookPage

“If Swedish crime has a crowd of gloomy detectives in one corner and a bunch of unlikely crimes in picturesque settings in the other, Tursten plants her flag in the middle: in a place where most of us live. Translator Marlaine Delargy does justice to this author’s straightforward prose style.”
—Scandinavian Crime Fiction 

The Treacherous Net is an entertaining read in a very strong and very highly recommended series.”
—Kittling Books

“Go ahead and dig into this traditional police crime novel.”
—Kingdom Books

“Fans of the genre will not be disappointed by this latest Irene Huss novel.” 
—New York Journal of Books

—Publishers Weekly 

“Göteborg’s Violent Crimes Unit never has a nice day . . . DI Irene Huss remains appealingly unflappable under pressure.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“Fans of the big-name Scandinavian crime-fiction writers (Mankell, Larsson, Nesbø) will be delighted to discover there are already eight books in Tursten’s intriguing series.”

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.”
The Philadelphia Inquirer

“The cast of characters is a colorful array, each officer vividly and individually drawn . . . Thoroughly engaging and convincingly unraveled.”
—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“Fans of Henning Mankell and Håkan Nesser will enjoy Tursten. For readers new to the series, there is no need to start at the beginning. Allow yourself time, this can be easily read in one sitting.”
—Library Journal
