Product Details


“Gripping…An expert melding of sociological observation and psychological acuity.”

“An extremely accomplished cross between crime fiction and psychological thriller…on par with P. D. James.”
Helsingsborgs Dagblad (Sweden)

“Masterful…While +ke Edwardson possesses an undertone of humor, his work is full of darkness…With The Shadow Woman [he] establishes himself among the most exciting crime thriller writers in the country.”
Motala & Vadstena Tidning (Sweden)

“Erik Winter could be related to Elizabeth George’s Sir Thomas Lynley, and the almost clinical descriptions might evoke pathologist Kay Scarpetta in Patricia Cornwell’s books, while the social ambience could well be inspired by both P. D. James and Minette Walters.”
SmslSnningen (Sweden)

“A dramatic crime chase in Gothenburg, intelligently and excitingly told.”
Der Spiegel (Germany)

“[Here is] the opportunity to discover a Swede well removed from the ‘Swedish model’ and enter into the world of +ke Edwardson. Try this voyage, and you will return to it.”
Marianne (France)
