Product Details


Praise for Protected by the Shadows

“Written in Tursten’s familiar straight-ahead style . . . will have you on the edge of your seat.” 
—The Toronto Star

“Tursten fans will be excited to read this satisfying tenth and final book in her Swedish procedural series.”
Library Journal

“A terrifying look into the life of a police officer more personally involved in a case than she’d like to be.” 
—New York Journal of Books

“Tursten keeps the level of suspense high from beginning to end.”
—Kittling Books

“In addition to the skillful interweaving of personal and professional tension, Swedish author Helene Tursten provides memorable descriptions of the gritty reality of crime investigation.”
—Kingdom Books

“[Protected by the Shadows] is a hallmark of sorts in the series, given that it features a tale in which Irene’s two worlds collide dangerously and violently.”
—The Book Reporter

Praise for the Irene Huss series

“As good as Louise Welsh’s similarly creepy tour of Glasgow.”
Gillian Flynn, 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

“An engaging mystery with a very likable heroine. With a writing style reminiscent of Camilla Läckberg or Henning Mankell, Helene Tursten offers a detective with a nuanced and compelling personal life, as well as a dark and intriguing mystery.”
—Shelf Awareness
