Praise

“Intriguing… sensuous.”
The Wall Street Journal 

“Sumptuous.”
Publishers Weekly

“There is much more to this wonderfully idiosyncratic novel from Sweden; it is not only a riveting, psychologically astute mystery but also a work of history, natural history (the pastor is a gifted botanist), and religion…superb. It is not to be missed.”
Booklist (starred)

“Vivid and engaging. This marvelous historic crime novel plumbs the bogs of 19th-century Sweden–and the mysteries of the soul.” 
Shelf Awareness (starred)

“Divine. This book is a masterpiece.” 
—Daglabet 
(Norway)

“Niemi is a born storyteller, To Cook a Bear is a beguiling and seductive read.” 
Crime Time (UK)

“Niemi succeeds in constructing a story that works as a murder mystery and as a compelling study of a dangerously inward-looking community.”
Sunday Times (UK)

“Niemi’s writing – that of a narrator and a poet, a dreamer and a storyteller – brushes the highest peaks of the most delicate lyricism, rising strongly out of the abyss of the darkest mystery.”
—Corierre della Sera (Italy)
