Product Details


Longlisted for the 2019 CWA International Dagger Award

“Excellent series… gripping finale.” — Crime Review 

“Holmén’s sharp dialogue and unerring eye for the grim details of everyday life are still there, as in ‘Clinch’ and ‘Down for the Count’, lending huge power to the story and adding a dimension that lifts this novel head and shoulders above the noir canon.” — Thriller Books Journal

“Holmén is an author on the cutting edge of an art form, pushing deeper into the myre opened up by Jean-Claude Izzo, Derek Raymond and Massimo Carlotto. There is something genuinely cathartic about this reading experience.” — New Books Magazine (5 out of 4 stars)

“Tragic and moving, with a spectacular denouement, it’s a fitting ending to a superb trilogy.” — Guardian 

Praise for The Stockholm Trilogy:
‘Sin City meets Raymond Chandler in this atmospheric and compulsive series’ – Attitude
‘A brilliant new talent’ – Sunday Times Crime Club
‘A dark, atmospheric, powerful thriller, the best debut novel I’ve read in years’ – Lynda La Plante
‘Holmén has Raymond Chandler’s rare ability to evoke a character in a few deft strokes’ – Mail on Sunday, best crime reads of 2016
‘Ferociously noir… If Chandler and Hammett had truly walked on the wild side, it would read like Clinch’ – Val McDermid
‘Gritty stylish Scandinavian noir from one of Sweden’s hottest emerging authors’ – Booklover
‘Atmospheric Scandi retro, but Chandleresque to its core’ – The Sunday Times Crime Club
