Praises for Winter Grave

“An engrossing read.”
BBC Culture

“A complex, rounded, and dedicated cop . . . Fans of intelligent Nordic crime fiction—especially those starring Tursten’s other series character, Irene Huss—will be amply rewarded.”
—The Seattle Times

“Embla Nyström is back. This time in full force . . . Tursten delivers with an intricate, complex (but not confusing), carefully constructed plot with a long list of victims and a longer list of suspects to go with it . . . a perfect winter read.”
Mystery Scene Magazine

“An icy blend of everything we love about Scandinavian thrillers . . . Winter Grave will draw you in with its three-dimensional characters and twisting plot—and leave you with the thrilling sense that the universe is a very dark place kept illuminated by people like Embla Nyström.”
BookBub

“Embla, a sharp-witted detective and titled boxer, inspires confidence that the truth will out, despite the pervasive gloom of Tursten’s Swedish winter . . . a winner for fans of Scandinavian crime fiction and atmospheric British procedurals, like those by Susan Hill, Deborah Crombie, and Reginald Hill.”
—Booklist

“A lethal combination of two missing children, arson, and a policeman’s murder . . . Those looking for Scandinavian crime fiction that’s not entirely bleak will be rewarded.”
—Publishers Weekly

“A series of satisfying twists and turns.”
Library Journal

“Tursten’s books present the Swedish setting as if it were a character, in rich, active detail. The cultural quirks that make this so interesting for American readers are front and center in the crimes . . . Make room on the bookshelf for more of this intriguing series.”
—New York Journal of Books

“An excellent mystery.”
Kittling Books

Praise for Hunting Game, the first Embla Nyström investigation


“Impetuous and physical . . . [Embla is] a bright light among young Swedish cop characters.”
—Toronto Star

“Embla is a winning new Scandinavian noir lead.” 
—BBC Culture

“A breathless thriller that’s impossible to put down. I was fascinated by Embla, a credible and complex character who is hiding secrets . . . A great reading experience.”
—Anna Jansson, author of the Maria Wern series

“[An] outstanding series launch . . . Embla is a refreshingly capable lead, whose situational ethics means that she doesn’t feel she must do everything by the book.”
—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review  

“[Embla] is a sharp, willful, though emotionally vulnerable detective. Fans of the Huss novels in particular and Nordic noir in general will want to follow this series from its start.”
—Booklist, Starred Review
