Praise

Praise for the Embla Nyström investigations

“[A] winning series.”
The Wall Street Journal

“An engrossing read.”
BBC Culture

“Haunted, driven, immensely human and highly trained as a hunter and tracker, Embla is a winning new Scandinavian noir lead.” 
—Jane Ciabattari, BBC Culture

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

“Solid and absorbing . . . Tursten takes her time staging the story, focusing on fine descriptions of her rugged setting and the engaging, tough young detective.”
—Adam Woog, The Seattle Times

“A powerful new heroine.” 
Check It Out, KWIT.org

“[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, still plagued by nightmares about losing her teenage best friend, 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

“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
