Product Details


“A rising Scandinavian star poses troubling questions about the double-edged sword of motherhood and the rancorous debates over women’s bodies.” —Oprah Daily

“An intricate, textured slow-burner that paints a vivid picture of a post-Soviet state where gangsters rule and the exploitation of the female body is big business…The pathos is fuel for real suspense.” —Guardian

“Remarkably ambitious…The translation conveys the mounting tension…Oksanen has much to say about the price of parenthood and the cost for young women who, with few other options to escape poverty, become egg donors or surrogates.” Sarah Weinman, New York Times Book Review

“There is nothing average about this knotty thriller.” —Daily Mail

Dog Park will tantalize…Oksanen’s tactic of deliberate opacity is popular in prestige television suspense series like ‘Killing Eve,’ and ‘The Flight Attendant,’ whose fans, enthralled by pervasive dread and beguiled by jumps between alien settings, don’t mind when motives, identities and places are hard to pin down. The confusion is intrinsic to the allure.” —Wall Street Journal

“A dystopian novel that seems all too real…We learn much about the precarious state of post-Soviet Ukraine…Oksanen subtly but viscerally depicts jeopardy and romance.” Kirkus Reviews

“The Soviet Union’s collapse looms large over Oksanen’s intricate plot, which rivets…Fans of slow-burning suspense will find much to enjoy.” Publishers Weekly

“Breathtaking…With Dog Park, Sofi Oksanen truly does triumph.” —Kainuun Sanomat

Dog Park is a stunning, furious depiction of the traumas and struggles of the survivors of the Soviet Union…Oksanen is a master.” —Mesta

“Nerve-racking until the last page.” —Les Inrockuptibles

“Both a thriller and a historical novel, Dog Park is, in a nutshell, a Grimms’ fairy tale made reality.” —Lire

“Unstoppable.” —Kulturen

“Both a sharp analysis of society and an accomplished, ingeniously constructed work of suspense…A Finnish-Estonian Charles Dickens novel.” —Information

“Impossible to put down…Reminiscent of le Carré’s better moments.” —Aftonbladet

“Unendingly fascinating…I of course thought of Margaret Atwood’s novel The Handmaid’s Tale—but also of something far harder to fathom: our current moment.” —Västerbottens-Kuriren

“Oksanen paints an image of life in the former Soviet Union with such vividness that you can see it before your own eyes.” —NRK

“Sofi Oksanen returns to the top of the literary world with Dog Park.” —Dagsavisen
