Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Anne Holt is the godmother of modern Norwegian crime fiction.” Jo Nesbø, New York Times bestselling author
“Fast-paced and involving…Holt knows psychology as well as she knows the ins and outs of police-work. She quickly draws the reader into the minds and lives of half a dozen disparate characters—none more interesting than Inspector Wilhelmsen herself…Holt’s visions of societal and ethical decay are balanced by glimpses of great poignancy, human consolation, and love.” Wall Street Journal
“A good old-fashioned mystery.” Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
“Move over, Jo Nesbø.” Fort Worth Star-Telegram
“A perfect entry point into Scandinavian crime…A sure pleasure for police-procedural fans who read everything from Slaughter to Nesbø.” Booklist (starred review)
“A sympathetic lead distinguishes Holt’s second novel.” Publishers Weekly
“It’s obvious why the Hanne Wilhelmsen  series has gained popularity among Scandinavian crime enthusiasts. Holt’s tightly wound suspense plots and quirky, likable protagonist are a breath of fresh air. Her latest thriller will quench her parched fans’ thirst.” Library Journal
“Expertly translated for American readers by the highly capable Anne Bruce…A wonderful combination of old-school police procedure and amateur detective work…Holt is a master of balancing criminal procedure with suspense…This is a series that demands to be read, and the more quickly the better.” Bookreporter
