Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Imagine The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo meets The Sopranos, then crank up the intrigue and rip off the knob. Alexander Söderberg has penned an awesome thriller you won’t want to miss.” Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Black List
“Söderberg has created an entertaining, engaging, and wonderfully bloody-minded world. He’s a great storyteller. It’s that simple.” Scott Smith, New York Times bestselling author of The Ruins
“The international cast is packed with compelling bad guys, the plot is intricate and urgent, and the dialogue is tense and true and sometimes even funny. A joy-ride of a read.” Chris Pavone, New York Times bestselling author of The Expats
“[Söderberg] writes with feeling about the crushing psychological stress felt by both cops and criminals.” New York Times Book Review
“[A] tense, accomplished debut…Swift, well-written, and often grisly.” Wall Street Journal
“Takes up Stieg Larsson’s mantle in icy, brutal style…This adrenalized debut leads you into a European drug ring and introduces an unlikely heroine who’s caught in the crossfire.” Entertainment Weekly
“Excellent…[a] jam-packed plot.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“A multi-stranded plot that holds together as exquisitely as finely wound silk…As with the Larsson trilogy, it’s the woman at the center who sparks the engine. By novel’s end, Sophie has realized that ‘she was bigger than she had dared to see.’ We see it, too, and are ready to follow her anywhere.” Booklist (starred review)
“Söderberg is masterful.” Kirkus Reviews
“Söderberg writes exceptionally well-drawn and sympathetic characters…and has the chops to move a story along with the best of them.” BookPage
“A timely thriller [that] adds some gritty saturated color to the minimal black-and-white palette of Nordic noir.” Mystery Scene
