Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Fans of Henning Mankell, Karin Fossum and Arnaldur Indridason will be rewarded.” Publishers Weekly
“The plot is as dark as a winter solstice. Larsson’s genius is her ability to enter the deranged criminal mind…The bleakness of the Swedish psyche is laid bare, and it is not a pretty thing.” AudioFile
“Larsson…delivers plenty of suspense, but her real gift lies in her ability to climb inside the minds of her characters, analyzing their motivations for doing damage and good.” Booklist (starred review)
“A virtuoso mood piece that works endless changes on its unforgiving landscape.” Kirkus Reviews
