"Boasts the customary ability to render attempts at work and sleep futile until it is finished" -- Jake Kerridge Daily Telegraph "As usual, the brilliant Nesbo is several steps ahead of you in this endlessly twisting, multi-layered thriller that also shines a light on the murky areas of Norway's upper echelons" -- Natasha Harding Sun "Scandinavian crime thrillers don't come much darker or more tense than the best-selling Harry Hole series, and this tenth outing for the Norwegian detective is the best yet" -- Deirdre O'Brien Sunday Mirror "In the dark world of Scandinavian crime, Jo Nesbo's novels are darker than most... Settle down with a glass of Akvavit and prepare for a long night" Independent "Resistance is futile: Nesbo has some rare, Ancient Mariner-type gift for holding his readers completely in thrall until he has finished with us" -- Jake Kerridge Sunday Express "Nesbo's best since The Snowman... Particularly strong in portraying the interaction between cops" -- Marcel Berlins The Times "A terrifying roller-coaster" -- Myles McWeeney Belfast Telegraph
