About the Author

Simon Pasternak is a Danish author, screenwriter and publisher living in Copenhagen. He is the co-author of a bestselling crime series with Christian Dorph, and has co-written two feature films including the historical thriller, The Idealist. Death Zones is his first solo novel, for which he drew inspiration from his own family history and Jewish roots in Russia and Eastern Europe.

Martin Aitken is the acclaimed translator of numerous novels from Danish, including works by Peter H eg, Jussi Adler-Olsen and Pia Juul, and his translations of short stories and poetry have appeared in many literary journals and magazines. In 2012 he was awarded the American-Scandinavian Foundation's Nadia Christensen Translation Prize.


A stunning, dark and frighteningly authentic crime thriller. Death Zones is set in 1943, first on the eastern front and then in Hamburg. Simon Pasternak manages to convey the sheer horrors of both time and place in such a skilful manner that at times the book is hard to read yet impossible to put down -- Alex Gerlis, author The Best of Our Spies and The Swiss Spy
Excellent -- Natasha Harding * Sun *
Haunting... compelling -- Nick Rennison * Sunday Times *
Pasternak is a talented writer and vividly recreates the unbearable horrors inflicted by the Nazis... Death Zones is skilfully done -- Antonia Senior * The Times *
A dark, twisted world of corruption and deception... Pasternak is unflinching in his portrayal of the period's brutality, which is reflected in the invariably violent characters and the occasional raving sadists who occupy it * Real Crime *
