Reviews

"Persson is more authentic than Stieg Larsson." * La Repubblica, Italy * "Persson remains unthreatened as the King of Swedish crime writing" * Kvallsposten, Sweden * "Persson combines the humor of Van Veeteren, Hakan Nesser's hero with the energy of Henning Mankell's detective Kurt Wallander." * Trouw, Netherlands * "Read the book for its teeming sarcasm, its humor and its portrait of a dying detective and his tender, almost beautiful, relationships to friends and family - and perhaps to get a sharpened view of morals and revenge." * Fyns Amtsavis, Denmark *
