Reviews

Praise for Snowdrift

"Spellbinding . . . The action includes a spectacular chase sequence, a bombshell twist that turns the cases around, and an explosive firestorm. This stunning page-turner is unarguably the best in the series."
-Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"Nightmares about the abduction of her childhood best friend, Lollo, have bedeviled police officer Embla Nystroem for half of her 28 years. One of those jarring nightmares opens Helene Tursten's latest thriller, Snowdrift . . . As always in Tursten's books, the well-drawn characters and first-rate suspense provide fine examples of the dark delights of Scandinavian noir."

"[An] outstanding series launch . . . Embla is a refreshingly capable lead, whose situational ethics means that she doesn't feel she must do everything by the book."
-Publishers Weekly
, Starred Review

"Embla, still plagued by nightmares about losing her teenage best friend, is a sharp, willful, though emotionally vulnerable detective. Fans of the Huss novels in particular and Nordic noir in general will want to follow this series from its start."
-Booklist
, Starred Review

"Tursten delivers with an intricate, complex (but not confusing), carefully constructed plot with a long list of victims and a longer list of suspects to go with it . . . a perfect winter read."
-Mystery Scene Magazine
