Review:

"Superb new novel...At once intricate and explosive, The Quiet Girl is elegantly written and furiously plotted, resonant (though not acoustically) of Philip Pullman's Dark Materials trilogy and also David Mamet's elaborately staged deceptions" ( Independent on Sunday)

"In Høeg's hallucinatory prose, Copenhagen has a sinister near-future feel... there are also passages of lyrical beauty" ( Financial Times)

"Striking and deeply felt... confirms that Høeg is a writer determined to make new footprints in the snow" (Mark Lawson Guardian)

"He writes entertainingly, at times lyrically, at times scathingly" ( Scotland on Sunday)

" The Quiet Girl has Hoeg's best-selling hallmarks - including an off-kilter hero in the shape of Kasper Krone, a world-famous clown with a penchant for poker and mysticism" ( Daily Mail)

Book Description:

A fast-paced philosophical thriller of rare quality from the author of Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow.
