Review:

"This is two for the price of one - the finely crafted thriller you'd expect from Mankell, and the powerful social comment you wouldn't" ( Daily Sport)

"On one level, it is a mystery; but it is also an angry polemic on a subject that Mankell feels strongly about - the unnecessary suffering of AIDS victims in Africa" ( The Times)

"A journey into the darkest reaches of exploitation" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Mankell is writing with his heart on his sleeve, and the subject matter is a worthy one" ( Irish Times)

"Inventive, funny and worryingly prophetic" ( Guardian)
