From the Back Cover:

"Well-paced...a thinking man's thriller." --The New York Times Book Review

“Satisfying.... [Mankell's] Sweden, cold, isolated and brimming with disappointment--is as intriguing a landscape as Raymond Chandler's Los Angeles or Charles Willeford's Miami." --The Wall Street Journal

“Wonderful! Police procedural with personal texture.” --Associated Press
