"Fossum is admired by Ruth Rendell and you can see why'" Daily Mail "A contemporary Patricia Highsmith, her offbeat obsession with the psychology of the criminal mind, and the human cost of criminal activity, pays off handsomely yet again" Irish Times "It is a sign of Fossum's sophistication that the reader comes to empathise with the teenaged tormentor - a deliberate ploy which makes the double-twist ending all the more shocking" Sunday Telegraph "Fossum's Norway is an apposite setting for a long dark night of the soul" Independent "With a focus on characters and the impacts of crime, Fossum's psychological thrillers will appeal, in particular, to fans of Anne Holt and Henning Mankell" Booklist
