• "He writes simply and gracefully...Mankell at his best"

    Daily Telegraph
  • "Brilliant...exceptionally well written...a white knuckle page-turner... Mankell translates the intrigue of the genre he has become so famous for into an existential whodunit: a profound and searing investigation into the loneliness of man"

    Sunday Telegraph
  • "A tense tale whose violence and uneasiness contrast to great effect with Olofson's deadpan narrative tone and Mankell's spare prose"

  • "The writer [is] clear about his authorial target, which is to expose the myth of Swedish neutrality with a savage portrait of its foreign aid system"

  • "The Eye of the Leopard is a thriller of the mind: a chilling journey into the depths of fear, alienation and despair"
