Reviews

  • "A skilful mix of ghost story and crime thriller...this book is outstanding. It crosses genres effortlessly and keeps all its balls in the air with consummate skill."

    WORD MAGAZINE
  • "If you like Stieg Larsson, try a much better Swedish writer, Johan Theorin, whose first two books (Echoes from the Dead and The Darkest Room) are now available in English. Both self-contained and set on the Baltic island of Oland, both murder mysteries with a sense of the supernatural but explicable all the same"

    OBSERVER
  • "Penetrating, intelligent"

    THE GOOD BOOK GUIDE
  • "Echoes from the Dead was rightly acclaimed in the UK, and this, his second, is even better. A powerful study of grief, loss and vulnerability, with a commendably earth-bound solution"

    GUARDIAN
  • "Theorin builds the tension exquisitely"
