• "Comparisons with Stieg Larsson have been made, but Nesbo's plots move quickly, carry more punch, and really do keep you guessing to the final page"

    Daily Mirror
  • "A cracking good thriller...that will keep you gripped to the last page"

  • "Outstanding... Probably the best big crime novel you could lay your hands on this year"

    BBC Radio 4
  • "Nesbo's novels keep going when you think there can't be any more twists to follow. Scenes switch from the avalanche-threatened ravines and mountain cabins of back-country Norway, close to oil-rich Stavanger and metropolitan Oslo, to an active volcano in Africa"

    Times Literary Supplement
  • "Original Norwegian noir...absorbing"
