• "Nesbo is a master storyteller, gripping the reader from the first page and ratcheting up the suspense in a thrilling finale with several satisfying twists."

    Sunday Express
  • "Keeps the twists and shocks coming hard and fast"

  • "A relentless and breakneck tale that keeps the reader hungrily turning the pages for more"

    Big Issue
  • "A gripping read... I got lost in this book and hours skipped by as the chapters got shorter, more tense and the pace quickened to an almost unbearable crescendo... A thoroughly satisfying read"

    Irish Independent
  • "With echoes of The Thomas Crown Affair, spectacular storytelling and a beautifully judged super-twist, it confirms Nesbo's place at the pinnacle of thriller writers and, inevitably, a film version will be with us next year. It's that good"
