• "Persson is more authentic than Stieg Larsson."

    La Repubblica, Italy
  • "Persson remains unthreatened as the King of Swedish crime writing"

    Kvällsposten, Sweden
  • "Persson combines the humor of Van Veeteren, Håkan Nesser's hero with the energy of Henning Mankell's detective Kurt Wallander."

    Trouw, Netherlands
  • "Read the book for its teeming sarcasm, its humor and its portrait of a dying detective and his tender, almost beautiful, relationships to friends and family – and perhaps to get a sharpened view of morals and revenge."
