  • Mystery devotees who loved Mankell's Kurt Wallander, and crime-fiction "lifers" who still treasure Sjowall's and Wahloo's Martin Beck, will want to add Paul Hjelm to their short lists of international favorites

    Booklist
  • Thoughtfully haunting and sometimes beautifully written, the first of Hjelm's cases to be translated into English is likely to resonate with readers of the Stieg Larsson trilogy

    Kirkus (starred)
  • Arne Dahl has created a school of his own within the Swedish crime writing tradition. He combines global intrigue with intelligence, suspense, and genuine literary quality

    Lars Kepler, author of 'The Hypnotist'
  • Loose canon Paul Helm and his character-filled team entertainingly chase multiple false leads as they hunt for a Thelonious Monk obsessed assassin

    Metro
  • [A] superb police procedural... Dahl has created a brilliant character and a terrific story, and should that not be enough, this is a classic cop-shop tale of the old school

    The Globe and Mail (Canada)
