• "An artfully written, exuberant thriller with a mercurial and interesting central character"

  • "It's a rare treat to read a book by the far-from-prolific Danish author Peter Høeg. . . His latest novel is an offbeat futuristic thriller. . . the challenges Hoeg sets his readers are well worth taking on"

  • "A well-tuned and clever femi-thriller."

  • "A continually surprising conspiracy thriller."

    The Mail on Sunday
  • "Peter Høeg is back. And better. And with a novel that is both a thriller, a social critique, and existentially provoking – and on top of that, wonderful and funny."
