  • The Trio is like the love child of Normal People and Brideshead Revisited. A sublime and elegiac mediation on love, intimacy, freedom and jealousy, it elegantly explores the gulf between our interior lives and the personas we perform - and between ourselves and other people. Hedman's writing (and Josefsson's stunning translation) is staggeringly beautiful. Vivid, effortless, and perceptive to a molecular degree

    Francesca Reece, author of 'Voyeur'
  • Wonderful. A celebration of real friendship, ill-fated love and the relationships which loom large over a lifetime. Fans of Sally Rooney will adore this excellent novel, which has garnered rave reviews

    The Bookseller
  • Delicate and beguiling... The Trio spans from Berlin to London to Paris as the [characters] continually renegotiate who they each are to each other, questions of ownership and privilege floating in the background of summers which feel both fleeting and endless

  • An international success before even being published, The Trio is a novel that stands well above the hype... Elegiac, bittersweet, [with] the golden shimmer of nostalgia, it is a story about big emotions

    Gefle Dagblad
  • Mature and confident, delicate and eloquent, a study in intimacy . . . Timeless and universal

    Kult Magasin
  • Full of verve, nostalgia, longing and the claustrophobic euphoria of being in the world with the people you love, this gorgeous novel whisks you along with it; you have no choice but to gratefully follow

    Lara Williams, author of 'Supper Club'
  • Vigorous and vivid, wistful and engaging. Johanna Hedman should definitely expect to win prizes

    Upsala Nya Tidning
  • An acute, eloquent and bittersweet debut... There may be an August Prize nomination!

  • An unusual debut, confident and intriguing, [by] a mature and gifted writer. The implicit nostalgia works its magic [in this] story of the time when life first gains colour and shape

  • The ending leaves a stinging sensation [asking] questions of what really becomes important in hindsight, what we remember and how we remember it, and, not least why we become who we are as a consequence of our choices
