MEDIA REVIEWS
Razor-sharp... Mankell is, without doubt, one of the most impressive crime writers at work today * Guardian *
Mesmerically fascinating * Daily Telegraph *
A terse, gripping dissection of a broken man whose private morality is as barren as the frozen wastes that betray his destiny * Times Literary Supplement *
An atmospheric and chilling portrait of a disturbed mind * Observer *
A noirish psychological thriller, steeped in eerie premonitions and symbolism, in prose that's as cold, empty and pitiless as the landscape it describes * Metro *
