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 *
