An utterly brilliant crime novel! So delicate and perceptive, and at the same time so endlessly thrilling * Kristina Ohlsson *
What you have in your hands is a masterpiece of crime fiction, a very hot competitor for this year's thriller . . . Anders de la Motte proves once again with his End of Summer that he is one of Scandinavia's most ingenious crime writers, just as grand as Jussi Adler-Olsen. He writes absolutely murderously. His books are definitely unbeatable in terms of suspense * Literaturmarkt, Germany *
An atmospherical dense book reminiscent of Henning Mankell's early crime novels . . . Anders de la Motte writes profoundly without the tension dwindling for a second * Petra Magazine *
A Swedish-set crime thriller for fans of the hugely successful CWA Gold Dagger-winning The Dry by Jane Harper . . . A gripping crime novel that moves between two narratives at a terrific clip, populated by vivid characters, with more twists along the way than you can shake a stick at. Crime fiction at its best * Vaseem Khan *
A fantastic read. Atmospheric, beautifully written, with strong characters and with a really compelling mystery that made it incredibly hard to put down when I really needed sleep! A real triumph * Gytha Lodge *
End of Summer is captivating from beginning to end, an evocative story of family secrets set in the broad open landscapes of southern Sweden - prepare to fall in love with Scandinavian fiction all over again * Kevin Wignall, author of A Death in Sweden *
Each layer of this story reveals itself like the tilling of the soil with a brooding threat of summer rain close at hand. End of Summer is a delectable slice of unmissable rural noir where a dark harvest blossoms from the seeds of a terrible past * Matt Wesolowski *
Anders de la Motte is considered one of Sweden's top crime writers and this atmospheric tale set in southern Sweden amply illustrates why. This is Nordic Noir at its best - the sense of place is stunning. A gripping tale of family secrets that is ingeniously told - leaving you wanting more * David Young *
A gripping and satisfying read ... if you like your Scandis with a strong sense of place and community, then this one is for you -- Viv Beeby * Crime Review *
