MEDIA REVIEWS
Sweeping, clever, heartbreaking and memorable. The perfect summer read -- Henrietta Richman * Grazia *
Veers between nostalgia for what could have been and regrets for what can never be. Captivating and beautifully conceived -- Pascale Frey * Elle *

A striking insight into America's weird class system, and a moving
story of brotherhood and family rivalry

-- Melissa Katsoulis * The Times *
A literary phenomenon -- Astrid de Larminat * Figaro *
Once again, Dicker brilliantly combines all the elements that first enticed his legions of readers -- Julie Malaure * Le Point *
Immense and detailed . . . The backstory is all-consuming and will not let you skip a single paragraph -- Rachael Revesz * Independent *
Joel Dicker really knows how to tell a great story -- Stephanie des Horts * Valeurs Actuelles *
The Dicker who wrote The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair was a magician, a juggler. The Dicker of The Baltimore Boys has no need of such tricks. He is not just a good writer, he is a great writer -- Antonio d'Orrico * Corriere della Serra *
A titan of a novel. Nabokovian. Highly recommended -- Laura Fernandez * El Cultural de El Mundo *
A new masterstroke from Joel Dicker. The ace up his sleeve -- Pierre-Yves Grenu * Culturebox *
My goodness, this Joel Dicker can really spin a yarn -- Marianne Grosjean * Tribune de Geneve *

An expertly realised, addictive Russian doll of a whodunit -- Fanny Blake * Daily Mail on The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair *
The book of the year * Simon Mayo on The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair *
