Publisher Review

A subtle novel, yet direct, clever, wistful, unforgettable - Ruth Rendell, Daily Telegraph Unusual and enveloping. Extraordinarily evocative, atmospheric and poetic - Sunday Times On one level, both a whodunnit and a thriller - ingeniously plotted. Extremely hard to put down. Peter Hoeg's novel is already making for classic status - Independent Read Hoeg's delicious, icy-cool, Scandinavian detective story while sunbathing on a Caribbean beach. We guarantee it will make you shiver. * Independent on Sunday, Greatest Holiday Reads Ever * An Arctic tale worthy of Conrad - New Statesman
