Editorial Reviews

'Without a doubt , she is one of our best crime writers right now. Or rather, in short, one of the best writers right now' Gunilla Wedding' Norra Skåne"Has all the characteristics of the Scandinavian crime novel - the suspense, the literary quality, the critical view on society - but with a global perspective. The Swedish critics are right: this is an international thriller of the highest standard." Liza Marklund"A complex topic is condensed into this book with great finesse. Nothing is missing and nothing can be added. The balance is perfect. This first novel by Tove Alsterdal is a total success and the translation of her second book is already eagerly awaited." Huffington Post/ Canada"A captivating debut!" Der Standard/Germany"Alsterdal is a gift to crime novel lovers." Søndag"If you are only going to read one Swedish crime novel this summer, read Women On The Beach by Tove Alsterdal." 6 stars out of 6, Berlingske Tidende/Denmark"A thrilling, insightful and very well written story." GöteborgspostenPraise for Tove Alsterdal:"Tove Alsterdal combines deeply poignant family stories with political thriller. The topics never get dull or didactive and she has an instinctive feeling when she writes about people, about love, guilt, loss and reconciliation. She writes with a light pen, and one travels through the story effortlessly. It is so worth every minute of the time it actually takes to read a book. She is the John le Carré of Sweden." Åsa Larsson
