Review quote

'The thriller that's taking Europe by storm...ferocious, visceral storytelling that wraps you in a cloak of darkness. It's stunning.' DAILY MAIL 'One of the best - if not the best - Scandinavian crime thrillers I've read.' RED 'All the hallmarks of a classic...a brutal crime, a missing child and an irresistible detective. this is crime writing at its most devilishly involving.' MARIE CLAIRE 'If the post-Stieg Larsson boom was ebbing, Kepler promises to revitalise the genre by bringing a sulphurous whiff of Hannibal Lecter to this case.' FINANCIAL TIMES 'A genuine chiller...commanding and deeply scarifying stuff.' INDEPENDENTshow more
