Editorial Reviews

Review

"The godfather of Scandinavian crime fiction" -- Jo Nesbo "A vigorous and powerful mind...there is no doubt about the originality of his talent" Sunday Times "[Sarah Death's translation] seems to catch the bleakness perfectly... Wahloo's solo work deserves to be considered in the same context as Zamyatin, Capek, Orwell, or Durrenmatt...high praise indeed" -- Michael Carlson Irresistible Targets "They are economical and move with great pace... Two unique novels have been restored to the canon of European crime fiction in English. Don't miss." -- Bob Cornwell Crime Time "The premise is intriguing... The themes are topical" Independent on Sunday --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

0 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Erehwon on July 16, 2013
Format: Paperback
This book was published in 1968 and does a credible job combining the sparse prose style of the existential Nordic crime novel with a bleak dystopian storyline. However, the author is no Orwell and the ending is a sophomoric triumph of socialism. At age 42 or so, the author should have been able to restrain himself and come up with a more convincing and satisfactory conclusion.

This is Per Wahlöös best book. Almost science fiction. Very exiting and well written.
