Editorial Reviews

Review

“[A] breakout novel . . . peddling high-concept stories [with a] compelling voice.”
—Lucy Feldman, The Wall Street Journal
 
“Horrors abound in the pseudonymous Sund’s scathing first that rips asunder the appearance of Sweden’s contemporary welfare state to reveal just about every conceivable human crime. . . . [A] challenging multifaceted descent into the abyss of evil and madness.”
Publisher’s Weekly
 
“A breakneck journey through a plot of labyrinthine complexity. . . . Sund boldly places dissociative identity disorder at the heart of this extremely disturbing novel.”
—Joan Smith, The Sunday Times (London)
 
“Brutal, upsetting and brilliantly written, it is the best crime novel of the year so far . . . The joint authors . . . rage against misogyny and sexism. They decry child abuse and human trafficking. And, perhaps most importantly, they tell a brilliant story. . . . This novel is dark—jet-black dark . . . the authors’ biggest triumph, however, is to make 750 pages whizz past . . . terse, direct and compelling.”
The Metro (London)

“The Swedish crime thriller tipped to make a killing . . . follows in the footsteps of Stieg Larsson and Henning Mankell.”
—Mark Lawson, The Guardian
 
“Dark, powerful, disturbing and creepy.”
—Marcel Berlins, The Times (London)
 
“It’s so determinedly and dementedly dark that it makes Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy seem like Midsomer Murders. . . . There is so much action in its 768 pages . . . ridiculously entertaining . . . such a compulsive page-turner.”
—Matt Thorne, Sunday Express
 
“The next big thing . . . thoughtful . . . The Crow Girl is a pulse-pounding thriller. . . . With its heady mix of graphic violence, noirish thrills and social commentary, the book has all the hallmarks of Nordic noir and is a must-read for Scandinavian crime fiction enthusiasts. . . . An ambitious book . . . combining the thriller credentials of Jo Nesbø with the deep psychological turmoil of Karin Alvtegen. . . . A landmark achievement for its authors. It will definitely turn heads worldwide as a darkly delightful must-read.”
—Jeremy Megraw, Crime Fiction Lover
 
“Skillfully escalating suspense keeps you hooked through its 760-pages. This novel proves that what frightens us most are not acts of violence, but quiet horrors of the human psyche.”
—Press Association
 
“Goodbye, Hannibal Lecter. That old cannibal is as psychologically interesting as a pet canary in comparison to Victoria Bergman.”
Arbetarbladet (Sweden)
 
“[An] insanely creepy psycho-thriller that places the thin veneer of normality under the microscope.”
Elle (Denmark)
 
“[The Crow Girl] is among the best I have read in Swedish in the genre. Perhaps even the best. . . . I wouldn’t be surprised if future writers will refer to this work in the same way in which so many Swedish and foreign writers always refer to Sjöwall & Wahlöö as their major source of inspiration.”
Gefle Dagblad (Sweden)
 
“A profoundly frightening novel, a dark fairy tale that stands out in the Scandinavian crime fiction tradition. . . . This novel is a psychological noir that analyzes the human soul and digs deeply into human vices, repressed, subconscious perversions, and the inherent violence of the human nature.”
—Sololibri.net (Italy)
 
“A conclusion in which one elegantly gathers all the strings and unsolved issues . . . The truth is ruthless and so evil that I couldn’t have guessed it even in my wildest imagination . . . Erik Axl Sund have written a [novel] that readers of crime fiction cannot do without.”
Krimifan (Denmark)
 
“[The Crow Girl] makes you breathless and confused as you chase across the pages, eager to find out more. It is a story that takes place in what Jung calls the collective unconscious . . . [An] insidiously shimmering masterpiece.”
DAST Magazine (Sweden)
