"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Praise for Erik Axl Sund's The Crow Girl
“Unfolds in kaleidoscopic fashion. . . . Fired up by moral concerns, this book’s engine never stops humming.” —Chicago Tribune
“The most disturbing book you’ll read all year. . . . There’s a fantastic twist in store.” —The Guardian
“What is it about Sweden that produces such deliciously, darkly off-kilter thrillers, featuring idiosyncratic, complex characters such as Lisbeth Salander and now Detective Superintendent Jeanette Kihlberg? As Kihlberg investigates a killer who targets immigrant children, she must deal with xenophobia, extreme right-wing politics, and other hot-button issues that only deepen our morbid fascination.”
—O, The Oprah Magazine
“You will find [The Crow Girl] to be among the most wide-ranging and forceful Scandinavian crime novels you have encountered. . . . Complex and very dark.” —Financial Times
“A huge book and a landmark achievement for its authors. . . . A darkly delightful must-read.” —Crime Fiction Lover
“Bold, addictive, and timely.” —Chicago Review of Books
“Engrossing. . . . This disturbingly fascinating look at revenge, abuse, and the impact of childhood on adult choices is not for the faint of heart, but it is highly recommended for those [who] appreciate dark, psychological mysteries.” —Library Journal
“A breakneck journey through a plot of labyrinthine complexity. . . . Sund boldly places dissociative identity disorder at the heart of this extremely disturbing novel.” —The Times (London)
“Probing. . . . Full of chills. . . . A smart, rewarding psychological thriller.” —Kirkus Reviews
“The Swedish crime thriller tipped to make a killing. . . . Follows in the footsteps of Stieg Larsson and Henning Mankell.” —The Guardian
“Horrors abound in the pseudonymous Sund’s scathing first book that rips asunder the appearance of Sweden’s contemporary welfare state. . . . [A] challenging multifaceted descent into the abyss of evil and madness.” —Publishers Weekly
“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 seven hundred fifty pages whizz past. . . . Terse, direct, and compelling.” —Metro (London)
