For readers who just can't get enough of Scandinavian crime fiction, this book should definitely be on your fall reading list. The cast is superb, the story full of vivid suspense, and the writing immaculate. The supernatural is present here, but it works harmoniously with the plot rather than taking the lead role. A fabulous read for chilly fall nights. You won't be able to put it down, I promise!
“Stunning . . . As doom-filled as Larsson’s leitmotif of ravens (in old Scandinavia the messengers of Odin, the god of poetry and berserker fury), this remarkable tale of twisted love and vengeance and redemptive nonjudgmental devotion resounds, like its epitaph from the Book of Job, with all the pain of human existence.” —Publishers Weekly (STARRED REVIEW)
“Larrson’s best book so far. The supernatural elements are worked seamlessly into a complex and engaging mystery, resulting in a thoroughly compelling reading experience.” —Booklist (Starred Review)
