Highly recommended." - Bookgasm "an interesting mystery on its own merits. The background of the Faroes is an added bonus, giving it a unique flavor. I definitely recommend it." - The Soap Boxers "A tense thriller....a particularly delightful read for readers who crave for stories similar to those of Henning Mankell and Elizabeth George." - Mystery Tribune "a commanding, almost otherworldly, setting, and the author certainly knows how to bring it to life" Kittling Books "A subtle and satisfying read; absolutely pick this one up for the fascinating weave of multiple storylines and bleak atmosphere - another must-read in a brilliant series" The Crime Review
