Praise for the Viper
"A future classic of crime fiction.”
Stephen Booth, author of The Devil’s Edge
"An engrossing thriller [that] upholds the Scandinavian literary tradition of using crime to peek into deep-rooted social malaises."
"Combining the viewpoints of police and local residents gives Ostlundh’s first crime novel to appear in English an extra level of interest. This latest Swedish import is sure to please fans of Asa Larsson and Johan Theorin."
All in all, it’s a solid crime novel, perfect for those who love the new style of Scandinavian mystery writers.
Östlundh's writing is both rich and mind-bending…a great Scandinavian crime writer who goes beyond just the crime in his book.
