About the Author

Peter Høeg, born in 1957 in Denmark, pursued various interests--dancer, actor, sailor, fencer, and mountaineer--before turning seriously to writing. His work has been published in 33 countries. His novels include the bestselling The Quiet Girl and Borderliners, and the award-winning Smilla's Sense of Snow. "Høeg writes prose that is both changeable and as deep-fathomed as poetry...[It] demands to be read aloud and savored."--The New Yorker on Smilla's Sense of Snow.

Reviews

"Splendid entertainment . . . the suspense novel as exploration of the heart." --The New York Times Book Review

"A book of profound intelligence . . . In the league of Melville or Conrad. Hoeg writes prose that is as bitter, changeable and deep-fathomed as poetry. . . . Demands to be read aloud and savored." --The New Yorker

"Like John le Carré and Graham Greene before him, Peter Høeg has given a thriller moral and political resonance." --Los Angeles Times

"A considerable achievement, a riveting suspense tale." --The Wall Street Journal
