Reviews

Enthralling, pacey, and intricately plotted, "The Hanging "kept me on the edge of my seat and illuminated a dark corner of Danish society.--Denise Hamilton, Edgar finalist, nationally bestselling author and editor of LOS ANGELES NOIR

Outstanding crime thriller. Everything works in this dark Scandinavian procedural--the intelligent and complex plot, the fallible lead, and the atmospheric prose. "Publishers Weekly"

The Hammers have struck a chord with European readers, and "The Hanging" is seen as Denmark's answer to successful Swedish, Norwegian, and Icelandic crime fiction. U.S. crime lovers will likely want to stick a pin in Denmark on their crime-fiction maps. "Booklist""

"Several factors elevate "The Girl in the Ice "above the run-of-the-mill police-procedural maniac-murderer hunt . . . Cultural and personal wisdom . . . permeates the book." "The Wall Street Journal"

"Intriguing . . . ["The Girl in the Ice"] will cause you to put this series on your must-read list if it isn t there already . . . The characters, particularly the physically damaged and emotionally fragile Simonsen, are worth staying for and anticipating future installments of the series, which hopefully we will see sooner rather than later."
