...A compulsively readable tour de force.
--The Wall Street Journal

New York Times Book Review
recommends M.T. Edvardsson's A Nearly Normal Family and lauds it as a "page-turner" that forces the reader to confront "the compromises we make with ourselves to be the people we believe our beloveds expect."
--New York Times Book Review Summer Reading Issue

--New York Times Book Review Podcast

Edvardsson ably weaves themes of parental guilt and sacrifice into a nuanced family drama.

"An intense legal thriller that successfully plays realistic, gripping emotion against a shocking legal twist."

At its core, A Nearly Normal Family asks: How well do you know your loved ones? Or your best friend? Or anyone? Whom can you trust? Edvardsson doesn't give easy answers, and even throws in commentary about the Swedish legal system when it comes to determining guilt or innocence. But the author raises provocative questions, wraps them up in a propulsive thriller and delivers an ultra-satisfying read that's far from ordinary.
--Shelf Awareness

A NEARLY NORMAL FAMILY is a canny, intensely suspenseful legal thriller. A 18-year-old teenager is accused of murdering a 32-year-old man, provoking a crisis for every person close to her and challenging the commandments of the law as they confront the bonds of love and family life.
--Scott Turow, Author of Presumed Innocent and Testimony

"M. T. Edvardsson has written a deceptive and riveting novel. A NEARLY NORMAL FAMILY will make you question everything you know about those closest to you."
--Karin Slaughter, Author of 18 international bestsellers
