About the Author

Victoria Kielland's first book, the 2013 short prose collection I Lyngen (In the Heather) was shortlisted for the Tarjei Vesaas debutant prize. In 2016, Kielland's first novel Dammyr (Marsh Pond) was shortlisted for the Youth Critics' Prize and the literary committee of the Norwegian Authors' Union awarded her the Norwegian Booksellers' primary writer's scholarship. My Men is her breakthrough novel, published to rave reviews in Norway in 2021, as well as a huge international success with more foreign sales.

Reviews

"My Men, superbly translated by Damion Searls, is a portrait of a woman trying, and failing, to escape her punishing trajectory. Bit by bit, day by day, we see, and come to understand, what has made Belle Gunness a killer."
--Sarah Weinman, The New York Times Book Review

"This fascinating, off-kilter novel about a female serial killer is an unexpectedly thrilling read."
--Karl Ove Knausgård, author of My Struggle and The Morning Star

"Kielland's dense, lyrical novel offers both insight and opacity . . . Despite the subject matter, this novel is not your typical thriller. The language, in Searls' translation, is dense, poetic, and deeply figurative."
--Kirkus Reviews
