"Nesbø doesn't spend any time fiddling about, building up, or misdirecting. In The Night House, the horror begins immediately. And it only keeps calling from there. There are lessons to be learned here: who to believe and what to believe in. And how a person can change, when the impossible turns possible and the unimaginable is laid bare. This horror fan loved it."
--Josh Malerman, New York Times best-selling author of Bird Box and Spin a Black Yarn

"Nesbø deftly guides readers on a journey much larger than many will expect from the slim volume . . . Expectations of genre, setting, and mood are subverted as a simple horror novel unfolds into a story that encompasses grief, mid-life crises, and more."
--Library Journal

"Scary fun that won't cause nightmares--or will it?"
--Kirkus Reviews

"Wild and ambitious . . . Nesbø shows a sure hand at crafting moments of terror."
--Publishers Weekly

"A fast-paced escape of a book . . . Nesbø skillfully keeps the reader wondering where the story is going to go next and when, if ever, the main character will reach his happy ending--or if, in fact, he deserves to reach one at all."
