Product description

Review

"If this is a debut novel, it is something of a literary sensation. Even writers with long experience are rarely able to compose their plots with such elegance and in a language so completely free of cliches as Bjork does. . . . With his first book about investigators Mia Kruger and Holger Munch, Bjork has already qualified himself into the mystery writers' elite division. Watch out, Jo Nesbo!" -- Bergens Tidende (Norway)
"An incredibly suspenseful crime novel that captures you from the start." -- Plusbog.dk (Denmark)
"

Icy landscapes, mysterious clues, a messed up heroine . . . Nordic noir at its delicious best.
Sarah Hilary, author of Someone Else s Skin
Tense and smartly constructed.
The Wall Street Journal
harrowing and enthralling
Publisher s Weekly
Nordic writers seem to reach a colder, darker place in their crime fiction than most other writers do, and Bjork exemplifies this in his American debut. A suspenseful, skillfully wrought thriller with the potential for a sequel, this is a thoroughly chilling and an excellent read-alike for Jo Nesbo fans.
Booklist, Starred Review

Children stolen and dressed like dolls before they re murdered bring suicidal detective Mia Kruger out of hiding and back to police work in Bjork s complicated, yet compelling, tale good solid reading. Bjork constructs a plot like a jigsaw puzzle with many pieces, and somehow it all works.
Kirkus Reviews
A breath of fresh air in the crowded Scandinavian crime genre, this suspenseful novel will hook readers early and keep them on the edge of their seat until the final pages. Fans of Jo Nesbo are sure to enjoy the flawed yet likable characters.
Library Journal, Starred Review

Samuel Bjork s formidable I M TRAVELING ALONE is despatched with real elan . . . Mia s confrontation with both her own demons and a very human one is mesmerising fare.
