"'Meet Finland's answer to Philip Roth. Kjell Westo's stunning new novel, translated by Ebba Segerberg, lends a thrillerish touch to the mid-life crisis.'" (Independent)
"Part thriller, part love story, LANG has an intense, charged mood that sucks you in. This is a captivating book with about love, hatred and obsession with a criticism of media society that really hits the mark."

Dr. F. M. A. Jones
bleakReviewed in the United Kingdom on 20 December 2007
Lang allows himself to get stuck in a situation and the results are horrible. His sort of friend tells the story from what Lang has said and written to him in letters. We may wonder how differently Lang would have told it himself, and in particular we may wonder about the degree of complicity of the woman he loves. Tense, gripping, and leaving an appropriate degree of mystery over human motivation and the ability of others to understand what is going on. This book is a real gem.
