Praise for The Viper
"An engrossing thriller [that] upholds the Scandinavian literary tradition of using crime to peek into deep-rooted social malaises."
"Combining the viewpoints of police and local residents gives Ostlundh’s first crime novel to appear in English an extra level of interest. This latest Swedish import is sure to please fans of Asa Larsson and Johan Theorin."
"A future classic of crime fiction.”
--Stephen Booth, author of The Devil’s Edge
"There is no question about the fact that the Swedes have captured the Nordic crime throne and Håkan Östlundh is definitely one of the most interesting authors in the genre... A classic crime story."
"A classic crime novel that touches upon our time and the relationships between the people that our time creates."
