“Splendid entertainment . . . the suspense novel as exploration of the heart.” —The New York Times Book Review
“A book of profound intelligence . . . In the league of Melville or Conrad. Hoeg writes prose that is as bitter, changeable and deep-fathomed as poetry. . . . Demands to be read aloud and savored.” —The New Yorker
“Like John le Carré and Graham Greene before him, Peter Høeg has given a thriller moral and political resonance.” —Los Angeles Times
“A considerable achievement, a riveting suspense tale.” —The Wall Street Journal
