“Unseen has everything we have come to expect from a great Swedish crime novel--- graceful prose, deft characterization, and a setting that is somehow both familiar and strange, like a kind of dream-world. But what makes this first novel unique is its author’s ability to write with a bird’s-eye view about horrible events while at the same time maintaining a poet’s sense of intimacy about what her characters think and feel. Possessing such skills as these---scope and heart, a desire to get to the truth---makes Mari Jungstedt the new writer to watch.”
---Daniel Judson, Shamus Award winner and author of The Darkest Place
"A remarkable debut."
"Tense, psychologically credible crime fiction that boasts both a concise plot and sympathetic and complex characters."
