Product description


"A bold and intelligent read." -- The Guardian

"There are two reasons for praising Block 46 , the first novel by the French author Johana Gustawsson. It has a strong plot, starting with similar killings on Hampstead Heath and in Sweden. They become linked with horrifying events in Buchenwald concentration camp in 1944. Perhaps as importantly, the frim detection is carried out by two strong women. Emily Roy is a profiler, lent to Scotland Yard by the Canadian Mounties; her friend Alexis Castells is a French writer of true-crime. They made a terrific, original duo. They have a future." -- The Times

"[This] prizewinning novel is the first in a series featuring a true-crime author and a Canadian profiler." -- The Sunday Times

"Block 46 is dark, oppressive and bloody but it's also thought-provoking, compelling and very moving." --The Metro

"Multi-layered, superbly plotted, brimming with mystery, tension and bone-chilling violence, and with two very different - but equally fascinating - lead female characters, Block 46 is not for the squeamish or faint-hearted... Disturbing, moving and utterly mesmerising, this is a book that has the power to shock and the artistry to impress long after the last page has turned." -- Lancashire Post

"Harrowing, ambitious, and downright chilling. Block 46 is not for the faint of heart and not to be missed." -- Crime by the Book

"Compelling." --Women's Own

"A real page-turner... I loved it!" -- Martina Cole,

"A great serial-killer thriller with a nice twist ... first rate." -- James Oswald

"A bold and audacious debut from a very talented writer. Heralds the beginning of a thrilling new series." -- R J Ellory

"Cleverly plotted, simply excellent..." -- Ragnar Jónasson

"Viscerally brutal yet delicately beautiful, like blood spatter on fresh snow. An unbelievable debut." -- Matt Wesolowski

"Gripping ... utterly mesmerizing." --Thomas Enger
