"Classy Norwegian thriller, in which journalist Henning Juul and his ex-wife (awful backstory) try to find a wealthy woman who disappeared after saying she was travelling to an Italian retreat. The trail leads to some very nasty places in this deep and complex book. Satisfyingly tense and dark." - SundayTimes Crime Club
"Deep Down Dead
is an impressive thriller, the kind of book that comfortably sits alongside seasoned pros at the top of their game. Sultry and suspenseful, it marks a welcome first vow for an exceptional new voice." --Good Reading Magazine
"Suspenseful, dark, and gritty, this is a must-read." --Booklist
"Suspenseful, dark, and gritty, this is a must-read." - Booklist
"A gripping narrative that begs comparison to Stieg Larsson." --Bookpage
