Opinion

From Library Staff

"The murder mystery is dark, the protagonists are damaged and engaging. My most obvious comparison is to Caleb Carr's 'The Alienist,' but I think this is fruitful ground for fans of 'justice in a corrupt environment' mysteries like David Peace or thrillers like Preston and Child."

"A gruesome crime novel set in 1793 Stockholm and is utterly captivating."
