Finnish crime maestro Antti Tuomainen is unique in the Scandi-crime genre, infusing his crime narratives with the darkest humour … often hilarious, chaotic narrative never vitiates the novel’s nicely tuned tensionThe Financial Times
Charming, funny and clever, this is a novel to cheer up anyone who is finding life a little tough – Literary Review
A thriller with black comedy worthy of Nabokov – The Daily Telegraph
