Recensioner i media

'Full of subtly menacing tensions and sharp psychological insights, told in lean, sparsely ornamented style. This one is a must for the discerning reader.' - Kirkus Long established in Japan, [Togawas] books have benefited from sensitive translation to enjoy a well-deserved second life. Daily Mail 'The PD James of Japan.' - Times Literary Supplement There's a great and distinct timbre to this book it certainly has the cleverness ultimately to keep a genre reader really satisfied. The Bookbag "Even when you think you know just where the book is headed you dont Thoroughly enjoyable." Davids Book World
