Praise for Helene Tursten
andHunting Game

‘As good as Louise Welsh’s similarly creepy tour of Glasgow.’

‘Embla is a winning new Scandinavian noir lead.’

‘These days Scandinavian crime writers are thick on the ground. It’s nice to see that the women can be just as bloodthirsty as the men.’

‘[An] outstanding series launch…Embla is a refreshingly capable lead, whose situational ethics means that she doesn’t feel she must do everything by the book.’

‘Very atmospheric’
