What Critics Have Said»

'Kjell Eriksson's 'Black Lies, Red Blood' has a direct and unadorned quality in the writing and it's a thriller which has a more intriguingly elusive quality than most Nordic crime fare'., Nordic Noir & Beyond

'‘Black Lies, Red Blood' is the latest in your essential reading’.Euro Crime Blog

'The gifted Kjell Eriksson, who won the Swedish Crime Academy Award for Best Crime Novel, is a distinctive and unusual talent. There is a direct and unadorned quality to his prose (as rendered in a highly professional translation) that is somewhat deceptive; beneath the straightforwardly rendered narrative, there is a profound poetic sensibility here-unforced and unobtrusive, certainly, but granting Black Lies, Red Blood a more elusive quality than most Nordic crime fiction.'The Good Book Guide
