Washington Times on Midwinter Blood: ''Vividly and harshly''

27 August 12

This weekend I visited Edinburgh International Book Festival where I talked about my first books translated into English: Midwinter Sacrifice and Summertime Death. Read an interview with me from the festival here!

In the USA my first book about Malin Fors is called Midwinter Blood. This friday it got a great review in Washington Times:

"Mr. Kallentoft writes vividly and harshly. There are few moments of gentleness or warmth in the world he creates because his is a world of misery that makes Fors‘ frequent bouts of depression understandable. She is good at her work, but there is no suggestion that she enjoys it. When she isn’t embroiled in crime, she is nostalgic about her separation from her husband.
   Malin Fors‘ dark progress has now been tracked through several books, and the author has certainly carved for her and for himself a trail of bloody footprints in the snow."
