More than gripping. --European Literature Network Skilfully juggling three Oslo timelines -- in 1942, 1967 and 2015 -- Dahl starts his story with Germany's occupation of Norway and the work of those who tried to resist, then brings his characters forward to a post-war unravelling of what really happened in those dangerous days -- and the traumatic rewriting of personal stories. --Times Crime Club 'The Courier is a stylish stand-alone thriller from the godfather of Scandi noir ... Ola Dahl ratchets up the tension from the first pages and never lets go. --Times Superb . . . The translator's stripped-down, muscular prose is a plus. --Publishers Weekly starred review of Faithless Kjell Ola Dahl's novels are superb. If you haven't read one, you need to--right now. --William Ryan, author, Holy Thief If you have never sampled Dahl, now is the time to try. --Daily Mail The perfect example of why Nordic Noir has become such a popular genre. --Reader's Digest A chilling novel about betrayal. --Sunday Times Excellent . . . Fans of Scandinavian noir will be eager for Dahl's next book. --Publishers Weekly starred review of The Ice Swimmer
