This book is as noir as noir gets. From the first word, I was unable to tear myself away from this brilliantly written thriller; each character more original and intriguing than the next. Ekback pulls you into darkness so subtly, you don't even notice the fall--and then suddenly your heart stops. --Ruby Wax, author of A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled In this multi-layered, intense, compelling novel, Cecilia Ekback has created a world filled with secrets and lies--a dangerous, dark place that her characters must somehow negotiate to survive. I loved this intriguing, powerful book. A clever historical twist on Nordic noir. --Saskia Sarginson, author of The Wonderful The Historians is both haunting and beautifully written. It is one of those books that you simply do not want to end, despite the urgency in needing to know how it will conclude. --Yrsa Sigurdardottir, author of The Legacy The Historians blends a fascinating historical intrigue with the quick pace and excitement of a thriller. Cecilia Ekback's talent for storytelling and luminous prose shine in this highly suspenseful novel. --Ellen Keith, author of The Dutch Wife
