Roslund / Hellstrom are among the very best crime novelists around. They write with courage and intensity about the important issues of our time. Extraordinarily compelling. [In Ewert Grens] the authors have created an eccentric, alienated, socially inept hero worthy of comparison with Swedish mystery master Henning Mankell's Inspector Kurt Wallander. - Wall Street Journal
