'This first novel in a proposed trilogy has terrific characters as well as effectively inventing a new genre, Anglo-Nordic noir' - Joan Smith 'A cracking police procedural set in a richly described isolated island community' - Irish Independent on Fatal Isles 'An excellent police procedural - she does detail brilliantly - but also really thrilling. I love books that send me somewhere completely new and I really enjoyed Doggerland. She captured it perfectly, and held me there for the whole thing' - Jo Spain on Fatal Isles 'Karen Eiken reminds me a bit of Jane Tennison: a strong, feminine and dedicated woman confronted by sexism within the police force while doing her job. At the same time striving not to be eaten up by the pressure of duties, struggling to quit smoking and not drinking too much. The island is a cool setting too, a bit Shetland-like . . . a good debut' - Kjell Ola Dahl on Fatal Isles 'A suspenseful and intriguing story that combines the best of British crime writing tradition with Nordic noir. Doggerland is a unique and alluring universe that I can't wait to revisit' - Camilla Grebe on Fatal Isles
