Great reviews for Åke Edwardson
Annie Peters, San Francisco Book Review, gives praise to The Shadow Woman: A Chief Inspector Erik Winter Novel (original title, Rop från Långt avstånd).
Once in a great while, I come across a writer whose work is so compelling that I have to work hard to suppress the impulse to immediately buy more of the author’s works on completing my current read. I’m delighted to write that Swedish author Ake Edwardson produces exactly this effect with The Shadow Woman.
Edwardson takes the reader on a truly suspenseful ride through a progressively complicated plot revealing the racial tensions and gang violence rife in Swedish society during the Nineties. Add to that just a faint hint of the supernatural, and The Shadow Woman becomes increasingly difficult to put down."
