«A powerful, angry work»

Mail on Sunday

«Superb... Over it hangs a Graham Greene-like atmosphere of human wretchedness and compromised political faith»

Sunday Telegraph, *****

«A thrilling page-turner but equally a shattering family drama and an unsparing deconstruction of history... Oksanen is a serious novelist in all ways»

Independent

«Betrayal, secrecy and memory are the haunting themes of Oksanen's accomplished novel... Her insights and intuition mean that she is fast becoming one of the foremost voices in the ex-communist world»
