MENY

9. Afterquake

The following is a selection of reviews of Afterquake (Original title: Efterskalv):

 

"In Dahl’s case, this step definitely carries him up into the international elite league of the crime novel.Afterquake is without a doubt his best novel to date, a chef d’oeuvre sporting complexity of plot and vivacious diction all the way to the spectacular final scene in the maze-like Holocaust monument in Berlin."
Expressen (Sweden)


"Dahl continues to impress /…/ the series’ most infernally suspenseful book."
Svenska Dagbladet (Sweden)


"There is something about Arne Dahl’s cheerfulness that is so contagious that you give in, whole-heartedly. /…/ A genius crime writer whose quirky sense of humor is such that I find myself laughing out loud time and time again."
Dagens Nyheter (Sweden)


"The portrayal of the ten-headed Intercrime team could make any hardened and asocial loner of an individualist to sob and long for a workplace. The beautiful moral message reads: no one is a hero on his own, together we can fight the evil."
Aftonbladet (Sweden)


"It is action driven and suspenseful the entire way, Dahl has time to time to explore the psychological depths of his characters, it is a novel of 400 pages that you finish in a jiffy."
Göteborgs-Posten (Sweden)

 

"Jan Arnald/Arne Dahl has an unfailing sharp nose for red-hot topics of our time and a thought-provoking ability to connect these with the criminal world, often with directly or indirectly grounded social criticism making up the foundation of the mood establishing elements, ingeniously woven around tricky cases."
Nerikes Allehanda (Sweden)


"Arne is back, obviously in splendid shape, in book number nine."
Helsingborgs Dagblad (Sweden)


"Dahl has bit by bit increased the pace in his novels – keep in mind he started off with full charge ahead – andAfterquake is the most thrilling in the series so far."
Östersunds-Posten (Sweden)


"Today Arne Dahl is a crime writer of international quality. And Afterquake is most likely the very sharpest I’ve read in the genre, in any case judging by Swedish standards."
Borås Tidning (Sweden)


"It is so good it forces you into a reading frenzy."
Barometern (Sweden)

 

"Also Afterquake is very well-written and thought through."
Sundsvalls Tidning (Sweden)

"Arne Dahl writes swiftly and with good flow, alternates between the different individual perspectives with an unerring feel for drama. Lets everyone speak their mind, even the terrorist. This provides an unusual flow and tempo in the narrative."
Tidningen Ångermanland (Sweden)

"Dahl can build up suspense. This he demonstrates in a virtuoso manner. And he is not dependent on spectacular ghastliness in order to do this."
Falu-Kuriren (Sweden)

"As a reader, you feel that you are in the hands of an author who knows exactly what he is doing… The most interesting thing about the book is that it does not rub you the right way."
Katrineholms-Kuriren (Sweden)

"In fear of jumping to simplified conclusions, he makes use of so many points of view that it almost takes a second reading in order for everything he wants to have said to sink in. But Afterquake is well worth it. In its genre, it occupies a space in the top layer."
Kristianstadsbladet (Sweden)

 

"It doesn’t get more sublime than this."
Fyens Stiftstidende (Denmark)


"Another terribly good crime novel from Arne Dahl."
Dagbladenes Bureau (Denmark)


"Insanely suspenseful plot… [Dahl’s] writing makes the angels sing."
Weekendavisen (Denmark)


"A plot and cast of characters that is outstanding, annoyingly well set up and cleverly executed…sensational and different."
Politiken (Denmark)

 

"Dahls Spurendickicht scheint oft undurchdringlich, aber wie ein guter Lotse bugsiert der Autor den Leser dabei schrittweise zu neuen Sichten. Und zu einem beklemmenden mehrteiligen Showdown, der weder befreit noch erlöst. Ein komplexes Gesellschaftspanorama mit erschreckenden Einblicken in finstere seelische Abgründe. Wieder mit vielen Handlungssträngen, die parallel verlaufen, sich kreuzen oder nur berühren, um am Ende überraschend, aber logisch zusammengeführt zu werden. Reibende Krimispannung, ohne das brisante und sensible Thema zur Schlagzeile verhungern zu lassen. Berührend, wie plastisch, präzise und warmherzig der Autor das vielschichtig miteinander verbundene Figurenteam charakterisiert."
Dresdner Neueste Nachrichten (Germany)

 

"›Dunkelziffer‹ ist ein Volltreffer, weil Dahl von Beginn an auf mehreren Klaviaturen spielt, und damit seine Leser auf höchst nachdrückliche Weise fesselt ... Das Buch macht nachdenklich, man hält mehrfach inne und reflektiert den Inhalt. Und dennoch bleibt es ein hochspannender Thriller, von dem man sich nur wünschen kann, dass er komplette Fiktion ist."
krimi-couch.de (Germany)

 

"Ein brisanter, raffiniert konstruierter Krimi, der gekonnt immer wieder in die Irre führt und in einem furiosen Finale endet."
Münchner Merkur (Germany)

 

"In 37 Kapiteln auf 416 Seiten entfacht Dahl ein faszinierendes Fegefeuer an Spannung, Spaß und Scharfsinn und rechtfertigt seinen Ruf als renommierter Autor, der absolut zu Recht 2005 und 2006 den Deutschen Krimipreis erhielt."
Mannheimer Morgen (Germany)
