Editorial Reviews

Review

“With its tight, staccato chapters and cast of dangerous wraiths lurking everywhere, The Sandman is a nonstop fright.” —Janet Maslin, The New York Times

"
The Sandman sends us off to dreamland with a nightmare that can make us happy." —The New York Times Book Review

“If Jurek Walter reminds you of Hannibal Lecter, with his ability to impel people to act against their own impulse, you’ll be forgiven.... As with Jurek Walter’s powers of persuasion, I felt impelled by Lars Kepler to finish
The Sandman. The characters got into my head and I couldn’t rest until the mystery was revealed.” —Associated Press 

“Kepler—actually the husband-and-wife team of Alexandra and Alexander Ahndoril—is really good at this stuff. The chapters are short, the characters deftly drawn, and the action churns along.” —
The Washington Post

"[A] marvel: utterly unnerving, bordering on horror, dripping with suspense throughout.” —
Entertainment Weekly

“[A] thrilling crime novel that will keep you awake until you read the final page.” —
Paste Magazine

“This is a book that will keep you up all night, unable to turn off the light, because the pages almost literally fly beneath your fingers....
The Sandman is an excellent crime novel. Alexandra Coehlo Ahndoril and Alexander Ahndoril are a terrific writing team that deserve every accolade they receive. You won’t be able to resist the urge to read all six Joona Linna novels, and you’ll fervently wish there were more.” —New York Journal of Books 

“Thriller fans will find it hard to escape The Sandman's spell, for the suspense is unrelenting and the bite-size chapters end on cliffhangers. But unlike the villain, who makes victims go to sleep, his namesake novel will keep readers up all night.” —Shelf Awareness

“I had been hearing about Lars Kepler’s Joona Linna series of crime novels for years and have finally gotten around to reading them. I had really been missing out.... Do you enjoy getting scared out of your wits? Then I suggest you read
The Sandman.” —Dayton Daily News

“Sensational ... like meeting Hannibal Lecter all over again—twice.” —Lee Child

“Kepler doesn’t pull any punches, and his care in creating characters will make readers deeply invested in their fates.” —
Publishers Weekly (starred review)
 
“If any Scandinavian crime series is poised to top the characterization and gripping action of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series, it’s this one. Kepler has crafted a phenomenal hero in Linna, who wields intuition, strategic genius, and refreshing vulnerability against a foe as compelling and calculating as Hannibal Lecter.” —
Booklist (starred review)
 
“More dark psychological thriller than police procedural, this shiver-inducing read will have you turning pages until the cliff-hanger ending.” —
Library Journal
