Blaze Me a Sun Named One of the Best Mystery and Thriller Novels of 2023
The US edition of Christoffer Carlsson’s critically acclaimed novel, Blaze Me a Sun, has been named one of the best mystery and thriller novels of 2023 by Kirkus Reviews. Here is what they had to say about it:
“The plot unfolds slowly but masterfully, with serial surprises. But what makes Carlsson’s American debut so impressive is its close examination of ’truth’, the way trauma is passed from one generation to the next, the distractions we create to avoid our contributions to the ’rot’ of our violent age. Pain can be so deep, Carlsson writes, ’maybe it’s not even pain anymore. It’s a way of being.’ A brainy page-turner form a rising star in Scandinavian crime fiction.”
Blaze Me a Sun was published in the US by Hogarth on January 3rd.
