Blaze Me a Sun in Rave Review from The Wall Street Journal

The US edition of Christoffer Carlsson’s critically acclaimed novel Blaze Me a Sun has received a rave review in The Wall Street Journal:

“Swedish author Christoffer Carlsson’s Blaze Me a Sun is billed by its American publisher as ‘a novel about a crime.’ While this riveting work shares many aspects of the traditional police procedural, it also overflows genre boundaries to present the effects of fatal violence on the minds and lives of various characters across several generations /…/ Much of the emotional power of Mr. Carlsson’s book, translated from the Swedish by Rachel Willson-Broyles, comes from the characters’ struggles to find sense in the senseless /…/ a gripping psychological study of the perils of forcing facts into preconceived patterns, and a reminder of how devasting learning the truth can be.”

Blaze Me a Sun was published in the US by Hogarth on January 3rd.
