Rave Reviews for Malin Persson Giolito’s New Novel

Malin Persson Giolito’s new novel Deliver Me was published a few days ago. The first reviews are in and they are splendid. Here are two excerpts:

“Now that Malin Persson Giolito has a new suspense novel out it is hard to shake the high expectations – surely for the author, but also for the reader. As you open Deliver Me your bodily memory anticipates an immediate gut-punch. If it comes? Perhaps not on the very first page, but shortly thereafter. Perhaps not in the way you expected, but definitely just as forceful.  […] Persson Giolito has crafted a community that feels and burns […] Every character is a skillfully and carefully depicted person with an important role to play, but Dogge is the one that leaves the greatest impression. It is physically painful to follow him and his desperate attempts at impressing his friend, his dad, or – tragically enough- himself. […] While the read is a punch to the gut, it is also a dense suspense novel, and it is absolutely impossible to put down.”

“There are books whose strength you just can’t hide from. This is such a book. It is about children who kill children. The depiction of what happens to the people in a community when gang violence takes over is written with relentless acuity. A story about two boys who meet as six-year-olds and their descent into criminality. This book holds the same high level as her award-winning courtroom drama Quicksand.”
