Recensioner i media

"A compulsively readable novel" Iain Pears "A genuine treat, with its sneaky plot and richly textured storytelling. It also moves so fast that readers won't realize how smart it is" San Francisco Chronicle "Codex takes its place on the shelf [with] The Name of the Rose, Possession and A Case of Curiosities, and it's as entertaining as any of them" New York Times "Fabulously entertaining ...

A fabulous double-helix of a novel" Baltimore Sun
