Recensioner i media

'Wonderful novella...he captures the intense cold beautifully' Daily Telegraph 'A compact and compelling novel by an iconic Norwegian writer...[and] thanks to Don Bartlett and Don Shaw's crisp translation, we see it obliquely' Boyd Tonkin, Independent A strange, impressively understated novel ... a daunting, traditional narrative which asserts itself from page one and, like the winter cold, refuses to relax its hold. Irish Times 'Jacobsen excels in his portrait of what it means to be an outsider' Anita Sethi, Independent Jacobsen is a gifted writer, stylish, laconic and imaginative, and he is well served by his translators, Don Bartlett and Don Shaw ... a powerful and well-written account of an unfamilliar episode in the Second World War. TLS 'An inventive wordsmith and a great storyteller, [Jacobsen] never sacrifices substance for style. His research is meticulous; he knows when to hold back and let the unspoken speak for itself, the hallmark of an author so familiar with his subject that he knows precisely where to let the reader fill in the gaps. As he often places his characters in the midst of historical events and social change, the reader feels more emotionally involved than a mere observer would: The Burnt-Out Town of Miracles is a gem of a novel. Independent 'The perfect Christmas one-sitting novel' Bath Life 'A strange, understated and compelling tale' Northern Echo 'This deceptively simple novel is multi-layered and fascinating' Shropshire Star 'Atmospheric novel' Source Magazine
