Set in Denmark in the here and now, The Quiet Girl centres around Kaspar Krone, a world-renowned circus clown with a deep love for the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, and an even deeper gambling debt. Wanted for tax evasion and on the verge of extradition, Krone is drafted into the service of a mysterious order of nuns who promise him reprieve from the international authorities in return for his help safeguarding a group of children with mystical abilities. When one of the children goes missing a year later, Krone sets off to find the young girl and bring her back, making a shocking series of discoveries along the way about her identity and the true intentions of his young wards.

Recensioner i media

"Superb new novel...At once intricate and explosive, The Quiet Girl is elegantly written and furiously plotted, resonant (though not acoustically) of Philip Pullman's Dark Materials trilogy and also David Mamet's elaborately staged deceptions" * Independent on Sunday * "In Hoeg's hallucinatory prose, Copenhagen has a sinister near-future feel... there are also passages of lyrical beauty" * Financial Times * "Striking and deeply felt... confirms that Hoeg is a writer determined to make new footprints in the snow" -- Mark Lawson * Guardian * "He writes entertainingly, at times lyrically, at times scathingly" * Scotland on Sunday * "The Quiet Girl has Hoeg's best-selling hallmarks - including an off-kilter hero in the shape of Kasper Krone, a world-famous clown with a penchant for poker and mysticism" * Daily Mail *
