Deon Meyer levererar ännu en gång en spänningsladdad bok med Benny Griessel i huvudrollen. Imponerande hur han gång på gång kan skapa intriger som gör det svårt att lägga ifrån sig boken. Den sydafrikanska miljön ger hans böcker en lite annorlunda ton, den här gången också med politiska undertoner. Deon Meyer delar nu förstaplatsen på min favoritlista med Michael Connelly, något som jag tidigare bedömt som osannolikt.

Deon Meyer's gritty crime novels [are] part police procedural, part political thriller . . . What makes Meyer such a national treasure - and as good as anyone in the world - is that even if you have no knowledge or interest in South Africa's history or present, his books are compelling page-turners. Politics and race are just part of the intricately crafted superstructure bolted onto the rock-solid chassis of a top-quality crime thriller, driven by a writer with deceptive skill. * <i>Books Live</i> (South Africa) * Tells a cracking story and captures the criminal kaleidoscope of a nation. * <i>Times Literary Supplement</i> * Deon Meyer is a top notch plotter and has created one of the best ensemble (and multi-racial) casts of any modern police procedural series. * <i>Shots</i> magazine * Benny is the central character in South African writer Deon Meyer's series of novels, set in Capetown, that grow richer and more sophisticated with each new book. This progression makes COBRA the most dazzling of the bunch. * Toronto Star * The narrative is well-plotted, and the novel brings to life the rich and volatile diversity of contemporary South Africa. There's nothing flashy here, just a good story, very well told. Would there were more like it. * <i>Spectator</i> * Crime fiction with real texture and intelligence. * <i>Independent</i> * Praise for Deon Meyer * . . . *
