Deon Meyer har snabbt intagit en plats bland mina absoluta favoriter när det gäller kriminalromaner. Hans fyra huvudpersoner som han omväxlande låter inta huvudrollen tar man snabbt till sitt hjärta trots deras brister och tillkortakommanden. Den Sydafrikanska miljön är ytterligare en plusfaktor.
Denna hans första kriminalroman kan väl mäta sig med hans övriga. Två parallella utredningar som man får följa med tilltagande intresse och som i det ena fallet leder till ett överraskande slut,... Läs hela recensionen

I really enjoyed DEAD BEFORE DYING. I liked the complexity of the main character, the interactions between the detectives, and their dogged determination to find both the robber and the serial murderer . . . A sad, tense denouement ends the book, with an unexpected twist. I'd highly recommend this book. I've enjoyed all the Deon Meyer books I've read so far, and this one is no exception. * <i>Eurocrime</i> * An impressively tangled web and taut narrative keeps the reader guessing until the last couple of pages. * <i>Heat</i> * The atmosphere of a hot, turbulent country is very vividly evoked, and the characterisation is dynamic . . . A striking debut novel. * <i>Crime Time</i> * A plot-driven page-turner . . . Joubert is a haunted yet sympathetic protagonist. * <i>Bookpage</i> * Meyer subtly juxtaposes the heartbreak of the victims' families with the heartbroken detective assigned to their cases. Using humour and pathos in equal measure, Meyer builds a deeply moving portrait of a man in search of his own dignity. * <i>Booklist</i> *
