Presentationen av boken gjorde mig tveksam men samtidigt nyfiken. Skulle en roman av Deon Meyer som var helt annorlunda än hans tidigare polisromaner hålla samma höga kvalitet? Efter de 530 sidorna kan jag konstatera att den var en besvikelse.Otaliga beskrivningar av ointressanta människoöden, geografiska förhållanden och befintliga vägnät samt allmän "pratighet" gjorde att man aldrig fängslades av boken.
Upplösningen kändes heller inte särskilt trovärdig eller övertygande.
Återvänd till polisromanerna Deon Meyer!

Recensioner i media
Tells a cracking story and captures the criminal kaleidoscope of a nation. * Times Literary Supplement * Crime fiction with real texture and intelligence. * Independent * 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. * Shots magazine * 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. * Spectator * Praise for Deon Meyer * - * Meyer justifies at every point the book's daunting length * Financial Times * Deon Meyer should be applauded for this brutal, unflinching tale of the excesses of humanity coiled like a python around a coming-of-age tale; one that makes one think deeply about the human condition as it entertains as well as warns of the dangers ahead...Miss this insightful thriller at your peril, because as crime thrillers go, this is the big summer read of 2017. * Shotsmag * Moving and gripping. * South China Morning Post * Compelling, action-packed and fraught with emotion. At its heart it is a powerful exploration of humanity at its best and worst and bears favourable comparison with landmarks of the genre such as Stephen King's The Stand and Cormac McCarthy's The Road. Simply stunning. * Daily Express * FEVER is one of the best books of the year. Deon Meyer is a masterful writer and has created a stunning epic that brims with emotion. The mystery, thrills, and action kept me riveted to every page. Highly recommended. -- Adam Hamdy, author of Pendulum FEVER bears comparison with landmarks in the genre such as The Stand...The novel explores humanity at its best and worst; the crushing loss of civilisation with everything that means for the structure of society...This great book asks us to reflect on our own hidden natures - how would we react if the world we knew came to an end tomorrow? -- Vaseem Khan, author of The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra An epic read that has a dystopian feel and makes you ask the question: What if? * Sun * Reminiscent of The Stand and The Passage. Great stuff. -- Stephen King Emotional and atmospheric...There are shades of Cormac McCarthy's superb The Road, but FEVER grips even more. * The Times *
