"This is the evolution of Scandinavian crime, in more ways than one." --Fredrik Backman, author of A Man Called Ove

"A remarkable new novel...Giolito...writes with exceptional skill...[Quicksand is] always smart and engrossing...Giolito keeps us guessing a long time and the outcome, when it arrives, is just as it should be." --Washington Post

"[Quicksand] provides a razor-sharp view of modern Sweden and its criminal justice system, yet is a tonic for readers who have had enough of the brooding, often-bloody 'Scandi-crime' that has been so popular in recent years." --NPR

"Astonishing...a dark exploration of the crumbling European social order and the psyche of rich Swedish teens...the incisive language that's on display here surely involves translation precision that's second to none." --Booklist (starred review)

"[Quicksand] is structured as a courtroom procedural, yet it clearly has ambitions beyond that, addressing Sweden's underlying economic and racial tensions." --New York Times Book Review

"Brilliantly conceived and executed, this extraordinary legal thriller is not to be missed." --Library Journal (starred review)

"Haunting and immersive." --Publishers Weekly

"Expert dialogue and irresistible momentum make an all-too-realistic story come breathing off the page...Part courtroom thriller, part introspection, Quicksand is pulled tight throughout by the suspense, not only of Maja's verdict, but of the elusive 'truth' of what really happened in the classroom that day." --Shelf Awareness

"Thrilling." --TIME

"Sharp social commentary through the tragic story of a young woman's trial for mass murder...The rhythm, tone, and language are just right...a splendid work of fiction." --Kirkus Reviews

"Persson Giolito's craft takes us on a psychological ride." --Huffington Post

"A compelling, multi-layered study of a terrible school shooting." --Boston Herald
