Max Seeck gets better and better! – Helsingin Sanomat newspaper

Seeck introduces many characters, all more or less likely to be the murderer. I was sure I had it all figured out, but in the end I was just as surprised as Jessica! Great twist! – Kirjasähkökäyrä blog

Evil’s Net feels good to read. It is so different than the self-repeating Swedish Nordic Noirs novel. In addition to a great story and good side plots, there’s something in Seeck’s language that elevates Evil’s Net far beyond ordinary thrillers. – Kansan Uutiset Newspaper
