Swedish praise:

“A crime novel in the style of Lars Kepler, with a plot that gives “Da Vinci Code” vibes, with a main character reminiscent of Lisbeth Salander? Sounds too crzy to wrokk Still, I am literally enchanted by this thriller!”
– Dagens Nyheter Newspaper, Sweden

“Max Seeck has created an international police thriller, a page turner and bestseller! I turned the pages as fast as I could. It is so well-constructed and skillfully executed. As soon as an occultist event fades out, something else just s incredible happens.” – Smålandsposten newspaper, Sweden

“Guaranteed binge-reading!” – Göteborgs post newspaper, Sweden

“Well-written and exciting! Seeck is a star.” -Gefle Dagblad newspaper, Sweden

“Perfect for those who want a little extra fireworks in their crime reading!” – Vimmerby Tiding newspaper, Sweden

Max was also interviewed for the biggest Swedish newspaper in Finland, Huvudstadsbladet, who yesterday published an extensive article about Seeck and his career.
