Maite Cuadros, the Spanish Publisher of Maeva says: “We at MAEVA loved Ruth Lillegraven, an intelligent and talented new Scandinavian voice, a poet converted into a thriller writer. This is a perfect acquisition in our MAEVANoir selection, a new heroine Clara is born in the crime international panorama.”

The Norwegian Press says:
«Clara stands out as an integrated, dark and interesting character»
Leif Ekle, NRK

«A compelling thriller debut… In Deep Fjord, Lillegraven slips smoothly and effortlessly into the role of an author of the artful and refined thriller.»
Pål Gerhard Olsen, Aftenposten

“The author’s crime fiction debut is a credible, true-to-genre psychological thriller with all the ingredients to make it a hit with readers.”
