Rave reviews in France

“When we talk about Norwegian crime fiction, we immediately think of Jo Nesbo, the little blond who has been monopolizing the genre for years … A compatriot living in Marseille comes however to outdo him. Aslak Nore, not unknown at all in his own country, has just released a more than five hundred pages book, “The Cemetery of the Sea”, a family and historical novel, which is well worth the time, leaving the creator of the series, Occupied, for a while … Aslak Nore moves his pen around like a camera … The author saves the final cut which suggests it won’t stop there. So much the better.” Karen Lajon — Le Journal du Dimanche

“Fascinating romantic saga which revolves around the secrets of a large Norwegian family. The strength of its storytelling and its truly romantic energy make it a perfect example of what an authentic page-turner can be without being cheap.” Olivier Mony — Livres hebdo

“The Cemetery of the Sea” is a historical novel as well as an exciting thriller … Carried by an alert writing, a precise documentation, of which the author gives the keys at the end, a strong subject, as instructive as fascinating, it has everything to seduce readers wishing to escape the conventions of certain crime fiction.” Marion Poirson -Dechonne – Mare Nostrum

“History is power: whether it’s official accounts or family myths, it’s all about manipulation, especially when numerous secrets resurface … For lovers of Nordic Noir and adventure novels. Laura Picro – L’arbre aux lettres

“An XXL Scandinavian crime novel … an honest whodunnit that mixes the codes of the soap opera and the energy of a Netflix series, by a gifted writer in the genre.”
Jérôme Malbert – L’incorrect
