Critics Praise Sundstøl’s “Mystically Mysterious” Second Volume

only_dead_sundstolWe’re excited to tell you that ONLY THE DEAD by Vidar Sundstøl is now available from University of Minnesota Press!

“Like the central movement of a dark Grieg symphony, this brief second installment of Norwegian author Sundstøl’s Minnesota Trilogy resounds with two stunning variations on a single theme: the complex motivations behind murders that link brotherhood, love, and death,” says Publishers Weekly, adding, “Readers will eagerly await The Ravens, the trilogy’s conclusion.”

In a starred review, Kirkus says, “The second in the Minnesota Trilogy, this slim volume is so exquisitely written, lyrically descriptive and mystically mysterious it could stand on its own, but to understand all the nuances it’s best read as part of the trilogy.”

We think you’d better listen to them and buy both ONLY THE DEAD and THE LAND OF DREAMS, the first installment, today! Then you, too, will be eagerly awaiting the final installment!
