Quotes & Awards

  • Solid description of the insides of the corridors of power ... A Snowden-showdown whistle-blowing scandal—Independent, Best Noir Newcomers
  • A first-rate debut thriller that asks: Who watches the watchers if they don't choose to be seen? The narrative starts slow but doesn't take long to build up speed. From then on, watch out!—Library Journal
  • A modern take on the spy thriller ... Norman's warning is a clear message to the 'nothing to hide, nothing to fear' camp who challenged the import of the Snowden revelations ... A Le Carré-esque yarn that's rooted in verisimilitude . No faint praise that—Independent
  • An excellent and very up-to-the-minute novel ... Is this how others see us now? If so, alas!—Literary Review
  • Andreas Norman is uncannily close to the truth—Anonymous Head of undisclosed department at the Swedish Security Service HQ in Stockholm
  • Gripping and unnervingly believable, it's a fictionalised exposé of Anglo-American spying—Choice
  • So plugged into the present that it's hard to believe its publication in Norman's native Sweden anticipated Edward Snowden's revelations by two months . . . Norman's understanding of the dark, destructive side of surveillance is second to none, and at its best, Into a Raging Blaze is convincing and addictive—Guardian
  • Rarely have I read such a well-written debut novel as this ... Well orchestrated dramaturgy, rich language, and extremely believable characters ... Andreas Norman has written a dizzying thriller—Dagens Nyheter, Sweden
  • Norman handles its derring-do deftly. For British readers, however, the main source of interest is its unflattering reverse-angle view of our spooks at work—Sunday Times
  • Much hyped, but largely worthy of the hype; a strong debut by a Swedish Ministry insider moving provocatively in Snowden/Assange 'leaks' territory'—Guardian
  • I haven't been able to erase Andreas Norman's Into a Raging Blaze from my mind. In the aftermath of Edward Snowden, it all seems horribly prescient. It's written by a Swedish diplomat and is a salutary reminder that not everyone trusts the Brits!—Times Higher Education
