The Pick of the Bunch

6th December 2013

Outstanding success across the press for DB Miller’s Norwegian by Night in the end of year editor’s picks:

Economist (6 Best Fiction Titles of the Year)
‘Not many authors succeed in being funny about dementia. This unusual thriller, with its memorable octogenarian hero, introduces a bold new voice in fiction that deserves to become better known.’

Guardian Crime Thriller Roundup
Norwegian By Night, winner of the Crime Writers’ Association John Creasey Dagger, is the funny, moving and gripping story of cantankerous 82-year-old widower and ex-marine Sheldon Horowitz, uprooted from his native New York to Oslo, who finds himself on the run with the six year-old son of a murdered neighbour and the ghosts of his past.’

Kirkus Top 10 Favourite Crime Novels
‘Ripe with memories of wars long ago fought and regrets insurmountable, this is a remarkably moving, memorable debut thriller.’

Barry Forshaw, Financial Times
‘Miller’s discursive but richly written novel introduces us to 82-year-old Sheldon, a Jewish-American anti-hero who worries about senility and chafes in his new country, Norway - until Balkan villains and a cross-country chase change his life.’

It was also crowned Crimefictionlover’s #1 Debut of the Year.
