Plottet i Våpenskjold er helt rått.
Rune Westengen, Romerikes Blad
Bloedmist is fan-tas-tisch. Ongekend goed!
Eddy Zoey
Enger's novels are some of the best of the recent deluge of Scandinavian crime to hit the bookshelves ... An ideal novel for fans of The Killing.
Catholic Herald
Dieser neue skandinavische Autor lässt jedenfalls aufhorchen, und ich prophezeie einfach mal: Thomas Enger wird sich eine große Fan-Gemeinde erarbeiten – auch in Deutschland.

Blodrus er en rasende god spændingsroman. En af den slags, hvor tiden flyver af sted, fordi du er fanget fra første til sidste side. En bog, der stjæler dine nattetimer.
Vejle Amts Folkeblad
Ein echter Schocker, definitiv ein Must-read, dessen Sogwirkung niemand entkommen kann. Die Fälle von Henning Juul sind längst Kult und schlagen ein wie eine Bombe.
www.litteraturmarkt.info
A gripping narrative that begs comparison to Stieg Larsson.
Bookpage
Misdaadverslaggever Henning Juul lijkt in zijn doen en laten op een kruising tussen Wallander en Erlendur. Niet de minsten dus.
VN’s Detective & Thrillergids
Enger is one of the most unusual and intense talents in the field.
Independent
Enger's portrayal of a successful woman targeted by a malicious accusation makes for a very modern plot.
Joan Smith, Sunday Times
Jeg liker Jo Nesbø, jeg slukte Stieg Larsson, og jeg elsker Thomas Engers Henning Juul.
Nicola Bartels, Blanvalet
Ein solides, spannendes Debüt.
Die Presse am Sonntag
Navnet er Thomas Enger. Bid godt mærke i det, for det er en mand, der er ved at skrive sig ind blandt de bedste af Nordens krimiforfattere.
Kristeligt Dagblad
An intriguing new voice in crime.
NJ Cooper
Thomas Enger heeft een zeer verdienstelijk debuut geschreven. veel spanning en wendingen in het verhaal.
Thrillerboek.nl
Skendöd er spännande, grym, hemskt ibland, men jättespännande.
Viveca Sten, författare
Unforgettable…the interweaving stories were simply engrossing. A masterful debut thriller.
Misfit Salon (blog)
Suspenseful, dark and gritty, this is a must-read.
Booklist
Se non vi siete persi un solo libro di Jo Nesbø o se semplicemente siete grandi appassionati dei gialli scandinavi, allora non dovete assolutamente perdere il primo romanzo giallo di Thomas Enger: vi stupirà.
Scandinoir
Slick, compelling and taut, Thomas Enger’s PIERCED combines a sophisticated layering of mysteries with an intensely scarred hero embarked on a tragic quest. A dark and suspenseful blast of Nordic exposure.
Chris Ewan, author of the Good Thief series

Music

"Broken Wings"

This is a song I wrote for the short film Anniken, starring the acclaimed Norwegian actress Viktoria Winge. She also co-wrote the song with me. AND - she does the vocals. Amazing talent. Broken Wings is produced by Petter Anthon Næss.

"Christian's theme"

Christian's theme is actually two themes mixed together. The tracks were composed for a movie producer, who wanted something to chew on for his latest film called Pornopung. They went with something different, but nevertheless: I quite like the intensity, the soreness, of these two themes.

"Lullaby"

Hi, my name is Thomas Enger, and I'm an uncurable melancholic. This is one of my favorites, something I wrote a long time ago, and it is an example of the kind of music I write the most. Just me and my piano, stripped down to the melody's core. Calm. Quiet. Sad. Me.

"Skye"

In the year of 2000 I went on a Talisker pilgrimage to the beautiful island of Skye. Yes, that's in Scotland and yes, I drank a lot of whisky. I wanted to write a song that reflected the beauty of the island. The rawness of the nature. As you can imagine after listening - it rained a lot. But it was an amazing trip. This song is recorded together with my friend Petter Anthon Næss.

"22.07.11"

I'm a bit hesitant about posting this song, because - as you probably noticed - the title is somewhat special. It needs no further explanation. And I don't want to lie and say that I composed this song specifically with the horrific events last summer in mind, because this is actually something I made a few years ago. But let me just quickly explain the title. I wasn't in Norway when the bomb went off and people were being slaughtered at Utoya. But one of the first things I did when I got back, was to sit down and play the piano. I often do that when I come home from a journey, and this time I felt like I really needed to. There were so many things going on in my head, and the best release for me is to just let my fingers find their own paths between the black and white keys. And completely out of nowhere, I started playing this song. I hadn't played it for a long time, I didn't even know I had it in my fingers. But boom - there it was. And for me, this song sums up a lot of the emotions that were running through my head at that time. It somehow felt right and appropriate to name it 22.07.11. I really love this song. I hope you do, too.

"December"

I wrote this song some time quite close to Christmas a long time ago, and in lack of a better title - December came to mind. Actually I think it's quite fitting. The song has a snowy feel to it, while at the same time it is laced with the usual layers of melancholism. My good friend Petter Anthon Næss produced this. He also plays the piano in this song. Man, I wish I could play like that.

"Tangaroa"

Have you heard of Kon-Tiki? Of course you have. A few years back Torgeir S. Higraff, one of my closest friends, built a brand new balsa fleet - the Tangaroa - and did the same journey as Thor Heyerdahl and his crew did back in 1947. Before he left he asked me to write a song that somehow could reflect a little bit on the task at hand. The open sea. The dangers. The thought of leaving everybody behind for two, three months. Tangaroa is what I came up with.
