»With The Peer Gynt Papers, Rainer Doh delivers an exciting Norwegian thriller, somewhere in the field of politics and economics. His inspector Arne Jakobson is a likeable character from the countryside, he gives it depth. [...] Apart from the characters, however, a crime novel lives above all from the depth of its case, which Doh does pleasingly well.«
