“The truth that traumas are transmitted from technology to technology is depicted as by no means earlier than within the illustrated novel The Crows, the place Kim, who inherits an deserted household farm within the countryside, is confronted together with his wounded legacy. Anders Fager parts the textual content out on a number of ranges, within the type of post-it notes and voices from the previous. Seamlessly, Peter Bergting’s evocative visible storytelling provides to the depiction of encountering a painful household heritage. Creepy horror parts and folk-belief deepen the unease that gravitates over each Kim and the reader.” –August Prize jury notes
“Anders Fager writers for younger adults in The Crows, with fantastically evocative, moody, and darkish artwork from Peter Bergting. However there isn’t any method out of the darkness.” –Dagens Nyheter
“Bergting and Fager let the contours fade in step by step, with small phrases inserted as clues within the November hazy photographs. Footage that, by the way in which, will be probably the most stunning that Bergting has ever made. The studying expertise is nearly cinematic, the woman who on the following web page turns right into a witch a visible sweet bag. On the identical time, Fager’s language opens up small abysses beneath it. He’s poetic, short-cut, hyper-detailed.” –Expressen
“Questions from the readers get extra complicated the longer one reads … Each the author and the artist are masters of horror.” —Kristianstadbladet
