“Again the problem of attitudes toward middle-aged, competent women. Why were they so intimidating?”
Helene Tursten, Detective Inspector Huss

“The difference between a wise person and a foolish person is that the wise one does not repeat his mistakes,”
Helene Tursten, The Golden Calf

Helen Tursten
