Sinopsis:

Unusual book

Críticas:

This is a pitiless portrait of inward-looking, bigoted peasants, beautifully written and equally well-translated. The book is gripping, and, incidentally, has broken sales records in Germany - Literary Review (Literary Review)

Already an international bestseller, this superior German crime novel explores the murder of an entire family. The novel is a collage of various voices and testaments with no 'drawing-room' expose at the end - the reader has to solve the case - Scotland on Sunday (Scotland on Sunday)

...remarkable, sparse, chilling novel...the literary equivalent of The Blair Witch Project...it is hard to read this book without coming under the sinister shadow of an Austrian family incarcerated in the cellar for half a lifetime - The Times (The Times)

With only a limited number of ways in which violent death can be investigated, crime writers have to use considerable ingenuity to bring anything fresh to the genre. Andrea Maria Schenkel has done it in her first novel, The Murder Farm . that this has been packed into such a short novel is a considerable achievement - The Times Literary Supplement (Times Literary Supplement)
