Said about the novel:

"With skillful hands and aces up his sleeve the author Hans Olsson takes the reader into the abyss. King's Hope is an innovative and well written horror thriller where you'll sit on needles the whole time. It's The Hunger Games for the poker generation." Jonny Berg, Swedish Zombie

 

"I've played poker on a lot of different places in the world, from Las Vegas to Macao, and witnessed bets that people can only dream about. But the thriller King's Hope takes the poker to a whole new level - it's a game of life and death." Simon "Dybban" Lindell, poker chronicler

 

"King's Hope is one of the most different descriptions of poker that I've read under my carrier as a professional poker writer. Even the most successful characters in the novel plays and talks poker in a way that no normal poker player does today, but on the other hand there's nothing normal in playing poker where your life is at stakes each and every hand. Hans Olsson manages to make me want to read just a bit more, and I guess that's the only thing that matters?" Erik "Valterego" Rosenberg, editor-in-chief Poker.se
