Krimi Cirklen: "It is one of the very best thrillers, which can easily measure up with the biggest international thriller authors. A huge research work has been done that makes the book's theme very realistic. The environments are as usual credible, the same is the the characters."
Litteratursiden: "In a time when there is a terrorist attack somewhere nearly daily, the history is badly current. The novel has a very creepy and realistic plot of a terrorist cell in Denmark, which hits both Aarhus and Copenhagen. It's a complete story with a surprising and thoughtful ending. "

Krimi‑Cirklen: “When you start on a new book from Inger Gammelgaard Madsen, you are always guaranteed pure, exciting entertainment. And her unique descritions of characters and environments make the story credible and authentic. And already now we can look forward to the 8th book in the series, Dommer og bøddel (Judge and Executioner), which will come out in 2015.”
DBC librarian’s review: "Well-written crime storie from Aarhus with current issues and a well-thought-out and well-functioning action course. For those who like a good crime storie. "
Krimi-Cirklen: "Blood rain is definitely one of the best crime stories written by Inger Gammelgaard Madsen. In an authentic, exciting and credible way she once again makes a puzzle where all the pieces fit. We strongly recommend Blood rain."
Litteratursiden: ”The language is as always flowing and flowering. Inger Gammelgaard Madsen has a lovely straightforward way of writing. The person gallery is well known, although Rolando is missing as a criminal assistant. The police officers and other regular characters just fill in enough to feel that they are familiar and looking forward to read more about their lives, but not so much that it takes the focus from the issues and the police work. A really nice balance. "
DBC librarian’s review: “A crime story with current topics and facts providing the background setting for an exciting plot…”

Krimi-Cirklen: “For the fifth time, Inger Gammelgaard Madsen shows that she can invent an exciting story as well as a realistic plot. She is writing her way into the elite of Danish crime literature. That is certain!”

Krimifan: ”A really good and exciting book which gives you something to think about – how much you use Facebook and what you post about yourself. It is a book which it is hard to put down, and it is also difficult to figure out what actually happens to Sara. I rate it four out of five.”
Krimi-Cirklen: “Plotwise, Under skriftesegl (Sealed Confession) is both exciting and interesting, and the different settings are depicted sharply and well. Probably the best of Inger Gammelgaard Madsen’s four crime novels so far.”
DBC librarian’s review: ”The specific local colour of Aarhus can also be found in the work of authors such as Elsebeth Egholm and Inger Wolf, and, incidentally, readers of Sara Blædel and Liza Marklund will feel well entertained by this crime story as well.”
The library recommends: ”An exciting Danish crime story that you cannot put down – a crime story in a class by itself. The book is very exciting and well-written. The characters are described in such a way that the reader finds it easy to understand their situation and their often hard fate. You are well entertained from start to finish.”

Krimifan: “The book is never dull or transparent, nor is it that easy to figure out who the murderer is. Parallel with the crime and the solving of it, we follow a budding love story. A love that could be beautiful and deserved but which makes the reader’s insides ache because you know that it is bound to end in disaster!”

RUNDT OM BOGEN/About the book: ”Roland, Anne and Kamilla are some of the characters we meet in Inger Gammelgaard Madsen’s debut Dukkebarnet (The Baby Doll) which I warmly recommend. It is well-written, has excellent descriptions of the characters and a subject of great current interest. I certainly hope the writer will continue to write.”
Kochs Krimier: "The plot is well thought out, and there is a good, convincing description of how Benito and his men finally arrive at an understanding of the facts of the case. And the story is exciting with a good climax at the end. I congratulate Inger Gammelgaard Madsen on an excellent and valuable first crime story.”
ÅRHUS STIFTSTIDENDE: "The chapters follow each other in such a way that focus switches between the main characters, and often a chapter ends with a small cliff hanger. This gives the reader something to ponder about as well as drive to the story. In other words: The writer has a good grip of her material and the rather complex connections between the main and secondary story lines.”
“If you like a crime story of pure excitement and action, Dukkebarnet (The Baby Doll) will live up to your demands.”
ANISTON.DK - online life style magazine for women: ”Dukkebarnet (The Baby Doll) is a book that I can certainly recommend for the cold, dark days soon ahead of us. Not only does it have fantastic descriptions of character and a subject of great current interest, it is also a very well-written book. Furthermore the story takes place, not in a strange city in a foreign country, but in good, old Aarhus and its vicinity. It being so close to home does not only add to the excitement, it also makes you wonder, what if…?”
