Review:

'Steinhof conceals an incredible power beneath its unassuming surface. It is as if Hansson has come closer to the clear spring water that she has been searching for. As soon as you breathe on the text, it becomes luminous' - Expressen 'Hansson builds up a picture of a woman who has denied her past in a highly suggestive manner. She portrays this very painful process with great competence and insight... incredibly powerful and shocking' - Dala Demokraten
