  • An intensely gripping mystery, Ragnar Jonasson is a poet of the "dark, wet and cold", of the "gloom, cold and rain". The climactic revelations are credible and moving

    The Times, BOOK OF THE MONTH
  • A creepy tale

    The Times
  • A master of the Icelandic thriller

    New York Post

    Sunday Times
  • Invigorating Iceland-set slice of Nordic Noir

    Daily Mail
  • With his trademark elegant prose and atmospheric sense of place, Jonasson weaves a slow-burning, haunting tale with a chilling ending

    Daily Record
  • With his trademark elegant prose and atmospheric sense of place, Jónasson weaves a slow-burning, haunting tale with a chilling ending

    Sunday Express
  • Lean, compulsive. Great stories that combine traditional puzzle-solving of the golden age crime fiction with a moody expansive psychology

    The Times
  • Fiendishy clever trilogy

    Financial Times
  • A mist-shrouded blend of horror and psychological thriller . . . works in every way. The isolated village and the pre-smartphone 1980s setting create a sense of claustrophobia that combines with the villagers' secrecy and the hint of supernatural elements to infuse strong foreboding throughout what is ultimately revealed to be a story about trust
