The first Thora Gudmundsdottir novel from Yrsa Sigurdardottir - 'Queen of Icelandic crime'.

'Yrsa is one of the most exciting new voices in the crime thriller world.' - Peter James

A young man is found brutally murdered, his eyes gouged out. A student of Icelandic history in Reykjavik, he came from a wealthy German family who do not share the police's belief that his drug dealer murdered him. Attorney Thora Gudmundsdottir is commissioned by his mother to find out the truth, with the help - and hindrance - of boorish ex-policeman Matthew Reich. Their investigations into his research take them deep into a grisly world of torture and witchcraft both past and present, as they draw ever closer to a killer gripped by a dangerous obsession...

MEDIA REVIEWS

I can see why so many people are enthusiastic about Yrsa's work. It's very engaging, fresh and exciting. - James Patterson

A grisly chiller set in the depths of winter ... Her mystery is absorbing and, untypically, instead of the usual gloomy middle-aged man, her sleuth is a young woman ... It's an accomplished debut, with credible characters and a personable heroine. - Sunday Telegraph

Dark, deep and icy as an Icelandic fjord; this is a rich and rewarding debut novel of ancient mysteries and very modern murder. - Mark Billingham

An intricately plotted tale that keeps the reader guessing whodunit, or indeed whether it was murder at all, right until the very end. - Sunday Express

“Excellent first outting for female lawyer”

An intriguing story with echoes of real historical events and writings means it's hard to put the book down. The lead investigator, a very modern working single mother, provides the rather Gothic plot with... More

“Nordic Noir at is finest”

If you love Nordic Noir like I do then you must read Yrsa Sigurdardottir.
Witchcraft, a gruesome murder mystery and plenty of acerbic humour, you will fly through this.
