'Yrsa is a magnificent writer' Karin Slaughter

'The queen of Icelandic thriller writers' Guardian

A chilling note written by a thirteen-year-old predicting the deaths of six people is found in a time capsule, ten years after it was buried. Can it be a real threat?

Detective Huldar turns to psychologist Freyja to help understand the child who hid the message.

But the discovery of the letter coincides with a string of murders. All of the victims match the initials from the note.

Huldar and Freyja must race to identify the writer and the murderer, before the rest of the targets are killed...

MEDIA REVIEWS

THE RECKONING is another chilling, atmospheric tale from the undisputed Queen of Icelandic Noir. I loved it. - Simon Kernick

There's no waffle in The Reckoning: it is brutal, baroque and ends with a brilliant last-minute twist. - Evening Standard

One of the best books I've read for a long time: dark, creepy, and gripping from beginning to end. - Stuart MacBride, author of the Logan McRae series

It's addictive, bleak, and will give you thrills and chills in equal measures. - Cosmopolitan Magazine

Yrsa Sigurdardóttir has with her large-scale and genuinely intelligent stories attempted to find the core of Iceland's distinctive society, and thus pushed the Icelandic crime novel tradition many steps forward. - Arne Dahl

Yrsa Sigurðardóttir's incredible gift of mixing the macabre and the poignant, together with the astute observations of the ordinary life, sprinkled with a dark sense of humour, keeps on giving in buckets. Her imagination knows no bounds, turning the most ordinary objects into deadly weapons... The nuanced writing encompasses the thriller's overwhelming sense of doom as it explores the failings of the society to protect victims. - Crime Review

A dark story by a brilliant author. A densely plotted, multifaceted and compelling book. Exceeds most novels in the thriller genre. - Erik Axl Sund

Praise for THE LEGACY - :

Iceland's outstanding crime novelist - Daily Express

Yrsa remains the queen of Icelandic thriller writers. - Guardian

If you like your crime fiction dark and engaging, look no further. THE LEGACY is as brutal as it gets. A cracking start to a new series by Yrsa Sigurdardottir. - Mari Hannah, author of the DCI Kate Daniels series
