THE FINAL INSTALMENT IN THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING DARK ICELAND SERIES OVER A MILLION COPIES SOLD WORLDWIDE When a police officer is murdered in the dead of night, in the isolated Icelandic town of Siglufjordur, Ari Thor Arason faces a complex investigation that takes him back to the past, and some sinister secrets... 'A modern take on an Agatha Christie-style mystery' Ian Rankin 'Ragnar Jonasson write with such a chilling, poetic beauty - a must-read addition to the growing canon of Iceland Noir' Peter James Siglufjoerdur: an idyllically quiet fishing village on the northernmost tip of Iceland, accessible only via a small mountain tunnel. Ari Thor Arason: a local policeman, whose tumultuous past and uneasy relationships with the villagers continue to haunt him. The peace of this close-knit community is shattered by the murder of a policeman - shot at point-blank range in the dead of night in a deserted house. With a killer on the loose and the dark arctic winter closing in, it falls to Ari Thor to piece together a puzzle that involves tangled local politics, a compromised new mayor, and a psychiatric ward in Reykjavik, where someone is being held against their will. Then a mysterious young woman moves to the area, on the run from something she dare not reveal, and it becomes all too clear that tragic events from the past are weaving a sinister spell that may threaten them all. Dark, chilling and complex, Nightblind is an extraordinary thriller from an undeniable new talent.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Jonasson plays fair with the reader - his clues are traditional and beautifully finessed - and he keeps you turning the pages. Snowblind is morally more equivocal than most traditional whodunnits, and it offers alluring glimpses of darker, and infinitely more threatening horizons' Independent * 'A tiny, segregated town is a superb setting for a crime novel, and Jonasson exploits it well. He builds a layered mystery featuring a series of unhealthy secrets, and past crimes buried deep in the sheltered, almost claustrophobic recesses of family life, which Ari Thor will pay a high price for unravelling' Crime Thriller Journal * 'Bitingly contemporary in setting and tone' Express * 'A modern take on an Agatha Christie-style mystery, as twisty as any slalom...' Ian Rankin * 'Ragnar Jonasson does claustrophobia beautifully' Ann Cleeves

“Embrace the darkness...”

As much as I enjoyed Snowblind, I can say confidently that Nightblind is actually even better. I don’t know the time period of Jonasson writing his quintet, but there is a real sense of a growth in maturity in his... More
