When a depressed, alcoholic single mother disappears, everything suggests suicide, but when her body is found, Icelandic Detective Elma and her team are thrust into a perplexing, chilling investigation. _____________ When single mother Marianna disappears from her home, leaving an apologetic note on the kitchen table, everyone assumes that she's taken her own life ... until her body is found on the Grabrok lava fields seven months later, clearly the victim of murder. Her neglected fifteen-year-old daughter Hekla has been placed in foster care, but is her perfect new life hiding something sinister? Fifteen years earlier, a desperate new mother lies in a maternity ward, unable to look at her own child, the start of an odd and broken relationship that leads to a shocking tragedy. Police officer Elma and her colleagues take on the case, which becomes increasingly complex, as the number of suspects grows and new light is shed on Marianna's past - and the childhood of a girl who never was like the others... Breathtakingly chilling and tantalisingly twisty, Girls Who Lie is at once a startling, tense psychological thriller and a sophisticated police procedural, marking Eva Bjoerg AEgisdottir as one of the most exciting new names in crime fiction. _______________ Praise for Eva Bjoerg AEgisdottir 'An exciting and harrowing tale from one of Iceland's rising stars' Ragnar Jonasson 'Fans of Nordic Noir will love this moving debut from Icelander Eva Bjoerg AEgisdottir's. It's subtle, nuanced, with a sympathetic central character and the possibilities of great stories to come' Ann Cleeves 'Eva Bjoerg AEgisdottir's accomplished first novel is not only a full-fat mystery, but also a chilling demonstration of how monsters are made' The Times 'Elma is a memorably complex character, and Victoria Cribb's translation is (as usual) non-pareil' Financial Times 'Elma is a fantastic heroine' Sunday Times

GIRLS WHO LIE.
An interesting storyline with some excellent descriptions of Iceland.
I have to admit that I have struggled a little with this book. Perhaps something has been lost in translation, but I found it slow... More

“A whodunnit to get you thinking”

This is one of those books whose ending is not how you would want it to be. I have no qualms in telling you this, because you really won't know exactly what I'm talking about until you get to the end. So... More
