A chilling crime novel from the Queen of Icelandic crime and author of the highly-acclaimed LAST RITUALS.
If I die before I wake . . .
A grisly murder is committed at a health resort situated in a recently renovated farmhouse, which turns out to be notorious for being haunted. Attorney Thora Gudmundsdottir is called upon by the owner of the resort - the prime suspect in the case - to represent him. Her investigations uncover some very disturbing occurrences at the farm decades earlier - things that have never before seen the light of day . . .
MY SOUL TO TAKE is a chilling, dark and witty crime novel, and a welcome return for Thora, the heroine of the highly-acclaimed LAST RITUALS.

The second book from Yrsa Sigurdardottir is funny as well as being a taut and accomplished novel. -- Books of the Year * Independent *
Yrsa Sigurdardottir brilliantly conjures an atmosphere of creeping menace and unreality. * Guardian *
The numerous twists and turns are worthy of Agatha Christie and keep the reader guessing until the very end. * Sunday Telegraph *
