Four friends visited the island. But only three returned ...

Detective Inspector Hulda Hermannsdottir is sent to the isolated island of Ellidaey to investigate a disappearance.

But she finds haunting similarities to an old case - the murder of a young woman ten years ago.

Has a patient killer struck again?

Hulda is soon caught in a web of deceit, convinced everyone is lying, even those closest to her.

What secrets is the island hiding?

And what price will she pay for uncovering the truth?

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Dark, chilling and utterly gripping, The Island is Nordic noir at its best, and is destined to become a classic of the genre. I couldn't put it down. I can't wait to read the rest of the Hulda series!' - Shari Lapena

'Few writers at work today conjure atmosphere with such power, or plot their mysteries with such craft. The Island is his best book yet, an unflinching thriller that braids past and present, good and evil, love and loss. I can't wait for Hulda Hermannsdottir's next case' - A. J. Finn, bestselling author of The Woman in the Window

'No one does isolation better than Ragnar Jonasson, who is superb at portraying Iceland's stark landscape and savage beauty ... [Hulda Hermannsdottir is] an excellent addition to the growing band of top-class women detectives' -The Times

'Prepare to be swept away to the beautiful yet unforgiving island of Ellidaey in Jonasson's latest Icelandic noir. Atmospheric and creepy, Jonasson successfully keeps you guessing till the bittersweet end' - Heat

'A chilling novel about people with dark secrets, protecting themselves without a thought for the consequences. Riveting' - The Sunday Times

'This kept me guessing right up until the final pages. I loved the vivid landscapes, brilliant characterisation and intricate plotting. Bravo!' - Liz Nugent, bestselling author of Skin Deep

'Consider this one of the author's best plots, layered with that dour Scandinavian atmosphere we love' - The New York Times
