When Sonja's son is kidnapped by her ruthless ex-husband, she's thrust back into the world of cocaine smuggling, but this time she's got a plan of her own... High-stakes jeopardy presides in book two of the dark and original, nail-bitingly fast-paced Reykjavik Noir trilogy... 'Tense, edgy and delivering more than a few unexpected twists and turns' Sunday Times 'Tough, uncompromising and unsettling' Val McDermid 'Tense and pacey, this intriguing mix of white-collar and white-powder crime could certainly be enjoyed as a standalone, but I would suggest reading its excellent predecessor, Snare, first' `Guardian ------------------------------------------------------ Happily settled in Florida, Sonja believes she's finally escaped the trap set by unscrupulous drug lords. But when her son Tomas is taken, she's back to square one ... and Iceland. Her lover, Agla, is awaiting sentencing for financial misconduct after the banking crash, and Sonja refuses to see her. And that's not all ... Agla owes money to some extremely powerful men, and they'll stop at nothing to get it back. With her former nemesis, customs officer Bragi, on her side, Sonja puts her own plan into motion, to bring down the drug barons and her scheming ex-husband, and get Tomas back safely. But things aren't as straightforward as they seem, and Sonja finds herself caught in the centre of a trap that will put all of their lives at risk... Set in Reykjavik - still covered in the dust of the Eyjafjallajoekull volcanic eruption and the aftermath of the banking crisis - Trap is an award-winning, deliciously dark and outstandingly original slice of Nordic Noir, from one of Iceland's finest crime writers. --------------------------------------------- Praise for the Reykjavik Noir Trilogy 'A tense thriller with a highly unusual plot and interesting characters' Marcel Berlins, The Times 'With characters you can't help sympathising with against your better judgement, Sigurdardottir takes the reader on a breathtaking ride ... Stylish, taut and compelling' Jon Coates, Daily Express 'Pacey and tense, Trap is full of delicious carnage that could translate well to the screen' New Zealand Listener 'This is a searing portrait of the less salubrious parts of the Icelandic psyche as well as a riveting thriller' Sunday Express 'Sharp shocks of chapters hit with increasing energy ... a towering powerhouse of read and I gobbled it up in one intense sitting' LoveReading 'The intricate plot is breathtakingly original, with many twists and turns you never see coming. Thriller of the year' New York Journal of Books 'The action is fast, helped by the short chapters switching us from one set of characters to another, the villains ruthless, and the undercover world of Iceland vividly evoked. A treat for fans' Promoting Crime 'Smart, ambitious and hugely satisfying' Eva Dolan 'Zips along with tension building and building' James Oswald 'An emotional suspense rollercoaster on a par with The Firm' Alexandra Sokoloff 'Compelling ... this is prime binge-reading' Booklist 'The suspenseful Trap takes full advantage of its fresh setting and is a worthy addition to the icy-cold crime genre popularized by Scandinavian noir novels' Foreword Reviews

“Dark thriller set in ICELAND”

Trap is second title in the Reykjavik thriller series by Lilja Sigurðardóttir. We reviewed the first, Snare, back in October 2017. Trap is every bit as good as Snare. It features the same characters and takes them... More

“Iceland Noir - so hot, it's cool”

I loved this book. There. It took me longer to read than Snare, the first book in this Icelandic crime trilogy, but that's more to do with my available time, and believe me, I was desperate to turn pages and see... More
