Yrsa Sigurdardóttir is the bestselling and award-winning Icelandic crime author of the Thóra Gudmundsdóttir series, as well as several stand-alone thrillers. She made her crime fiction debut in 2005 with Last Rituals, the first installment in the Thóra series, and has since been translated into 35 languages. Her work stands ‘in comparison with the finest contemporary crime writing anywhere in the world’, according to The Times Literary Supplement. Her standalone horror novel, I Remember You, has been made into a major motion picture, and will be in cinemas at the end of the year, while filming of the Thóra series for English language television is set to begin in the autumn. Someone To Watch Over Me was voted best crime novel of 2013 by the Sunday Times, and in 2015, Silence of the Sea won the Petrona Award. Her newest book is The Undesired.
