Product description

Review

Ragnar's best written book, filled with psychological horror and underlying rage. Hulda Hermannsdottir is a welcome addition to the selection of Icelandic crime fiction protagonists . . . It is almost impossible to put the book down until the last word has been read (Fréttablaðið)

Ragnar's best book yet (Kiljan, literary TV show)

The threads lie in various places, the plot is well woven and the pieces in the puzzle come
together well in the end. The structure is good, the main characters are believable, the story flows
well, everyone is a suspect á la Agatha Christie and the solution unveils the mystery and leads the
readers to the truth. But not all the truth, as some things are better left hidden

(Morgunbladid)

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, bestselling author of The Couple Next Door)

Praise for The Darkness (-)

It will get your pulse racing and keep you hooked to the last page

(Simon Kernick of The Bone Field series)

Magnificently dark and twisted! That ending - blimey! (C. J. Tudor, bestselling author of The Chalk Man)

Expertly plotted, with an ending that's a true shocker, The Darkness is the first book in a trilogy featuring this engaging investigator, which is good news (The Guardian)

I've ONLY recently discovered the extraordinary Icelandic writer who adds several shades of darkness to Nordic noir . . . it builds to a deeply shocking climax (Daily Mail, Ten Thrillers to Die For Anthony Horowitz)

Superb. . . chilling . . . This is the first volume in Jonasson's Hidden Iceland trilogy, which tells Hulda's story in reverse chronological order and establishes her as one of the great tragic heroines of contemporary detective fiction (Sunday Times Crime Book of the Month)

From the Inside Flap

The island of Elliðaey sits off the Icelandic coast. Accessible only by boat its isolation makes it the perfect place to vanish.

During a long, hot summer four friends visit the island. Only three will return.

They each share a past, and a dark secret that could harm them all. As the days pass, tensions rise and loyalties are shed, one of them will commit murder.

Detective Inspector Hulda Hermannsdóttir is sent to investigate and soon finds echoes with the case of a young woman found murdered ten years previously in the nearby West Fjords. Is there a patient killer stalking these barren outposts?

As Hulda navigates a sinister game constructed of smoke and mirrors, she is convinced that no one is telling the truth, including those closest to her. But who will crack first?

Haunting, suspenseful and as chilling as the Icelandic winter The Island follows one woman's journey to find the truth hidden in the darkest shadows, and shine a light on her own dark past.
