Praise for Yrsa Sigurdardottir's Freyja and Huldar series
Yrsa is a magnificent writer.
One of the best books I've read for a long time: dark, creepy, and gripping from beginning to end.
THE RECKONING is another chilling, atmospheric tale from the undisputed Queen of Icelandic Noir. I loved it.
Iceland's outstanding crime novelist
Yrsa Sigurdardóttir has with her large-scale and genuinely intelligent stories attempted to find the core of Iceland's distinctive society, and thus pushed the Icelandic crime novel tradition many steps forward.
A dark story by a brilliant author. A densely plotted, multifaceted and compelling book. Exceeds most novels in the thriller genre.
It's addictive, bleak, and will give you thrills and chills in equal measures.
Yrsa remains the queen of Icelandic thriller writers.
Yrsa Sigurdardottir gets better and better with each book. The relationships and the humour lighten the darkest plot.
Freyja and Huldar are one of the most intriguing crime detecting partnerships around and THE ABSOLUTION is a gripping, fascinating insight into the dark side of social media and children at risk. THE ABSOLUTION confirms Yrsa as a master storyteller with a satisfyingly slanted view of the world she recreates.
Praise for Gallows Rock
Nail-biting... Iceland's long dark nights are at their most minatory in Sigurðardóttir's atmospheric thrillers
Sigurdardottir is as confident a writer as ever
The multi-award winning Icelandic writer has a growing UK fan base. The fourth thriller featuring child psychologist Freyja and detective Hulder, is as chilling as Scandi noir should be
Sigurðardóttir hooks her readers very quickly... Eventually, justice is done and the loose ends are satisfactorily tied up
Pacey dealing out of the plot twists amid uniquely Icelandic characters and circumstances
You'll devour it with fascination and you'll be head over heels with Sigurðardóttir's writing
Packs an all too timely punch - 5 Stars
Well-paced police procedural with a twist you may not see coming
If you like your crime fiction dark and engaging, look no further. THE LEGACY is as brutal as it gets. A cracking start to a new series by Yrsa Sigurdardottir.
There's no waffle in The Reckoning: it is brutal, baroque and ends with a brilliant last-minute twist.
