A dark story by a brilliant author. A densely plotted, multifaceted and compelling book. Exceeds most novels in the thriller genre.
Iceland's outstanding crime novelist
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.
It's addictive, bleak, and will give you thrills and chills in equal measures.
One of the best books I've read for a long time: dark, creepy, and gripping from beginning to end.
Praise for Yrsa Sigurdardottir's Freyja and Huldar series
THE RECKONING is another chilling, atmospheric tale from the undisputed Queen of Icelandic Noir. I loved it.
There's no waffle in The Reckoning: it is brutal, baroque and ends with a brilliant last-minute twist.
Yrsa is a magnificent writer.
Yrsa remains the queen of Icelandic thriller writers.
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.
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.
Credited as the queen of Icelandic crime, Sigurdardottir's story about the dark side of school and social media is as gripping as it is grisly
Sigurdardottir doesn't shy away from the hideous effects of bullying, combining a tough novel about a grim social phenomenon with a fast-paced plot
