Picture this - four friends on a mountain climb are stranded in an Icelandic blizzard. Seeking shelter in an abandoned hunting lodge, they plan to wait out the storm. But what's in the lodge? As they look around, they realize they're being watched. Terrified, but with no place to go, they seem destined to stay the night. Who will be alive tomorrow?
Suspenseful, atmospheric (Jonasson's expertise), and heart-pounding. Don't miss this one! Expect to read it in one sitting. I couldn't put it down! - Brenda
Jonasson's first book in the Ari Thor series - set in Reykjavik - with a tone more like a classic Golden Age mystery than dark Scandinavian noir.
The CWA Gold Dagger winnter featuring inspector Erlender, also set in Iceland. A must-read for fans of Scandinavian crime fiction.
