Description

Drugs, smuggling, big money and political intrigue in Iceland rally with love, passion, murder and betrayal until the winner takes all ... in the masterful, explosive conclusion to the award-winning Reykjavik Noir trilogy...

'Tough, uncompromising and unsettling' Val McDermid

'A tense thriller with a highly unusual plot and interesting characters' The Times

The prison doors slam shut behind Agla, when her sentence ends, but her lover Sonja is not there to meet her.

As a group of foreign businessmen tries to draw Agla into an ingenious fraud that stretches from Iceland around the world, Agla and her former nemesis, Maria find the stakes being raised at a terrifying speed.
Ruthless drug baron Ingimar will stop at nothing to protect his empire, but he has no idea about the powder keg he is sitting on in his own home.
At the same time, a deadly threat to Sonya and her family brings her from London back to Iceland, where she needs to settle scores with longstanding adversaries if she wants to stay alive.

Review quote

Further showcases Sigurdardottir's facility with intricate plotting and sympathetic characters. . . . A worthy addition to the icy-cold crime genre popularized by Scandinavian noir novels." --Foreword Reviews on Trap "Sigurdardottir's unflinching portrayal of Iceland's burgeoning underworld and the streamlined, raw intensity of her prose distinguishes her from fellow Icelanders who have become popular in the American crime-fiction world. . . . This is prime binge-reading." --Booklist starred review of Trap
