Description

Pre-order the final nail-biting instalment in the critically acclaimed Hidden Iceland series

'No country associated with the label Nordic noir is as bleak, cold, snowy and empty as Iceland. And no crime writer portrays those elements as evocatively and scarily as Ragnar Jonasson' The Times

1987. An isolated farm house in the east of Iceland.

The snowstorm should have shut everybody out. But it didn't.

The couple should never have let him in. But they did.

An unexpected guest, a liar, a killer. Not all will survive the night. And Detective Hulda will be haunted forever.

Praise for Ragnar Jonasson

Review quote

One of the great tragic heroines of contemporary detective fiction * Sunday Times * Adds several shades of darkness to Nordic noir * Anthony Horowitz * 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 Ragnar Jonasson * - *
