Yrsa Sigurðardóttir is an international writing sensation and ‘Iceland’s crime queen’ (The Scotsman). Author of the bestselling Thora Gudmundsdottir crime series and several stand-alone thrillers, she is a master of atmosphere who suffuses addictive procedural stories with the isolation and desolateness of her native country.
