9780061143373: Last Rituals: A Novel of Suspense

At a university in Reykjavik, the body of a young German student is discovered, his eyes cut out and strange symbols carved into his chest. Police waste no time in making an arrest, but the victim's family isn't convinced that the right man is in custody. They ask Thora Gudmundsdottir, an attorney and single mother of two, to investigate. It isn't long before Thora and her associate, Matthew Reich, uncover the deceased student's obsession with Iceland's grisly history of torture, execution, and witch hunts. But there are very contemporary horrors hidden in the long, cold shadow of dark traditions. And for two suddenly endangered investigators, nothing is quite what it seems . . . and no one can be trusted.

Review:

I can see why so many people are enthusiastic about Yrsa's work. It's very engaging, fresh and exciting. (James Patterson)

A grisly chiller set in the depths of winter ... Her mystery is absorbing and, untypically, instead of the usual gloomy middle-aged man, her sleuth is a young woman ... It's an accomplished debut, with credible characters and a personable heroine. (Sunday Telegraph)

Dark, deep and icy as an Icelandic fjord; this is a rich and rewarding debut novel of ancient mysteries and very modern murder. (Mark Billingham)

An intricately plotted tale that keeps the reader guessing whodunit, or indeed whether it was murder at all, right until the very end. (Sunday Express)

Book Description:

A grisly, chilling Icelandic thriller from a fantastic new voice in crime fiction.
