The first in an exciting new series from the author of THE SILENCE OF THE SEA, winner of the 2015 Petrona Award for best Scandinavian Crime Novel.

The murder was meant as a punishment - but what sin could justify the method?

The only person who might have answers is the victim's seven-year-old daughter, found hiding in the room where her mother died. And she's not talking.

Newly promoted, out of his depth, detective Huldar turns to Freyja and the Children's House for their expertise with traumatised young people. Freyja, who distrusts the police in general and Huldar in particular, isn't best pleased. But she's determined to keep little Margret safe.

It may prove tricky. The killer is leaving them strange clues: warnings in text messages, sums scribbled on bits of paper, numbers broadcast on the radio. He's telling a dark and secret story - but how can they crack the code? And if they do, will they be next?

Review:

Iceland's outstanding crime novelist (Daily Express)

The Legacy takes us into a world where secrets are buried deep, only to reappear decades later and inflict harm on people who have no idea that they're connected by past horrors. Yrsa is a magnificent writer who envelops her stories with atmosphere so thick that only care and a bit of luck can see through it. Her characters spring vividly to life as they try their best to do just that, knowing that any mistake could be deadly for another innocent person. Impossible to put down. (Karin Slaughter)

The Legacy is the start of an exciting new direction for Yrsa Sigurdardottir. The horror of a decades-old family separation provides the catalyst for dark crimes and a complex investigation. The Children's House promises to be an outstanding series. (Sarah Ward, author of In Bitter Chill)

We have always been able to rely on Yrsa Sigurdardóttir for a good story well told, and The Legacy is no exception. A strong sense of place, interesting characters and a chilling plot make The Legacy a novel to savour. (Peter Robinson)

Yrsa remains the queen of Icelandic thriller writers (Guardian on THE LEGACY)

5*s - Believe all the hype - this is crime at its best. (Heat Magazine on THE LEGACY)

If you like your crime fiction dark and engaging, look no further. THE LEGACY is as brutal as it gets. A cracking start to a new series by Yrsa Sigurdardottir. (Mari Hannah, author of the DCI Kate Daniels series)

Another tour de force from Sigurdardottir that cements her reputation as the queen of Nordic noir (i Paper in THE LEGACY)

The conclusion is even more astounding, thanks to her white-hot plotting. (CrimeFiction Lover on THE LEGACY)

The connecting thread in all the writer's work is her astuteness in observing human relations, the everyday mixed with the dark and devious. (The ArtsDesk on THE LEGACY)
