Review:

'British aficionados of Nordic Noir are familiar with two excellent Icelandic writers, Arnaldur Indridason and Yrsa Sigurdardottir. Here's a third: Ragnar Jonasson... the darkness and cold are palpable' - Marcel Berlins, The Times

'Totally gripped. Even more satisfying is how the characters are never just there as pawns in the plot' - Ian Rankin

'There will be no better way to start the year than by reading Nightblind by Ragnar Jonasson. Not only does the northern Icelandic setting make the British winter weather seem tolerable, but Jonasson's books have breathed new life into Nordic noir' - Jake Kerridge, Sunday Express

'Jonasson plays fair with the reader his clues are traditional and beautifully finessed and he keeps you turning the pages. Snowblind is morally more equivocal than most traditional whodunnits, and it offers alluring glimpses of darker, and infinitely more threatening horizons' - Independent

'A tiny, segregated town is a superb setting for a crime novel, and Jonasson exploits it well. He builds a layered mystery featuring a series of unhealthy secrets, and past crimes buried deep in the sheltered, almost claustrophobic recesses of family life, which Ari Thor will pay a high price for unravelling' - Crime Thriller Journal

'Ragnar Jonasson does claustrophobia beautifully' - Ann Cleeves

'Once again an intriguing, Christie-esque mystery that hooks the reader immediately, drawing them in with the beautiful landscapes and addictive characters a style that Ragnar seems to have already made his trademark' - Reading Room with a View

'Completely and utterly charmed by this series. I really don't know how Ragnar Jonasson and his translator, Quentin Bates have done it. It is beautifully crafted and just terribly addictive' - Northern Crime

'As with any good mystery, you never quite know who to trust and, more importantly, who not to, and this shifts and moves as the story progresses. You can almost feel the chill seeping out of the pages. It's a classic page-turner, demanding just one more' --Espressococo
