About the Author

YRSA SIGURDARDOTTIR lives with her family in Reykjavik; she is also a director of one of Iceland's largest engineering firms.


"Excellent... Sigurdardottir uses Iceland's past and present to full effect in this tale of hidden crimes and family secrets. Even those unfamiliar with this volcanic island nation will find themselves entranced." --Publishers Weekly (starred)"Buried under all the volcanic ash, false trails and endless recriminations is a puzzle whose grim solution is worthy of Stieg Larsson." --Kirkus"This darkly atmospheric psychological suspense is full of unusual characters, as well as numerous surprising twists and turns.""A fine mix of crime and vividly realized landscape." --Booklist"Icelandic volcanic explosion provides a timely background... the chaos and panic caused by the 1973 eruption are vividly evoked in Yrsa Sigurdardottir's novel." --The Independent (UK) "A fascinating setting and realistic characters make this an engrossing read -- and Sigurdardottir maintains the intrigue as her clever plot unravels." --Metro (UK)"Iceland's answer to Stieg Larsson." --The Telegraph (UK) on the Novels of Yrsa Sigurdardottir"Stands comparison with the finest contemporary crime writing anywhere in the world." --The Times Literary Supplement (UK) on the Novels of Yrsa Sigurdardottir"Sigurdardottir delivers terrific clammy atmosphere and frequent frissons of fear; she is entitled to join the front rank of Nordic crime writers." --The Times (UK) on the Novels of Yrsa Sigurdardottir"Brilliantly plotted and chilling." --The Daily Mirror (UK) on the Novels of Yrsa Sigurdardottir"Thora is an attractive heroine; she's practical, capable and intelligent as well as having a dry sense of humor and an enquiring mind....She's curious about everything." on Last Rituals"The writing is distinguished by superb evocations of extraordinary landscapes." --The Independent (UK) on My Soul to Take"Icelandic attorney Thora Gudmundsdottir is a clever and astute woman, and a welcome addition to the pantheon of fictional female investigators." --RT Book Reviews (four stars) on My Soul to Take
