Reviews

Praise for Yrsa Sigurdardottir - :

The undisputed Queen of Icelandic Noir
*Simon Kernick*

Nail-biting . . . Iceland's long dark nights are at their most minatory in Sigurdardottir's atmospheric thrillers
*Financial Times*

One of the best books I've read for a long time: dark, creepy, and gripping from beginning to end
*Stuart MacBride*

Sigurdardottir is as confident a writer as ever
*The Sunday Times*

Praise for The Prey - :

Sigurdardottir's novels are always suffused with a sense of unease and her characters struggle with mental turmoil as well as hostile conditions. Lyrical landscape descriptions combine with intimations of terrible events in the past in this haunting story
*Sunday Times CULTURE*

If you like your chilling thrillers ice-cold and with an epic plot twist, then look no further . . . another atmospheric, twisty thrill-fest from Sigurdardottir
*Heat*

Sigurdardottir is a skilled hand and ties all her threads and twists together neatly, but it's her thrilling tale of a struggle to survive in freezing temperatures, under a sky that never seems to lighten, that provides the real chill factor here
*Observer*

This Icelandic writer is the real horror deal
*Peterborough Telegraph*

A supernatural Icelandic thriller that'll chill you to the bone
*Buzz Magazine*

The Prey is an extraordinarily creepy mystery. Sigurdardottir can make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up whether describing the weird and wintry terrain of southern Iceland or the odd behaviour of a cat called Puss. The outer darkness reflects that within the characters. One of the doomed hikers asks herself: "Was there no end to the wretchedness and cruelty of the world?" The answer she receives will make your blood run cold
*The Times*

Mesmerising and atmospheric, with entrancing descriptions of landscape
*The Sunday Times (Culture)*
