Ragnar's best written book, filled with psychological horror and underlying rage. Hulda Hermannsdottir is a welcome addition to the selection of Icelandic crime fiction protagonists . . . It is almost impossible to put the book down until the last word has been read (Fréttablaðið)

Ragnar's best book yet (Kiljan, literary TV show)

The threads lie in various places, the plot is well woven and the pieces in the puzzle come
together well in the end. The structure is good, the main characters are believable, the story flows
well, everyone is a suspect á la Agatha Christie and the solution unveils the mystery and leads the
readers to the truth. But not all the truth, as some things are better left hidden

(Morgunbladid)

Dark, chilling and utterly gripping, The Island is Nordic noir at its best, and is destined to become a classic of the genre. I couldn't put it down. I can't wait to read the rest of the Hulda series! (Shari Lapena, bestselling author of The Couple Next Door)

Ragnar Jónasson writes with a chilling, poetic beauty - a must-read addition to the growing canon of Iceland Noir (Peter James)

His clues are traditional and beautifully finessed - and he keeps you turning the pages (The Independent, on Snowblind)

Distinctive blend of Nordic noir and golden age detective fiction...atmospheric...economical and evocative prose (The Guardian, on Nightblind)

Seductive ... an old-fashioned murder mystery with a strong central character and the fascinating background of a small Icelandic town cut off by snow. Ragnar does claustrophobia beautifully (Ann Cleeves)

The ending hits the reader like a kick in the stomach (FRÉTTATIMINN)

Jonasson's books have breathed new life into Nordic noir ...all the skilful plotting of an old-fashioned whodunit although it feels bitingly contemporary in setting and tone (Sunday Express)











If you liked And Then There Were None, The ABC Murders, and Nordic noir you'll love this . . .

'The ending really took my breath away and that's hard for writers to do to me these days . . . I should have seen it coming' Ian Rankin

PRE-ORDER THE EXPLOSIVE NEW NOVEL FROM THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR
_____________

Four friends visit the island.

But only three return . . .

Detective Inspector Hulda Hermannsdóttir is sent to the isolated island of Elliðaey to investigate and soon finds haunting similarities with a previous case - a young woman found murdered ten years ago in the equally desolate Westfjords.

Is there a patient killer stalking these barren outposts?

As Hulda navigates a sinister game constructed of smoke and mirrors she is convinced that no one is telling the truth, including those closest to her.

But who will crack first? And what secrets is the island hiding?

Haunting, suspenseful and as chilling as an Icelandic winter The Island follows one woman's journey to find the truth hidden in the darkest shadows, and shine a light on her own dark past.
