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)

Few writers at work today conjure atmosphere with such power, or plot their mysteries with such craft. The Island is his best book yet, an unflinching thriller that braids past and present, good and evil, love and loss. I can't wait for Hulda Hermannsdóttir's next case (A. J. Finn, bestselling author of The Woman in the Window)

No one does isolation better than Ragnar Jonasson, who is superb at portraying Iceland's stark landscape and savage beauty . . . [Hulda Hermannsdottir is] an excellent addition to the growing band of top-class women detectives (The Times)

Prepare to be swept away to the beautiful yet unforgiving island of Elliðaey in Jónasson's latest Icelandic noir. Atmospheric and creepy, Jónasson successfully keeps you guessing till the bittersweet end (Heat)

A chilling novel about people with dark secrets, protecting themselves without a thought for the consequences. (Sunday Times)

We heart the melancholy Hulda (Sunday Times Crime Club)

A strikingly evoked picture of Iceland's forbidding beauty...Hulda Hermansdottir is a striking character - both gloomy and tenacious - and she is a key reason for the success of this atmospheric novel (Barry Forshaw)

This kept me guessing right up until the final pages. I loved the vivid landscapes, brilliant characterisation and intricate plotting. Bravo! (Liz Nugent, bestselling author of Skin Deep)

Consider this one of the author's best plots, layered with that dour Scandinavian atmosphere we love (New York Times)

Ragnar Jonasson is the Stephen King of Icelandic thrillers (Reader Review)











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

Has a patient killer struck again?

But Hulda is soon caught in a web of deceit, convinced everyone is lying, even those closest to her.

What secrets is the island hiding?

And what price will she pay for uncovering the truth?
