Yrsa Sigurdardottir works as a civil engineer and lives in Reykjavik. She wrote prize-winning children's novels before writing LAST RITUALS, her first adult novel.
Publishers and blurb writers are competing to hail the new monarch of Nordic crime fiction. I would be tempted to offer a name not from the obvious crime soil of Sweden or Norway, but from bleak and moody Iceland... Marcel Berlins, The Times A chilling read, enhanced by Sigurdardottir's taut plotting, realistic characters, and dry humour. Metro Crime Books of the Year Stands comparison with the finest contemporary crime writing anywhere in the world TLS I can see why so many people are enthusiastic about Yrsa's work. It's very engaging, fresh and exciting. James Patterson (on LAST RITUALS) She is entitled to join the front ranks of Nordic crime writers. The Times A fascinating setting and realistic characters make this an engrossing read - and Sigurdardottir maintains the intrigue as her clever plot unravels Metro Brilliantly plotted and chilling Daily Mirror An absorbing mystery ... Sigurdardottir makes the island under hot lava just as atmospherically chilling as she made Iceland's dark winters in her two prior novels The Times Iceland's answer to Stieg Larsson Daily Telegraph 'With its extraordinarily unexpected, but well-plotted, ending, ASHES TO DUST is a good entry in this consistently interesting and enjoyable series with its believable and amusing heroine. I look forward to seeing where THE DAY IS DARK takes us.' eurocrime.co.uk
