The Times The second book from Yrsa Sigurdardottir is funny as well as being a taut and accomplished novel. -- Books of the Year Independent Yrsa Sigurdardottir brilliantly conjures an atmosphere of creeping menace and unreality. Guardian The numerous twists and turns are worthy of Agatha Christie and keep the reader guessing until the very end. Sunday Telegraph
