Recensioner i media

The second book from Yrsa Sigurdardottir is funny as well as being a taut and accomplished novel Independent, Books of the Year 'Yrsa Sigurdardottir brilliantly conjures an atmosphere of creeping menace and unreality.' Guardian This is well-written, pacey and wonderfully atmospheric, but the USP here is the character of Gudmundsdottir. Wry, very funny and valiantly trying to balance the demands of her private life with her work - she is a joy. I'm looking forward to number three. Guardian Sigurdardotittir delivers terrific clammy atmosphere and frequent frissons of fear; she is entitled to join the front rank of Nordic crime writers. The Times Both frightening and funny - a terrific trick if you can pull it off. Observer Distinguished by superb evocations of extraordinary landscapes and ... rivetingly gruesome inventiveness. Independent The numerous twists and turns are worthy of Agatha Christie and keep the reader guessing until the very end. Sunday Telegraph A suspenseful, sophisticated story Sunday Telegraph A welcome second outing for the good-natured lawyer-sleuth Thora Gudmundsdottir ... Yrsa Sigurdardottir's lightness of touch is refreshing Daily Telegraph on MY SOUL TO TAKE The novel is both spooky and gruesome. But Thora's distinctly chaotic private life provides a welcome contrast and moments of very black humour ... It's rare to find a crime novel that's both chilling and witty - an agreeable combination Andrew Taylor, Spectator Dark, rich and satisfying. Woman & Home Yrsa Sigurdardottir has arrived, fully formed, it seems, as something of a unique talent in the field ... [She] matches Tess Gerritsen and Kathy Reichs in the bloodchiller stakes. Waterstone's Books Quarterly 'Iceland is fast becoming a hotbed of fine crime writing, and Sigurdardottir is at the front of the pack. This second novel builds on her already impressive reputation ... brilliantly paced and expertly constructed.' The Big Issue More splendidly accomplished - and involving - fare from Sigurdardottir Good Book Guide
