(No reviews yet) Write a 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


Four friends visited the island.

But only three return . . .

When Icelandic Detective Inspector Hulda Hermannsdottir is sent to the isolated island of Ellidaey to investigate a disappearance she finds haunting similarities to a previous case - a young woman murdered ten years ago in the desolate Westfjords.

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?

'One of the greatest tragic heroines of contemporary detective fiction' Sunday Times

'Magnificently dark and twisted' C. J. Tudor, bestselling author of The Chalk Man

'Ragnar Jonasson writes with a chilling, poetic beauty - a must-read addition to the growing canon of Iceland Noir' Peter James, bestselling author of Love You Dead

'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' Shari Lapena, bestselling author of The Couple Next Door

'Out of all of Ragnar's books this is the one I like the most . . . The book of his which reminds me most of Agatha Christie' Kilian

Praise for Ragnar Jonasson

'A distinctive blend of Nordic noir and golden age detective fiction . . . atmospheric and evocative prose' Guardian on Nightblind

'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

'His clues are traditional and beautifully finessed - and he keeps you turning the pages' Independent on Snowblind
