Synopsis

1955. Two young couples move to the uninhabited, isolated fjord of Hedinsfjoerdur. Their stay ends abruptly when one of the women meets her death in mysterious circumstances. The case is never solved. Fifty years later an old photograph comes to light, and it becomes clear that the couples may not have been alone on the fjord after all...



In nearby Siglufjoerdur, young policeman Ari Thor tries to piece together what really happened that fateful night, in a town where no one wants to know, where secrets are a way of life. With a stalker on the loose, and the town of Siglufjoerdur in quarantine, the past might just come back to haunt them.



Haunting, frightening and complex, Rupture is a dark and atmospheric thriller from one of Iceland's foremost crime writers.



`Traditional and beautifully finessed... morally more equivocal than most traditional whodunnits, and it offers alluring glimpses of darker, and infinitely more threatening horizons' Independent



'British aficionados of Nordic Noir are familiar with two excellent Icelandic writers, Arnaldur Indridason and Yrsa Sigurdardottir. Here's a third: Ragnar Jonasson ... the darkness and cold are palpable' Marcel Berlins, Times



`A distinctive blend of Nordic Noir and Golden Age detective fiction ... economical and evocative prose, as well as some masterful prestidigitation' Laura Wilson, Guardian



`A modern take on an Agatha Christie-style mystery, as twisty as any slalom...' Ian Rankin



`A classic crime story seen through a uniquely Icelandic lens ... first rate and highly recommended' Lee Child

Icelandic crime writer Ragnar Jonasson was born in Reykjavik, and currently works as a lawyer, while teacher copyright law at the Reykjavik University Law School. In the past, he's worked in TV and radio, including as a news reporter for the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service. Before embarking on a writing career, Ragnar translated fourteen Agatha Christie novels into Icelandic, and has had several short stories published in German, English and Icelandic literary magazines. Ragnar set up the first overseas chapter of the CWA (Crime Writers' Association) in Reykjavik, and is co-founder of the International crime-writing festival Iceland Noir. Ragnar's debut thriller, Snowblind became an almost instant bestseller when it was published in June 2015 with Nightblind (winner of the Dead Good Reads Most Captivating Crime in Translation Award) and then Blackout and Rupture following soon after. To date, Ragnar Jonasson has written five novels in the Dark Iceland series, which has been optioned for TV by On the Corner. He lives in Reykjavik with his wife and two daughters.
