'The engaging Ari Thor returns in this darkly claustrophobic tale. Perfect mid-winter reading' Ann Cleeves

A blizzard is approaching Siglufjoerdur, and that can only mean one thing...



When the body of a nineteen-year-old girl is found on the main street of Siglufjoerdur, Police Inspector Ari Thor battles a violent Icelandic storm in an increasingly dangerous hunt for her killer ... The chilling, claustrophobic finale to the international bestselling Dark Iceland series.



Easter weekend is approaching, and snow is gently falling in Siglufjoerdur, the northernmost town in Iceland, as crowds of tourists arrive to visit the majestic ski slopes.



Ari Thor Arason is now a police inspector, but he's separated from his girlfriend, who lives in Sweden with their three-year-old son. A family reunion is planned for the holiday, but a violent blizzard is threatening and there is an unsettling chill in the air.



Three days before Easter, a nineteen-year-old local girl falls to her death from the balcony of a house on the main street. A perplexing entry in her diary suggests that this may not be an accident, and when an old man in a local nursing home writes 'She was murdered' again and again on the wall of his room, there is every suggestion that something more sinister lies at the heart of her death...



As the extreme weather closes in, cutting the power and access to Siglufjoerdur, Ari Thor must piece together the puzzle to reveal a horrible truth ... one that will leave no one unscathed.



Chilling, claustrophobic and disturbing, Winterkill is a startling addition to the multi-million-copy bestselling Dark Iceland series and cements Ragnar Jonasson as one of the most exciting and acclaimed authors in crime fiction.
