This horrifying thriller, partly based on a true story, is the scariest novel yet from an international bestseller.

The crunching noise had resumed, now accompanied by a disgusting, indefinable smell. It could best be described as a blend of kelp and rotten meat. The voice spoke again, now slightly louder and clearer: "Don't go. Don't go yet. I'm not finished."

In an isolated village in the Icelandic Westfjords, three friends set to work renovating a derelict house. But soon they realise they are not alone there - something wants them to leave, and it's making its presence felt.

Meanwhile, in a town across the fjord, a young doctor investigating the suicide of an elderly woman discovers that she was obsessed with his vanished son. When the two stories collide the terrifying truth is uncovered...

Praise for I Remember You

  • A chilling ghost story . . . the queen of Icelandic crime writing swerves into new territory with I REMEMBER YOU - a don't-read-it-in-the-dark ghost story . . . Things get seriously scary. - Marie Claire

  • Yrsa Sigurdardottir's chillers get better and better. I REMEMBER YOU is a truly creepy combination of haunted house story and modern detection in Iceland. - Sunday Telegraph

  • . . . A chiller-thriller of immense scariness . . . Not to be read alone after dark. - The Times

  • Expertly woven together, with plenty of cliffhangers and perfect control of the macabre mood: intriguing, entertaining, and very spooky indeed. - Laura Wilson, Guardian

  • Genuinely bone-chilling, and proves that as well as being the queen of Icelandic crime fiction, Sigurdardottir is a supreme generator of fear . . . (she) is clearly relishing the business of scaring our pants off. - Independent

  • Sigur?ard?ttir intertwines these plotlines brilliantly and the two creepy strands gradually tighten together to really give the reader the heebie-jeebies. The author comes from a crime and thriller background and you can tell: there are cliff-hangers at the end of almost every chapter and she expertly ramps up the feeling of dread as the plot accelerates and all in the book find themselves in mortal danger. - Big Issue

  • A chilling read, perfect for a dark night - Daily Express

  • A true rollercoaster of a chiller . . . This is very different from the Nordic crime one might expect. The macabre sense and unusual crimes bring to mind Jo Nesbo, but this is something so much darker still. A horror with a whodunit sensibility, this is a must-buy for Hallowe'en and beyond. - We Love This Book
