Put simply, it's terrifying. And brilliant. - Stylist
As with the other books in this series there is humour and warmth. Atmospheric, complex and compelling with an unexpected ending. - www.shotsmag.co.uk
This Nordic mystery proves colder, bleaker and more introspective than most: Scandi-noir extreme. - i Magazine, Independent
Publishers and blurb writers are competing to hail the new monarch of Nordic crime fiction . . . I would be tempted to offer a name not from the obvious crime soil of Sweden or Norway, but from bleak and moody Iceland . . . - Marcel Berlins, The Times
Superbly atmospheric - Heat
The twists and turns are as chilling as the weather . . . [a] pageturner - Bella
It's another complex case for Thora, liveliest granny on the floes, and deeply satisfying for the warm-toed reader. - Independent
