Publisher's Summary

When the body of a 19-year-old girl is found on the main street of Siglufjörður, Police Inspector Ari Thór battles a violent Icelandic storm in an increasingly dangerous hunt for her killer.... The chilling, claustrophobic finale to the international best-selling Dark Iceland series.

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

Ari Thór 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 19-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 Siglufjörður, Ari Thór must piece together the puzzle to reveal a horrible truth...one that will leave no one unscathed. 

Chilling, claustrophobic and disturbing, Winterkill marks the startling conclusion to the million-copy best-selling Dark Iceland series and cements Ragnar Jónasson as one of the most exciting authors in crime fiction.

Disappointed

I have loved reading all of the Hidden and Dark Iceland series by Ragnar Jonasson, however was disappointed with this book. The parallel narrative of a current and historic crime lacked the usual twists which occur in the other books by this author.

What a disappointment

Had it not been that I’d read the preceding five books I would’ve asked for a refund for this. I suspect it was badly translated but in any case it read like a first draft. The story was weak and the characters who in previous books of the series had seemed engaging were stilted and clichéd. Whoever edited this should have been fired. I shan t be seeking out any other books by this author.

Disappointed

I’ve loved this series, and this wasn’t bad, but the amount of pointless repeats just so annoying. And, in the end, the plot was only worthy of a a tv series like Midsomer. Do, perfectly pleasant listen, but sadly disappointing for the final outing of my dear Ari Thor. 😞
