Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Autumn of 1987 takes a young couple on a romantic trip in the Westfjords holiday―a trip that gets an unexpected ending and has catastrophic consequences. Ten years later a small group of friends go for a weekend in an old hunting lodge in Elliðaey. A place completely cut off from the outside world, to reconnect. But one of them isn't going to make it out alive. And Detective Inspector Hulda Hermannsdóttir is determined to find the truth in the darkness. Ragnar Jonasson burst onto the American scene with Snowblind and Nightblind, the first two novels in the Ari Thor thriller series, and the praise was overwhelming. With The Darkness, he launched a new series featuring a completely new sleuth, Detective Inspector Hulda Hermannsdottir of the Reykjavik Police department. The Island is the second book in this series.

    Ten years ago, Katla's body was found at her family's Westfjords vacation house, and her father was arrested for her murder. Now, on the tenth anniversary of the crime, Katla's brother, Dagur, and their childhood friends Klara, Alexandra, and Benedikt have reunited for a weekend on a scenic but isolated island. Despite the idyllic location, painful reminders of Katla's death overshadow their gathering, and they are grateful to depart. On the morning of their departure, however, Klara goes missing, and their frantic search reveals her body beneath a cliff. Reykjavik CID Inspector Hulda Hermannsdóttir (introduced in The Darkness, 2018) is immediately suspicious that Klara's death wasn't an accident. Hulda is certain that the four friends are lying to her about why they've reunited, and Klala's autopsy reveals she was strangled. It's short work for Hulda to uncover the connection to Katla's murder and to find disturbing inconsistencies in her colleagues' case against her father. Another suspense-laden Icelandic gem: Jónasson's confidential, intimate prose evokes both Iceland's harsh, beautiful solitude and the deep connections Icelanders forge.
