Ysra Sigurdardóttir

We are delighted to welcome one of the world’s leading crime writers to Bute.

The first in her Thóra Gudmundsdöttir series was Last Rituals, published in Iceland in 2005 and in the UK in 2008.

Her latest book, The Reckoning, features her new series characters child psychologist Freyja and police detective Huldar.  When a school time capsule is recovered, it reveals a horrifying secret – a murder list.
