My Soul to Take
A Novel of IcelandBook - 2009
"Top notch crime fiction." --Boston Globe American readers first met Icelandic lawyer and investigator Th#65533;ra Gudmundsd#65533;ttir in Last Rituals. In My Soul to Take, internationally acclaimed author Yrsa Sigurdard#65533;ttir plunges her intrepid heroine into even graver peril, in a riveting thriller set against the harsh landscape of Smila's Sense of Snow territory. A darkly witty and continually surprising suspense tale that places Yrsa Sigurdard#65533;ttir firmly in the ranks of Sue Grafton, Tess Gerritsen, Faye Kellerman and other top mystery writers, My Soul to Take is ingenious Scandinavian noir on a par with the works of Henning Mankell and Arnaldur Indridason. Stieg Larsson (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) fans should also take note.
