My Soul To Take, A Novel Of Iceland. (Thra Gudmundsdttir)
Publish Date: 2009-04-28
Author: Yrsa Sigurdardottir
Top notch crime fiction.
American readers first met Icelandic lawyer and investigator Thra Gudmundsdttir in Last Rituals. In My Soul to Take, internationally acclaimed author Yrsa Sigurdardttir plunges her intrepid heroine into even graver peril, in a riveting thriller set against the harsh landscape of Smilas Sense of Snow territory. A darkly witty and continually surprising suspense tale that places Yrsa Sigurdardttir 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.
