Ragnar Jonasson

author of the Dark Iceland series

“Dark, chilling and utterly gripping, The Island is Nordic noir at its best, and is destined to become a classic of the genre. I couldn’t put it down. I can’t wait to read the rest of the Hulda series!”

THE ISLAND
BOOK NO 2 IN THE HIDDEN ICELAND SERIES
2019 - Penguin UK / Macmillan US

Elliðaey is an isolated island off the Icelandic coast. It has a beautiful, unforgiving terrain - and an easy place to vanish.

At the peak of her career Hulda Hermannsdóttir is sent to discover what happened when a group of friends visited Elliðaey - but one failed to return.

Could this have links to the disappearance of a couple ten years previously out on the Westfjords? Is there a killer stalking these barren outposts?

Written with Ragnar's haunting and suspenseful prose The Island follows Hulda's journey to uncover the island's secrets and find the truth hidden in its darkest shadows.
