Whiteout

(2017)
(The fifth book in the Dark Iceland series)
A novel by

 
 
Two days before Christmas, a young woman is found dead beneath the cliffs of the deserted village of Kalfshamarvik. Did she jump, or did something more sinister take place beneath the lighthouse and the abandoned old house on the remote rocky outcrop?

With winter closing in and the snow falling relentlessly, Ari Thor Arason discovers that the victim's mother and young sister also lost their lives in this same spot, twenty-five years earlier.

Dark, chilling and complex, Whiteout is a haunting, atmospheric and stunningly plotted thriller from one of Iceland's bestselling crime writers.

'Traditional and beautifully finessed ... morally more equivocal than most traditional whodunnits, and it offers alluring glimpses of darker, and infinitely more threatening horizons' Andrew Taylor, Independent

'Jonasson's books have breathed new life into Nordic noir' Sunday Express

'British aficionados of Nordic Noir are familiar with two excellent Icelandic writers, Arnaldur Indridason and Yrsa Sigurdardottir. Here's a third: Ragnar Jonasson ... the darkness and cold are palpable' Marcel Berlins, Times

'A chiller of a thriller' Carol Memmott, Washington Post

'A classic crime story seen through a uniquely Icelandic lens ... first rate and highly recommended' Lee Child

'Ragnar Jonasson writes with a chilling, poetic beauty - a must-read' Peter James
