Yrsa Sigurdardóttir's Iceland Novels on SCENE OF THE CRIME

Land of Fire and Ice (and Crime): Yrsa Sigurdardóttir’s Iceland



Yrsa Sigurdardóttir, Icelandic crime novelist, joins us today on Scene of the Crime. The author of numerous children’s books, Yrsa has also written a popular
crime series featuring lawyer and single mother of two, Thóra
Gudmundsdóttir. Of the five that have been poublished in her native
country, two have thus far appeared in English translation, Last
Rituals
and My Soul to Take. The third, Ashes to Dust,
appears this summer in English.

Yrsa’s books have won critical acclaim not only in Iceland, but also abroad. Publishers Weekly finds her work “engaging,” and further states that the author “keeps readers guessing.” Similarly, the
London Observer calls her work “both frightening and funny – a
