Bestselling and award-winning Icelandic crime author Yrsa Sigurdardottir is back with the next book in her Thóra Gudmundsdóttir series. SOMEONE TO WATCH OVER ME, the fifth installment in the Thóra Gudmundsdóttir series, was named Crime Novel of the Year by the Sunday Times.
A young man with Down's Syndrome has been convicted of burning down his assisted living facility and killing five people, but a fellow inmate at his secure psychiatric unit has hired Thora to prove Jakob is innocent. If he didn't do it, who did? And how is the multiple murder connected to the death of a young woman, killed in what was supposed to be a hit-and-run?
Sigurjon Sighvatsson—a veteran producer with over 40 feature films and television series to his credit—plans to start shooting I REMEMBER YOU, her stand-alone ghost story (March 2014), in early 2014 in Iceland. He has also optioned the rights to the Thóra Gudmundsdóttir series which will be a TV series in the English language.
