Book Details

With three million copies of his books sold worldwide, "world-class crime writer"(The Sunday Times, UK) Ragnar Jónasson brings us a chilling new standalone thriller with Outside.

Four friends. One night. Not everyone will come out alive . . .

When a deadly snowstorm strikes the Icelandic highlands, four friends seek shelter in a small, abandoned hunting lodge.

It is in the middle of nowhere and there's no way of communicating with the outside world.

They are isolated, but they are not alone . . .

As the night darkens, and fears intensify, an old tragedy gradually surfaces - one that forever changed the course of their friendship.

Those dark memories could hold the key to the mystery the friends now find themselves in.

And whether they will survive until morning . . .

Praise for Outside:

"Icelandic author Jónasson, known for the Dark Iceland and Hulda series, offers an intense standalone, taking to new heights his unrivaled skill for using winter as an unpredictable plot-twister...There is so much to like here: the complexity of the quartet’s relationships, Jónasson’s powerful, streamlined writing, and the parallels between an unforgiving setting and the characters' seething grudges. Readers will be drawn into Jónasson’s forbidding Iceland landscape, where it’s anyone’s guess who will make it out alive." —Booklist (starred review)

"[An] excruciatingly slow-motion avalanche in which it’s obvious from the beginning that “something’s got to die before we finish this trip”; the only questions are who, how many, under what circumstances, and at whose hands....A shivery delight." —Kirkus Reviews

"This book has a quality and cleverly constructed plot...it’s entertaining, suspenseful and twisty." —Mystery Tribune

"One of the best crime writers on the planet." —Mike Lupica, New York Times bestselling author

“Brilliantly entertaining, captivating the reader from page one. Impossible to put down.” —Frettabladid newspaper (Iceland)

“Ragnar Jónasson is the Nordic author of the moment.” —Vogue (Scandinavia)

"Is this the best crime writer in the world today? If you're looking for a mystery to get lost in during lockdown..." —The Times, UK on The Girl Who Died

“A world-class crime writer...one of the most astonishing plots in modern crime fiction...The Mist is a triumphant conclusion to the trilogy and makes Iceland’s pre-eminence in the crime genre even more marked....Jónasson is up there with the best.” —The Sunday Times, UK

“Jónasson is an automatic must-read for me ... possibly the best Scandi writer working today.” —Lee Child, internationally bestselling author of the Jack Reacher thrillers
