From bestselling Icelandic author Yrsa Sigurdardottir comes a series of Scandinavian police procedurals featuring detective Huldar, who, in over-his-head after a brutal murder where a child’s the only witness, seeks the expertise of Freyja, a psychologist who deals with traumatized young people at the Children’s House. “[A] relentlessly paced series launch…Few readers will be able to put down this powerful tale of revenge.”—Publishers Weekly (starred) on the first installment, The Legacy.

Her work is found on bestseller lists all over the world, and films are currently in production for several of her books. Her titles include, The Day is Dark and Ashes to Dust.
