In Yrsa Sigurdardottir’s internationally bestselling crime fiction novels, set in the beautiful and atmospheric Iceland, sharp-witted attorney Thora Gudmundsdottir takes the lead. Yrsa has been called “a generator of fear quite as adroit as such writers as Stephen King” and her novels are equally well-plotted and darkly suspenseful. The Thora Gudmundsdottir series, including the thrillers The Silence of the Sea and Ashes to Dust, has been translated into more than 30 languages.
YRSA SIGURDARDÓTTIR (pronounced UR-suh SIG-ur-dar-daughter) lives with her family in Reykjavík; she is also a director of one of Iceland's largest engineering firms. 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.
