A chilling new case for Thora Gudmundsdottir, from Iceland's answer to Stieg Larsson.

When all contact is lost with two Icelanders working in a harsh and sparsely populated area on the northeast coast of Greenland, Thora is hired to investigate.

Is there any connection with the woman who vanished from the site some months earlier? Why are the locals so hostile? And could one of the team staying at the site with Thora be responsible for the disappearances?

Already an international bestseller, this fourth book to feature Thora Gudmundsdottir ('a delight' - Guardian) is chilling, unsettling and compulsively readable.

The Thing - - Icelandic style? Not quite as good writing as her previous mysteries, a bit slower and more tedius, perhaps not the best translation job, but just love her laid-back style. (Proper spelling is Sigurdardóttir, proper Icelandic pronunciation is: sirisdottir)
