Publisher's Summary

The fourth installment in the international best-selling Dark Iceland series

Over a million copies sold worldwide 

With a stalker on the loose and the town of Siglufjörður in quarantine, a child goes missing, as Icelandic police officer Ari Thór Arason investigates a cold case of a mysterious death on an isolated fjord....

"Bitingly contemporary in setting and tone." (Express

"A modern take on an Agatha Christie-style mystery, as twisty as any slalom...." (Ian Rankin) 

1955. Two young couples move to the uninhabited, isolated fjord of Hedinsfjörður. Their stay ends abruptly when one of the women meets her death in mysterious circumstances. The case is never solved. Fifty years later an old photograph comes to light, and it becomes clear that the couples may not have been alone on the fjord after all....

In nearby Siglufjörður, young policeman Ari Thór tries to piece together what really happened that fateful night, in a town where no one wants to know, where secrets are a way of life. He’s assisted by Ísrún, a news reporter in Reykjavik, who is investigating an increasingly chilling case of her own. Things take a sinister turn when a child goes missing in broad daylight. With a stalker on the loose, and the town of Siglufjörður in quarantine, the past might just come back to haunt them. 

Haunting, frightening and complex, Rupture is a dark and atmospheric thriller from one of Iceland’s foremost crime writers.

"Traditional and beautifully finessed…morally more equivocal than most traditional whodunnits, and it offers alluring glimpses of darker, and infinitely more threatening horizons." (Independent

"A distinctive blend of Nordic Noir and Golden Age detective fiction…economical and evocative prose, as well as some masterful prestidigitation." (Laura Wilson, Guardian)

"A classic crime story seen through a uniquely Icelandic lens…first rate and highly recommended." (Lee Child)

This book seemed familiar

I think this book may have been published earlier under a different name? As I listen to this novel it sounded so familiar and I was always one step ahead like I had heard it before.
