Product description

Review

''A classic crime story . . .first-rate and highly recommended.'' --Lee Child

''A modern Icelandic take on an Agatha Christie-style mystery, as twisty as any slalom...'' --Ian Rankin

''Jonasson skillfully alternates points of view and shifts of time...The action builds to a shattering climax.''--Publishers Weekly (boxed and starred)

''If a Golden Age crime novel was to emerge from a literary deep freeze then you'd hope it would read like this.'' --Craig Robertson

''Seductive … an old-fashioned murder mystery with a strong central character and the fascinating background of a small Icelandic town cut off by snow. Ragnar does claustrophobia beautifully.'' --Ann Cleeves

''Jonasson spins an involving tale of small town police work that vividly captures the snowy setting that so affects the rookie cop. Iceland noir at its moodiest.''--Booklist

''As dazzling a novel as its title implies and the wonderful Ari Thor is a welcome addition to the pantheon of Scandinavian detectives. I can't wait until the sequel!'' --William Ryan

''Ragnar Jónasson writes with a chilling, poetic beauty--a must-read addition to the growing canon of Iceland Noir.'' --Peter James

''Snowblind was beautifully written, the landscape alone makes for good reading.'' --Biblophile Book Club

''Jonasson has produced a tense and convincing thriller; he is a welcome addition to the roster of Scandi authors, and I really look forward to his next offering.'' --Mystery People

''Snowblind is morally more equivocal than most traditional whodunnits, and it offers alluring glimpses of darker, and infinitely more threatening horizons.'' --The Independent (UK)

''Snowblind is a dark, claustrophobic read, and Jonasson evokes perfectly the 24-hour darkness, the biting cold, the relentless snow and fear of a killer on the loose in a village suddenly cut off by an avalanche. His crisp, bleak prose is an exemplary lesson in how to create atmosphere without producing over-inflated books that would cause their own avalanche if dropped.'' --Crime Review

''Ragnar Jonasson is a new name in the crime writing genre and I urge anyone who is a fan of Nordic crime noir to rush out and get yourself a copy of Snowblind this you will want to add to your collection. It is really that good.'' --The Last Word-Book Review

''The plot is built cleverly as there are only a few people who could have perpetrated the crimes and it all comes to a not obvious conclusion in this well written and engaging novel. I think it does make it more sinister as you never really know if he is safe walking around in the deep snow and perpetual dark. Who can he trust?'' --lacremedelacrime

''If Arnaldur is the King and Yrsa the Queen of Icelandic crime fiction, then Ragnar is surely the Crown Prince … more please!'' --EuroCrime --This text refers to the mp3_cd edition.

About the Author

Ragnar Jonasson was born in Iceland and works as an attorney at law and writer in Reykjavik. Before embarking on a writing career, he translated fourteen Agatha Christie novels into Icelandic. He is the cofounder of the international crime writing festival Iceland Noir and has appeared on panels at various crime fiction festivals, including Bouchercon and Left Coast Crime in the US. Jonasson lives in Reykjavik with his wife and two daughters.

Will Damron is an award-winning audiobook narrator. His narration of The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone by Adele Griffin won an AudioFile Earphones Award, and his co-narration with two other readers of The Sixteen of June by Maya Lang was a finalist for the 2015 Audie Award for Best Multi-Voiced Performance.
