Until recent years, Iceland’s biggest exports were aluminium and fillets of fish – but things have changed greatly. Suddenly, it is the country’s crime writers that are in demand.
Led by the undisputed Queen of Icelandic Noir, our prestigious guest, Yrsa Sigurðardóttir, a wave of stunning crime fiction voices has emerged from this relatively crime-free country.
Her latest novel is the stunning The Absolution, her ninth novel in English. When a teen is murdered, the police find out the same way everyone else does – on Snapchat. When other teens go missing, Freyja and Huldar must stop it before it spins out of control.
Yrsa’s special guest interviewer will be BBC broadcaster and author Sally Magnusson.
