Land of Fire and Ice: Katrín Júlíusdóttir and Lilja Sigurdardóttir £10/£9

Iceland’s uncanny ability to produce a series of exceptional crime fiction writers continues to burn undiminished. It’s a tiny country but has a strong tradition of storytelling and a stunning, mythic landscape as a stage. Two of their brightest lights are coming our way. 

Katrin Júlíusdóttir, Iceland’s former finance minister, won the prestigious Blackbird Award for her stunning debut novel Dead Sweet, a breathless political thriller of financial crime, cults, and secrets. Lilja Sigurdardóttir is a Bloody Scotland favourite, and her brilliant new novel, the twisty and atmospheric Dark as Night, is the fourth in her addictive Áróra series. 

Chaired by Elaine Downs.

This event is supported by The Icelandic Literature Center.

Saturday 14th September, 17:30, Golden Lion.
