Winner of the Petrona Award 2015!

From the queen of Icelandic crime fiction comes a truly chilling story that will leave readers breathless right up to the memorable ending. This is possibly her best book yet. Bestselling and award-winning Icelandic crime author Yrsa Sigurdardóttir has produced here a dazzling display of brilliant crime writing that is both groundbreaking and immensely satisfying.

As The Silence of the Sea opens, a luxury yacht crashes into a Reykjavik pier. But the boat is empty; no one is on board. What has happened to the crew? And what has happened to the family who were very much present when the yacht left Lisbon?

What should Thora Gudmundsdottir, the series sleuth, make of the rumors that the vessel was cursed? She is spooked even more when she boards the yacht and thinks she sees one of the missing children. Where is Karitas, the glamorous young wife of the yacht's former owner? And whose is the body that has washed up further along the shore?

The most chilling novel yet from Yrsa Sigurdardottir, an international best-selling author at the height of her powers.

About the Author:

YRSA SIGURDARDÓTTIR (pronounced UR-suh SIG-ur-dar-daughter) lives with her family in Reykjavík. She is a director of one of Iceland's largest engineering firms. She is the bestselling and award-winning Icelandic crime author of the Thóra Gudmundsdóttir series as well as several stand-alone thrillers. In 2011 her stand-alone horror novel I Remember You was awarded the Icelandic Crime Fiction Award and was nominated for The Glass Key award. Her work is climbing bestseller lists all over the world―and has been translated into more than 30 languages―and films are currently in production for several of her books. Sigurjon Sighvatsson, an Icelandic-born Hollywood producer who has produced films including Killer Elite, Brothers, and Arlington Road, is producing a major Hollywood film of I Remember You and a TV series based on Thora.

Review:

Praise for The Silence of the Sea:

“A tour de force capped by a haunting final scene that will linger in your mind.” ―Kirkus (starred)

“A gripping, scary tale with a little bit of Sigurdardottir's signature supernatural flair.” ―The Cleveland Plain Dealer (Grade:A)

“This story’s mystery is flawless and its eeriness unshakable.” ―Booklist (starred)

“A top-notch plot-driven novel that scores high marks for its chill factor.” ―Reactions to Reading

A locked-boat mystery enhanced with a hint of ghosts, this deliciously eerie variation on Agatha Christie’s Ten Little Indians won the Petrona Award for best Scandinavian crime novel in 2015.”―Publishers Weekly (starred)

“Sigurdardottir has created a clever, seaborne locked-room puzzle with a touch of the supernatural.” ―Seattle Times

This spooky, haunting thriller, which won the 2015 Petrona Award for Best Scandinavian Crime Novel of the Year, will grab the attention of readers who enjoyed Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None.” ―Library Journal (starred)

“[A] particularly propulsive...pleasurably creepy read.” ―Boston Globe

“...no one knows how to create a poisonous atmosphere quite as well as Sigurdardottir.” ―Providence Journal


Praise for Yrsa Sigurdardottir:

“Nordic mystery writers can raise goosebumps as few others can, and Sigurdardottir shows she's one of the best.” ―Booklist (starred) on I Remember You

“Sigurdardottir has written an excellent and seriously scary mystery with tangible and supernatural elements that will appeal to fans of John Ajvide Lindqvist.” ―Library Journal (starred) on I Remember You

“I can see why so many people are enthusiastic about Yrsa's work. It's very engaging, fresh and exciting.” ―James Patterson

Someone to Watch Over Me seductively weaves together two seemingly disparate stories.” ―Cleveland Plain Dealer (Grade: A)

“Drives to a shattering climax that honors the traditions of both detective fiction and ghost stories.” ―Kirkus Reviews on I Remember You

I Remember You ranks among the scariest, right up there with the best of Stephen King and Peter Straub. It's that good. And that scary. And, ultimately, that moving.” ―EarlyWord on I Remember You
