Description

A terrifying ghost story from the Queen of Icelandic crime, Yrsa Sigurdardottir, author of the Thora Gudmundsdottir novels. 'Yrsa is one of the most exciting new voices in the crime thriller world.' - Peter James The crunching noise had resumed, now accompanied by a disgusting, indefinable smell.

It could best be described as a blend of kelp and rotten meat.

The voice spoke again, now slightly louder and clearer: Don't go.

Don't go yet. I'm not finished. In an isolated village in the Icelandic Westfjords, three friends set to work renovating a derelict house.

But soon they realise they are not alone there - something wants them to leave, and it's making its presence felt. Meanwhile, in a town across the fjord, a young doctor investigating the suicide of an elderly woman discovers that she was obsessed with his vanished son. When the two stories collide the terrifying truth is uncovered ...

3 and a half stars.<br/><br/>A stylish ghost novel, but with very little creep factor. Perhaps it was the translation that caused this, but I felt as if the author was over-explaining characters emotions, rather than letting their actions speak for themselves.<br/><br/>As a practiced and regular reader of ghost stories, I thought the creep factor was low. There were only two moments that gave me that lovely little shiver. It read more like a detective story than a ghost story, and in the end that's how I read it.<br/><br/>(a reminder to goodreads viewers: 3 stars is AVERAGE. When I mark a book as 3 stars, it is a perfectly average example of its genre)
