The Day Is Dark by Yrsa Sigurdardottir

By Yrsa Sigurdardottir

Whilst all touch is misplaced with Icelanders operating in a harsh and moderately populated sector at the northeast coast of Greenland, Thora is employed to enquire. Is there any reference to the disappearance of a lady from the location a few months prior? And why are the locals so opposed? Already a global bestseller, this fourth publication to add Thora Gudmundsdottir ('a pride' - dad or mum) is chilling, unsettling and compulsively readable.

The cold invigorated her and she pushed this thought aside. Her unease was probably all due to the video recording she’d just been puzzling over. Just before supper a clip had been e-mailed to her and her co-workers, showing Bjarki and Dóri, the two drillers, mucking around in the smokers’ room. Oddný Hildur didn’t know who had shot the video; maybe they’d set up the camera themselves, since there were few others besides the two of them who could bear the little smoke-saturated room for any length of time.
