Product description

Review

"Best-selling Icelandic crime-writer Sigurdardottir has built a formidable reputation with just four novels, but here she introduces a new protagonist who is set to cement her legacy." -- The Daily Mail

"Reading
Cold as Hell sometimes gives you "the bizarre feeling of having been struck by a hand that had previously been so gentle". Isn't that what all crime writers should aim for? The good news, my "cuddle dumplings", is that Arora will be back." --Times

"Thriller of the year." --New York Journal of Books on Snare

"Sigurdardóttir's secret sauce is constructing satisfying narratives from diaphanous stands of plot and fleeting glimpses of her characters' contrary natures. The result? Another bleak, unpredictable classic." --
Metro

"fans of Nordic noir will find plenty to like." --
Publishers Weekly on Trap

"[A] lively conclusion...Fans already invested in this Nordic crime series will race through the pages."--
Publishers Weekly on Cage

"A taut, gritty, thoroughly absorbing journey into Reykjavik's underworld." --
Booklist on Snare

"Prime binge-reading." --
Booklist on Trap

"Sigurðardóttir knows how to ratchet up the tension...[
Trap] is a worthy addition to the icy-cold crime genre popularized by Scandinavian noir novels." --Foreword Reviews on Trap

"Tough, uncompromising and unsettling." --Val McDermid on
Betrayal

"With its clever plot and brisk, tight pace, this hard-to-put-down Nordic thriller will be a treat for crime fiction fans." --
Library Journal on Snare

What a read! A lot of characters, each unique in their own ways. My heart kept pounding every time I turned a page. I love the small chapters in this book . Looking forward to read more of the Árora investigation series.
