Rupture

Rupture by Ragnar Jonasson is the new Ari Thor Icelandic noir. A fifty-year-old crime has resurfaced. This book takes us back to Ari Thor’s days as a young policeman. He is trying to solve a cold case in a town committed to maintaining its secrets. The author’s economical prose perfectly describes the claustrophobic atmosphere of Iceland in the winter; a countryside full of insular communities with many interconnections. He is dogged and perseveres, drawing the reader into a labyrinth of lies.
