From the Publisher:
Named One of the Year’s Top Ten Crime Books in the UK… A Masterwork of Suspense from "Iceland’s Crime Queen" (The Scotsman) In 1973, a volcanic eruption buried an entire Icelandic village in lava and ash. Now this macabre tourist attraction proves deadly once again—when the discovery of fresh bodies casts a shadow of suspicion onto Markus Magnusson, a man accused of killing his childhood sweetheart. His attorney Thora Gudmundsdottir finds that her client has a most inventive story to tell. But the locals seem oddly reluctant to back him up…
Filled with unforgettable characters, unexpected twists, and superb psychological suspense, Ashes to Dust is a superlative thriller from an acclaimed master of Nordic fiction.
"Sigurdardóttir's excellent third thriller featuring lawyer Thóra Gudmundsdóttir should win this talented Icelandic author new fans. . . . Even those unfamiliar with this volcanic island nation will find themselves entranced." (starred review) 02/13/2012 "Buried under all the volcanic ash, false trails and endless recriminations is a puzzle whose grim solution is worthy of Stieg Larsson." 03/01/2012
