. . . A chiller-thriller of immense scariness . . . Not to be read alone after dark.
..a grisly chiller set in the depths of winter... It's an accomplished debut.
A chilling read, enhanced by Sigurdardottir's taut plotting, realistic characters, and dry humour
A chilling read, perfect for a dark night.
Expertly woven together, with plenty of cliffhangers and perfect control of the macabre mood: intriguing, entertaining, and very spooky indeed.
Genuinely bone-chilling, and proves that as well as being the queen of Icelandic crime fiction, Sigurdardottir is a supreme generator of fear . . . (she) is clearly relishing the business of scaring our pants off.
Sigurdardottir intertwines these plotlines brilliantly and the two creepy strands gradually tighten together to really give the reader the heebie-jeebies. The author comes from a crime and thriller background and you can tell: there are cliff-hangers at the end of almost every chapter and she expertly ramps up the feeling of dread as the plot accelerates and all in the book find themselves in mortal danger.
The Icelandic queen of Nordic Noir, Yrsa Sigurdardottir's writing manages to be both spare but sinister. Expect goosebumps to sprout while reading this tale of murder, abuse and other worldly shenanigans in rural Iceland.
The stories share an underlying menace that is at once disturbing and compelling.
Yrsa Sigurdardottir's chillers get better and better. I REMEMBER YOU is a truly creepy combination of haunted house story and modern detection in Iceland.
