About the book

The new locked-room mystery by Sunday Times bestseller, Ragnar Jónasson now

One Murder.
Five Suspects.
Step into Death At The Sanatorium . . .

'Is this the best crime writer in the world today?' THE TIMES

'An automatic must-read for me' LEE CHILD

'Master of the Icelandic thriller' NEW YORK POST

---

An old sanatorium. A terrifying murder. Six suspects and a case that never closed . . .


Akureyri, Northern Iceland, 1983.

High up in the most northern part of Iceland stands The Akureyri Sanatorium. Once a hospital dedicated to treating tuberculosis, it now sits haunted by the ghosts of its past.

One wing of the hospital remains open and houses six employees: the caretaker, two doctors, two nurses and a young research assistant.

Despite the wards closing decades ago they remain at the hospital to conduct research. But the cold corridors, draughty windows and echoey halls are constant reminders of the building’s dark history.

When one of the nurses, Yrsa, is found brutally murdered, they discover that death has never left this place – and neither did its secrets. None can escape this terrifying legacy.

Despite just five suspects the case is never solved and remains open for two decades. Until a young criminologist named Helgi Reykdal attempts to finally lay the ghosts of the hospital's past to rest . . .

'The story never stops moving . . . reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock' MORGUNBLADID, ICELAND

'Skilfully told on different time levels, and with an ending that promises more' GÖTEBORGS-POSTEN, SWEDEN
