Siglufjrdur: an idyllically quiet fishing village in Northern Iceland where no one locks their doorsaccessible only via a small mountain tunnel. Ari Thr Arason: a rookie policeman on his first posting, far from his girlfriend in Reykjavkwith a past that hes unable to leave behind. When a young woman is found lying half-naked in the snow, bleeding and unconscious, and a highly esteemed, elderly writer falls to his death in the local theater, Ari is dragged straight into the heart of a community where he can trust no one and secrets and lies are a way of life. Past plays tag with the present and the claustrophobic tension mounts as Ari is thrust ever deeper into his own darknessblinded by snow and with a killer on the loose. Taut and terrifying, Snowblind is a startling debut from an extraordinary new talent.
