Ragnar Jónasson's (dubbed 'Iceland's Coolest Author' by the New York Times this week) forthcoming The Girl Who Died picked up a brilliant review over on Mystery & Suspense:
"Ragnar Jonasson does an incredible job of explaining exactly what is happening, while still surprising you at the conclusion. Everything came together in the end to a point where I was surprised I hadn’t figured it out already. The finale is satisfying and there are no loose threads left, making The Girl Who Died and enjoyable read."
