We're kicking off this week's DHH News Roundup with a fantastic BookList starred review for Ragnar Jonasson's Outside (April 2022, Michael Joseph):
"Icelandic author Jonasson, known for the Dark Iceland and Hulda series, offers an intense standalone, taking to new heights his unrivaled [sic] skills for using winter as an unpredictable plot-twister ... Readers will be drawn into Jonasson's forbidding Iceland landscape where it's anyone's guess who will make it out alive."
"A book that is full of zest, warmth and sunshine as a jugful of the best sangria - loved it!"
