Revue de presse

'Put simply, it's terrifying. And brilliant.' (Stylist)

'As with the other books in this series there is humour and warmth. Atmospheric, complex and compelling with an unexpected ending.' (www.shotsmag.co.uk)

As with the other books in this series there is humour and warmth. Atmospheric, complex and compelling with an unexpected ending. (www.shotsmag.co.uk)

Publishers and blurb writers are competing to hail the new monarch of Nordic crime fiction . . . I would be tempted to offer a name not from the obvious crime soil of Sweden or Norway, but from bleak and moody Iceland . . . (Marcel Berlins, The Times)

'Sigurdardottir uses her novel to expose the impact of the modern world on remote Inuit communities.' (The Canberra Times)

'If you are looking for something a bit different try this Icelandic writer and her feisty lawyer heroine, Thora. ' (Mail on Sunday)

'Superbly atmospheric' (Heat)

'The twists and turns are as chilling as the weather . . . [a] pageturner.' (Bella)

It's another complex case for Thora, liveliest granny on the floes, and deeply satisfying for the warm-toed reader. (Independent)

Henning Mankell and Stieg Larsson have helped make Scandinavian crime fiction a global phenomenon, but if you're looking for something a bit different try this Icelandic writer and her feisty lawyer heroine, Thora. (Mail on Sunday)

Présentation de l'éditeur

When all contact is lost with two Icelanders working in a harsh and sparsely populated area on the northeast coast of Greenland, Thora is hired to investigate. Is there any connection with the disappearance of a woman from the site some months earlier And why are the locals so hostile.



Already an international bestseller, this fourth book to feature Thora Gudmundsdottir ('a delight' - Guardian) is chilling, unsettling and compulsively readable.

Le début de ce livre promettait une énigme originale mais, arrivée à la moitié de ce livre, j'espère toujours qu'il va enfin se passer quelque chose à la page suivante. Tout ce que j'en retiens jusqu'à présent c'est que, selon l'auteur, les rares habitants de l'Est du Groenland sont tarés, alcooliques et superstitieux. De plus ils se laissent crever de faim car ils n'ont plus le droit de chasser les phoques et les baleines. Est-ce seulement vrai ?
Quant à l'intrigue elle-même, d'après les commentaires lus sur Amazon USA et UK, il vaut mieux passer tout de suite aux 20 dernières pages pour avoir la solution de ce mystère glacé.
Dommage, il y avait de l'idée, mais finalement mal exploitée.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 BIzarre thriller 3 septembre 2011
Par Harley - Publié sur Amazon.com

Great reading. This installment is based in Greenland. An original plot which weaves the past death of a remote village into mysterious disappearances in a mining exploration camp. I have enjoyed all the novels in this series but I think this was the best. Even the slight niggle of the unlikely nature of Thora and Mathew's fieldtrip to deepest darkest Greenland cannot take from a well executed and unusual plot.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good but not the best. However still an enjoyable read 1 mars 2013
Par Cheryl Koch - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Thora has received a telephone call from her lover, Matthew. His employer has an issue with one of their clients, Berg Technology. The company is in mining. It seems that all of the crew took a leave and is now refusing to return to the job. Well most of the crew. The few that remained on the site are presumed dead. Thora agrees to join Matthew and a crew to investigate.

Yrsa Sigurdardottir is another new to me author. I was really intrigued to read this book. It sounded chilling. This was a good book however I did have some issues following along. I did get lost a couple times and had to go back and re-read a part of section that I had just read. One problem being that the story while it was interesting the mystery was long drawn out. Another was all of the different characters that appeared in this book. Some names seemed so similar to each other that this made it difficult to figure out who was who.

However I liked Thora. She never overreacted to anything. Also, I like that she still showed that she was a woman. For example when she unpacked her suitcase after arriving at in Greenland. Right on top in the suitcase was a pair of high-heeled shoes along with Capri pants, skirts, dresses and a pashmina shawl. The ending was good. I wanted to point this out for the fact that sometimes a book can be good but the ending bad or not up to par. I do want to go back and read some of the prior novels.

I have enjoyed this author's other books and their Icelandic setting. This one was a disappointment. I found the setting (a deserted worksite in Greenland) dull, and the plot meandering and not credible. The book could have been improved by some serious editing to tighten up the writing. I could never get interested in the characters, story, or resolution of the mystery. Many plot elements were outlandish. I gave it two stars instead of one only because I like the author's flashes of humor. This is a dud; try one of her previous books instead.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Gloomy tale of ominous disappearances in Greenland 22 avril 2015
Par Patto - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Atmosphere is everything in this story. Lawyer Thora Gudmundsdottir has been sent to a mining camp in Greenland to help a bank handle a contract dispute. Employees of the mining company have refused to return to work because three of their co-workers have disappeared.

The weather is deadly cold. The worksite is in a grim wilderness far from civilization. The native Greenlanders in the nearest village are strangely unfriendly. Generations of people who tried to settle in the area seemed to have died off of hunger and hardship.

Thora finds frightening videos in the computer files of the drillers who disappeared. And there are strange bloodstains on their pillows.

This author is adept at establishing a slow pacing of terror. Horrid discoveries occur at intervals, but the ominous mood is immediate and never lets up.

Thora's team members on this research trip are an odd bunch, vividly portrayed. And the picture we get of the native villagers is quite moving – so many are in the grip of alcohol addiction. One abstemious old hunter, still true to the ancestors and ancient prohibitions, is particularly fascinating.

The plot has some twists that truly did surprise me.

I enjoy this writer. She has her own unique style. Her lawyer-investigator, Thora Gudmundsdottir, is appealing for her normalcy more than anything. The Day Is Dark is not so much a page-turner as a page-gripper.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Rings True and Twist at the End 21 novembre 2012
Par Jim Mason - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Everything written here about the cultural destruction on the east coast of Greenland rings true. Just need to compare it with what is currently happening in the Eastern Arctic of Canada. Well written, interesting and dark with a twist in the end. Kind of a no one gets out undamaged type mystery although nothing much happens to the main character and her friends. The setting is phenomenal, probably the only shortcoming having worked a bit in the Eastern Arctic; is that the starkness and cold beauty of the landscape could have been better captured. Probably pretty true to life in that the off worlders, it really is a strnge and different world, spend most of their time indoors. But a good read nonetheless.
