Summary, etc.:
Hailed for combining the darkness of Nordic Noir with classic mystery writing, author Ragnar Jonasson's books are haunting, atmospheric, and complex. Rupture, the latest Ari Thór thriller, delivers another dark mystery that is chillingly stunning with its complexity and fluidity.
New evidence for a 50-year-old murder surfaces, leading young policeman Ari Thor to reopen the investigation. But even with the help of a news reporter in town to chase a mystery of her own, Siglufjördur is a small town that hangs onto its secrets--no matter the cost. -- adapted from publisher description.
"Young policeman Ari Thór tries to solve a 50-year-old murder when new evidence surfaces. But the case proves difficult in a town where no one wants to know the truth, where secrets are a way of life. He's assisted by Ísrún, a news reporter in Reykjavik who is investigating an increasingly chilling case of her own. Things take a sinister turn when a child goes missing in broad daylight. With a stalker on the loose, and the town in quarantine, the past might just come back to haunt them."-- publisher's description.
1955. Two young couples move to the uninhabited, isolated fjord of Hedinsfjörður. When one of the women meets her death in mysterious circumstances, the case is never solved. Fifty years later an old photograph comes to light, and it becomes clear that the couples may not have been alone on the fjord after all. In nearby Siglufjörður, young policeman Ari Thór tries to piece together what really happened that fateful night. He is assisted by Ísrún, a news reporter in Reykjavik, who is investigating an increasingly chilling case of her own.
