Ari Thór Arason is a local policeman whose tumultuous past and uneasy relationships with the villagers in an idyllically quiet fishing village in Northern Iceland―where no one locks their doors―continue to haunt him.

The peace of this close-knit community is shattered by the murder of a policeman―shot at point-blank range in the dead of night in a deserted house. With a killer on the loose and the dark Arctic winter closing in, it falls to Ari Thór to piece together a puzzle that involves tangled local politics, a compromised new mayor, and a psychiatric ward in Reykjavík where someone is being held against their will. Then a mysterious young woman moves to the area, on the run from something she dares not reveal, and it becomes all too clear that tragic events from the past are weaving a sinister spell that may threaten them all.

Review Quotes

“Story’s got me gripped, but even more satisfying is how the characters are never just there as pawns in the plot.”

Ian Rankin, New York Times bestselling author

“There will be no better way to start the year than by reading Nightblind by Ragnar Jonasson…Jonasson’s books have breathed new life into Nordic noir.”

Sunday Express (London)

“British aficionados of Nordic Noir are familiar with two excellent Icelandic writers, Arnaldur Indriðason and Yrsa Sigurðardóttir. Here´s a third: Ragnar Jónasson…The darkness and cold are almost papable.”

Times (London)

Nightblind…certainly lives up to the promise of its predecessor…This is an atmospheric portrayal of a claustrophobic place where everyone is connected…Economical and evocative prose, as well as some masterful prestidigitation.”

Guardian (London)

"[An] excellent second thriller…Jónasson plants clues fairly before a devastatingly unexpected reveal, without sublimating characterization to plot.”

Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Jónasson’s sharp-edged style lends a somber, haunting note to this exposé of domestic abuse. Recommend this one…to Arnaldur Indridason fans.”


“The final surprise carries a real shock…and of course the advent of the Icelandic winter is likely to chill hearts even below the Arctic Circle.”
