Someone to Watch Over Me Synopsis

A creepy, compelling thriller, SOMEONE TO WATCH OVER ME is the fifth novel from Yrsa, 'Iceland's answer to Stieg Larsson' (Daily Telegraph). Berglind hurried to her son and pulled him forcefully from the window. She held him close and tried at the same time to wipe the windowpane. But the haze couldn't be wiped away. It was on the outside of the glass. He looked up at her. 'Magga's outside. She can't get in. She wants to look after me.' He pointed at the window and frowned. 'She's a little bit angry.' A young man with Down's Syndrome has been convicted of burning down his care home and killing five people, but a fellow inmate at his secure psychiatric unit has hired Thora to prove Jakob is innocent. If he didn't do it, who did? And how is the multiple murder connected to the death of Magga, killed in a hit and run on her way to babysit?

Someone to Watch Over Me Press Reviews

Yrsa Sigurdardottir is ensconced at or near the summit of Nordic crime writing, and the lawyer Thora Gudmundsdottir is an appealing heroine full of real-life problems. SOMEONE TO WATCH OVER ME is Sigurdardottir's most ambitious, deepest novel, less reliant on the Icelandic landscape, more concerned with damaged minds.  - The Times

 

'Put simply, it's terrifying. And brilliant.' -Stylist on THE DAY IS DARK
