The publisher has already released her first two crime novels in English, Thridja táknid (Last Rituals; 2005/2008) and Sér grefur gröf (My Soul to Take; 2006/2009) to much critical acclaim, Morgunbladid reports.

Sigurdardóttir is currently following up on the release of My Soul to Take in the UK. She participated in two panel discussions at the crime novel festival Crimefest in Bristol on Friday and this week she will travel to London and appear on BBC radio.
