German Critique

Das Sonnenkreuz, the German translation of Sólkross, got a very nice review in a German cultural web journal called Sauber Eingeschenkt.

Saying among other things: "Norðfjörð is named along with the two most famous Icelandic crime writers Arnaldur Indriðason and Yrsa Sigurðardóttir as an exceptional talent in the genre. More gratifying is that now German readers can also pay attention to this young author."

And: "...the reader of the book can hardly put it down. That Norðfjörð has already had great success with several titles in his homeland is no wonder - he has the right tools for making a gripping thriller!"
