International superstar Yrsa Sigurdardottir has captivated the attention of readers around the world with her mystery series featuring attorney Thora Gudmundsdottir. Now, with I Remember You, Yrsa will stun readers once again with this out-of-this-world ghost story that will leave you shivering.
In an isolated village in the Icelandic Westfjords, three friends set to work renovating a rundown house. But soon, they realize they are not as alone as they thought. Something wants them to leave, and it's making its presence felt. Meanwhile, in a town across the fjord, a young doctor investigating the suicide of an elderly woman discovers that she was obsessed with his vanished son. When the two stories collide, the terrifying truth is uncovered.
In the vein of Stephen King and John Ajvide Lindqvist, this horrifying thriller, partly based on a true story, is the scariest novel yet from Yrsa Sigurdardottir, who has taken the international crime fiction world by storm.
I Remember You won the Icelandic Crime Fiction Award and also was nominated for The Glass Key Award.
Two cases of vanished children propel this meticulously plotted supernatural thriller from Icelandic author Sigurdardottir (Ashes to Dust). In the first, a trio of travelers to the isolated Westfjords village of Hesteyri are thwarted in their efforts to renovate a home they have purchased by a dangerously mischievous spectral child. In the second, psychiatrist Freyr and police detective Dagn investigate the vandalizing of a grade school in safj rdur and uncover clues that recall a similar incident at the school 60 years before that occurred shortly after the unsolved disappearance of one of its pupils. Delving into the past, Freyr finds a string of bizarre deaths that claimed the schoolboy's classmates in adulthood. Though incidents in the Hesteyri thread become a little static and repetitive compared to the complicated fact-sifting safj rdur thread, the author draws both strands of her story together for an unpredictable finale that blends the best aspects of the tale of mystery and the tale of the supernatural.
I Remember You
Outstanding!! It made me think how our daily actions are so important, and the guilt and sorrow can last for a lifetime. How ironic that a psychiatrist’s unethical behavior brought so much suffering — that he is supposed to alleviate and treat in patients! However, by admitting his lie, he found answers! Hope he stays away from that isolated place where angry ghosts linger!
I remember you
Boring and depressing. Don't waste your money
I Remember You
I have read the works of more than 50 mystery writers. This book was the worst, most depressing and least credible of all. Don't waste your time or money on a barely believable trip through the sewer.
