"Sigurdsson is without a doubt one of the best writers of his generation." --Frettabladid Daily
After a grueling solo expedition on Vatnajökull Glacier, Austrian toponymist Bernhardt Fingerberg returns to civilization, barely alive, and into the care of Dr. Lassi. The doctor, suspicious of his story, attempts to discover his real motives for venturing into the treacherous wastelands of Iceland--but the secrets she unravels may be more dangerous than they're worth.
Ófeigur Sigurđsson (b. 1975) has published six books of poetry and two novels, includingJón (2010), the first Icelandic novel to receive the European Union Prize for Literature.
