“It had rained without a break since the middle of the afternoon, when the skies had finally started to clear. Ari Thór didn’t make a habit of going to the theatre, but still understood the excitement behind a good production. Tension in the air could sometimes be palpable, but never as overwhelming as it was that Friday evening in the Siglufjördur theatre. But this time there was no production taking place and the auditorium was empty. What he and Tómas – both of them on duty that night – could not avoid was the body. There was no doubt they were looking at a corpse; but Tómas still checked for a pulse”
Ragnar Jónasson, Snowblind

“That damned volcano”
Ragnar Jónasson, Blackout

“She was deaf to the sighing of the waves and blind to the stars and Northern Lights shimmering across the sky.”
Ragnar Jónasson, The Mist
