Lilja´s newest book, Netið ((Tangle) was published by Forlagid publishing in October 2016 and is the second book in the Reykjavík Noir Trilogy.
Lilja started her writing career in 2008 when she sent a manuscript of a novel to a competition run by the publishing house Bjartur whose aim was to find the Icelandic Dan Brown. Lilja got a publishing deal out of the competition and in 2009 her first book, the crime novel Spor (Steps), came out, which she wrote in her spare time.

When those days come I do something else, like reading over my text, correcting etc. I also feel that it is useful to be working on two things at the same time, that is to have a ´sidekick´project, so that when I get tired of one thing I can switch to the other for a few days. As writing is a mental sport one gets drained occasionally so it is also necessary for writers to take vacations two or three times a year and do something different, in fact everything except writing works! Then one can return to the writing energized and inspired.(less)

“At that moment Grímur decided that sixteen years would not be sufficient. Sixteen years and out in ten was not a high enough price to pay for all those black eyes, for the wails and the tears and the desperation that seeped down to him through the floor. It wasn’t enough for beating her to death, crushing the battered body into a suitcase and dumping it like garbage out in the lava field.”
Lilja Sigurðardóttir, Cold as Hell

“Iceland would never be much more than a remote outpost.”
Lilja Sigurðardóttir, Snare

“This had to be something that came with age, a kind of resilience, and a certainty that the passage of life and death would not be controlled.”
Lilja Sigurðardóttir, Cold as Hell
