Yrsa's second Thora Gudmundsdottir book, My Soul To Take will be released in April 09.
Synopsis from amazon.co.uk:
The child started crying harder, trying desperately to stifle her sobs. This wasn’t right. Why couldn’t God just come and get her now, if He was so good? Why did she have to go down into that dark pit? She was afraid of the dark, and this was a bad place – her mother had told her so. The girl looked at the man and knew she was going down there whether she wanted to or not.Read the euro crime review of the first in the series, Last Rituals, here.
