I enjoyed all Ragnar Jónasson's Dark Iceland novels, and I now try to read any of his work that gets translated into English.
The Island (Elliðaey) is the second in Ragnar's Hidden Iceland series featuring Hulda Hermannsdottir. I already know of Hulda's eventual fate (having read The Darkness) but it doesn't really matter in which order you read the books.
The Island is not full of unnecessary words and this gives it a haunting quality that adds to the atmosphere. Great read!
