Read full description of the books:
'How could anyone possibly create a photograph of him, standing next to that woman in his nightmares?'
Pétur lives in the post-banking collapse Iceland where businessmen try to benefit and politicians pretend to be honest. He loves the thrill of money and power and he will not let anything get in his way. Not even the prime minister will get in his way of taking advantage of the government's massive privatisation plans.
The nightmares, spanning thousand years of Icelandic history and featuring that one woman are an annoying nuisance that he tries to ignore. When he receives a photo of himself with her, he wonders how anyone could have known about her existence. How his nightmare girl could escape into the physical world.
The boundaries between reality and insanity blur as a man is murdered in his office. The old house is a key to the past and as he enters, the nightmares take over and become more real than the physical world around him.

Read information about the authorVilli Asgeirsson was born in Iceland as Major Tom ascended to the skies, to be lost forever. He spent the seventies learning to read and write. He also moved houses a lot, having lived in at least six places by the time he was ten.
On his tenth birthday, he received a small transistor radio and was scared witless by a huge spider sitting on his chest. This may have formed him in a small way, or it may be irrelevant. Such is the nature of our human existence. There are no absolutes and we may never know what matters until much later, if at all.
The eighties were spent listening to questionable music and dressing badly. He also tried to learn the guitar, but the dang things never stayed in tune so he gave up.
He moved to London in the nineties to study audio engineering. If that guitar thing didn't work for him, at least he could record other people playing. He worked as a live engineer for a while. As impatience would have it, he moved again at the end of the twentieth century, this time to the Netherlands. Supposedly to have a normal life. He still lives there with a wife and child and spends his time working for a major airline, writing and dabbling in photography.
He first wrote stories as a kid. He played with poetry as a teen, even if reading poetry is something he still can’t do. His first attempt at a novel in 1997 ended in disaster. His second, in 2001, was cut short by world events. It wasn’t very good anyway. The first successful attempt at novel writing, Under the Black Sand, was published in 2013. People seemed enthusiastic about it. And now we have Blood and Rain.
