Praise

“Required reading for anyone who wants a sense of how calamitious Iceland’s meltdown was—and what just might be in store for American police procedurals next.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Cold Comfort introduces some very interesting characters and develops the setting and stories of Gunna’s environment in positive ways, leading me to look forward to the next Gunnhildur book with anticipation.” —International Noir Fiction

Praise for Frozen Assets:

“Excellent debut…. Bates does a fine job with both Gunna and her town, her acerbic boss and an online blogger who keeps us abreast of events in Icelandic media and politics.”—Toronto Globe and Mail

“[A] crackling fiction debut … palpable authenticity.”—Publishers Weekly

In Gunna Gísladóttir, Quentin Bates has created a character who appeals both on professional and personal levels.”—Examiner.com

“The author has used the financial disarray of Iceland quite successfully in the plotting of this book. Money is power and power is so often the root of crime, and so it is in Cold Comfort…. Gunna is a tough as nails, take no hostages type cop. She throws herself into each investigation pushing the subject in the interview room until she gets what she wants.” —Bestsellersworld.com, Mysteries Galore
