When entrepreneur Flosi arrives home for dinner one night, he discovers that his house has been ransacked, and his wife Gudrun missing. A letter on the kitchen table confirms that she has been kidnapped. If Flosi doesn’t agree to pay an enormous ransom, Gudrun will be killed.Â
Forbidden from contacting the police, he gets in touch with ÃrÃ³ra, who specialises in finding hidden assets, and she, alongside her detective friend Daniel, try to get to the bottom of the case without anyone catching on.
Meanwhile, ÃrÃ³ra and Daniel continue the puzzling, devastating search for ÃrÃ³ra’s sister Ãsafold, who disappeared without trace. As fog descends, in a cold and rainy Icelandic autumn, the investigation becomes increasingly dangerous, and confusing.Â
Chilling, twisty and unbearably tense,Â Red as BloodÂ is the second instalment in the riveting, addictive An ÃrÃ³ra Investigation series, andÂ everythingÂ is at stake?
