New Magnus crime novel out: Death in Dalvik


Death in Dalvik by Michael Ridpath

My new Magnus novel is published! It's called Death in Dalvik and is number 6 in the series after The Wanderer.

When sixteen-year-old Dísa is given five bitcoin by her divorced father she is unimpressed: she hasn’t heard of the cryptocurrency, and five of anything can’t be worth very much. But a year later, when her grandparents are about to lose the farm near the Icelandic village of Dalvik where their family has lived for centuries, quiet, unassuming Dísa is able to rescue it with the profits from her astute trading of her father's gift.

Unknown to Dísa, her mother Helga catches the cryptocurrency bug. Not only does Helga invest in Thomocoin, a new cryptocurrency sweeping Iceland, but she persuades many of her neighbours in Dalvík to invest too, taking a cut for herself.

Helga is found murdered on the hillside above the farm and Inspector Magnus Jonson investigates. Magnus realizes that Dísa, now a nineteen-year-old student, can help him unveil the shadowy forces behind Thomocoin. But torn between loyalty to her family and fear for her life, Dísa has other ideas.

‘Old worlds and new collide in this slice of Iceland Noir served up by a thriller writer at the top of his game.’ Alex Shaw, author of Total Fallout

The book will be available worldwide, in paperback or as an ebook through Kindle (only). The ebook price is £2.99/$3.99 for the next week or so, but will go up to £3.99/$5.99 after that. This is the Amazon link

If you want to buy a signed and dedicated copy, then please get in touch with my local bookshop, Lutyens and Rubinstein, who will send you one once I have come by and signed it.

If you do buy it, I hope you enjoy it!
