Snæbjörn Arngrímsson

Barna– og ungmennabækur Children – YA Danish Danska Swedish Sænska

After a long career in publishing, both in Denmark and Iceland, Snæbjörn Arngrímsson sat down to write a story for children and adolescents. It was his dream to create a mystery adventure for kids, a story that would keep its readers so totally spellbound, drawing them in with such irresistible force, that their minds would have space for nothing else in the whole universe apart from the world of the story.
