CRIMINALLY GOOD: Interview with author Ragnar Jonasson

RO05oyob1) So, who are you & what have you written? 

My books, the Dark Iceland series, are set in and around the northernmost town in Iceland, Siglufjordur. The books already published are Snowblind, Blackout, Nightblind and, the latest one, Rupture. More information can be seen at www.ragnarjonasson.com and you can also meet me on Twitter @ragnarjo.

2) Why do you write crime fiction?

I’ve been reading crime fiction for a long time and it’s my favourite genre, so I really simply write crime fiction because I enjoy reading it.

41QS39kOYuL._SX323_BO1,204,203,200_3) What informs your crime writing? 

I try to focus on a few things when writing; to have some sort of a twist at the end of the plot, to focus on characters and also to put some emphasis on the setting, so that the location plays a part in the story.

4) What’s your usual writing routine?

It is simply a matter of writing when there is free time to do so, but usually a bit every day.

5) Which crime book do you wish YOU’D written, and why?

Agatha Christie’s The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. An incredibly well-plotted book.
