As the Twin Towers collapse, a teenage boy in Reykjavik gets a cell phone and subsequently meets his first girlfriend. At the same time, a famous pop drummer gets into a car accident where a young girl loses her life.
Fifteen years later, these two men cross paths. Arnmundur is a restless graduate student abroad who spends his time on his phone seducing girls on dating apps. Stefan stopped drumming, became a ‘Corporate Viking’ and now runs a start-up company that he’s sure will change the world. But under the surface old secrets, disappointments and thirst for vengeance are seething.

Again & Again is a riveting and brilliantly written story for our times where normal peoplestruggle to find love, warmth and meaning in a globalized world of fluid capital and random violence.

The most interesting author in the country. Icelandic literature has no future without him.

Author Steinar Bragi

The naked heart of the present beats in Again & Again.

Literary critic Silja Adalsteindsdottir

Halldor Armand is a new voice in Icelandic literature, and one hopes this voice will sound loud and clear in the years to come.
