Satu Rämö

Satu Rämö (b. 1980) moved to Iceland twenty years ago as an economics exchange student, but instead of macroeconomics she ended up studying Icelandic culture, literature and mythology before forging a successful career as a blogger, writer, coach and mentor. Satu has published numerous bestselling, prizewinning non-fiction titles in her native Finland, ranging from travel guides to Iceland, to inspirational memoirs and a forthcoming Icelandic knitting book. HILDUR is her fiction debut and she is planning two further standalones featuring Hildur Rúnarsdóttir. Book 2, RÓSA & BJÖRK will be published in spring 2023, followed by Book 3 in winter 2023. Satu lives with her Icelandic husband and two children in the small town of Ísafjörður in northwest Iceland.
