The Starry Ray

Tindabikkjan

Glæpafélag Vestfjarða (The Westfjords Crime Organisation) is a fellowship dedicated to Icelandic crime fiction. The organisation awards the Tindabikkjan prize (or The Starry Ray) each year to the author of that year's best Icelandic crime novel. The award was first given in 2010.

The recipient is gifted with a trophy by a Westfjords designer, along with two kilos of frozen starry ray.
