Another quality detective tale set in Iceland from Mr Jonasson. I will tell you little of the tale as I wish to give away nothing that may spoil it for you. Similar to many Scandi-Noir tales Mr Jonasson sets up the tale well eking out the details and clues over time, interspersing them with background information on his detectives, the wonders and pitfalls of life in Iceland.
This is not the best novel of it's kind that I have read but still remains a great read, each preceding page drawing you onto the next. The writing spare but both Mr Jonasson and his translator do a wonderful job of holding the tale together.
If you enjoy the crime/detective or Scandi-Noir genres then you will love this book. A page turner.
