I enjoyed this book not only for the story but for the insight of Icelandic culture. The main detective is a little dark and brooding man. This is not the typical macho detective, but a person with scars and fears like everyone else. This series will be similar to "Bones" the TV series in that the crimes are in the past so you get a little history of life in iceland as the solve the crime

not the best in the series -- too much lecturing. But a cut abov

not the best in the series -- too much lecturing. But a cut above still many others out there -- like anything by Patterson . Wildest scene is the crazy gun battle that  takes place inside an old lady's house simply because detective ducks in there.

    Different, yet the same..

    The book is your "basic" murder mystery. The characters are interesting but not that grand I suppose you could say. However, I gave the book three stars because although it's a story you've probably read or seen before it's still an enticing and gripping story. Once I started I couldn't wait to continue, I hated having to put the book down. The setting of the story (Iceland) is what I really believe kept me reading. While reading the descriptive details of the story I felt as if I was really there in Iceland. The author truly describes every detail, not only in regards to the country but the murder itself as well as the events leading up to it and what came after. Not a single question left unanswered. This is my first book that I've read by this author and although very much out of order in the series, I can't wait to go buy the very first book written in the series! As I said, I have read the book out of order however I would of never have known had I not searched the author on Google. You never get the feeling that you've missed anything. I would most certainly suggest this to my friends to read, and well, to anyone else too.
