Publisher's Summary

A woman is found murdered in her bathtub, and the murder has been made to look like a suicide. But a strange symbol found at the crime scene leads the local police to call Commissaire Adamsberg and his team. When the symbol is found near the body of a second disguised suicide, a pattern begins to emerge: Both victims were part of a disastrous expedition to Iceland over 10 years ago where a group of tourists found themselves trapped on a deserted island for two weeks, surrounded by a thick, impenetrable fog rumored to be summoned by an ancient local demon. Two of them didn't make it back alive. But how are the deaths linked to the secretive Association for the Study of the Writings of Maximilien Robespierre? And what does the mysterious symbol signify?

Solid

I love all the quirky characters but it did go on and ON about the Robespierre aspect too much too confusing but as usual never saw the end coming. I love her animals the stallion and especially mark the wild boar. Translate more if her books !

Adamsberg an old friend

Sometimes I have trouble following the jumps in Adamsberg's thinking, but overall super enjoyable. Fascinating look into French police life.

It has been a few years since reading an Adamberg Fred Vargas and I loved hearing this audio book.
