Another great Arnaldur Indridason Iceland mystery

Any additional comments?

Not sure if other reviewers listened to the same book. This is a wonderful installment of the Erlendur series. The story is rich with atmosphere and George Guidall's narration is again, spot on. For avid followers, this book also provides some interesting insight into Sigurdur Oli.

Fails to deliver on many levels

I wish I would have checked the reviews before I bought this book. I chose this book after reading Jar City by the same author, which is a decidedly better book than this one. Arctic Chill crawls along at a snail's pace, with little in the way of a plot to engage the reader. None of the characters is fleshed out in much depth, and the final solution to the mystery more or less comes out of nowhere. At best this book could be read as a mood piece of an Iceland that is dark, cold, and bleak. Even the introduction of an immigrant family from Thailand, which could have offered some very interesting opportunities for social commentary and dramatic tension, never ascends much above cliche. All in all, a big disappointment.
