I like the narrator but I think the voice us too feminine foe Erlundur. I would like a translation that is less England and more authentic Iceland.
Having read and enjoyed many of the previous novels about detective Erlendur, and left him in the wilderness searching for his lost brother; I was interested to visit his younger incarnation. I have to say that I’m rather disappointed. While I’ve enjoyed spending time with Erlendur, the story really didn’t grip me. One can admire his persistence but so little actually happens. There are hunches and superstitions but even by the end we have no overwhelming evidence.
If you’ve listened to this book and been disappointed but haven’t read the earlier books: Jar City, Silence of the Grave, The Draining Lake etc. as you may find these stories more rewarding.
Brilliant as I expected it to be! Great partnership between author an narrator - have read others and will read more - hope others will get the same pleasure as I do!
