Publisher's Summary

It's 1955. Two young couples move to the uninhabited, isolated fjord of Hedinsfjordur. Their stay ends abruptly when one of the women meets her death in mysterious circumstances. The case is never solved. Fifty years later an old photograph comes to light, and it becomes clear that the couple may not have been alone on the fjord after all....

Critic Reviews

"Traditional and beautifully finessed...morally more equivocal than most traditional whodunnits, and it offers alluring glimpses of darker, and infinitely more threatening horizons." ( Independent)

old fashioned skills

This lovely mystery is straight forward question and answer detective work. The author tosses in an old box of papers, a photo dated 1956, a couple of old timers with sharp memories and a kidnapped child. I cannot easily follow the characters because their Icelandic names are difficult to translate into easy English names - except for the one that sounds like "Snoty." A very good who done it. Not violent. not dark.

Brilliant 5 star audio book

Any additional comments?

This book is actually Book 4 of his Dark Iceland series, which all follow Ari Thór throughout. Even though this is book 4 I have never read any of the other books (although that will now be rectified) and I had no trouble following the storyline and you don’t need to have read the other three to get any back story.

The book is split into three separate stories, which, although seem unrelated, all link up nicely at the end of the book in a realistic way.

The story is really well written and the author brings the area to life, making it easy to immerse yourself in the story and almost making it seem like you are there in Iceland yourself. I am now off to listen to the first three books in the series.

The audio book was read very nicely and definitely brought the book to life in a way that just reading it would not.
