Michael Ridpath's final episode in Magnus's search for his father's killer descends into black farce as most of his icelandic family are killed off and the author leaves his nicest creation 'Arna', on the sidelines. Saved by Sean Barret's rich, gravelly reading this book lacks credibility but is a pleasant enough 'whodunnit'.

I have enjoyed this series, generally it came together well, though I have little patience with Ollie, Magnus' brother.
I think that I will shortly read all of the series again as my memory doesn't always retain all the relevant points from previous history. That perhaps is one of the drawbacks of the series, there is often reference to previous situations and actions, and if it has been months or a year between books I think it can be a little confusing and not everything clicks.
I do think that Michael Ridpath is a fine craftsman and his stories are really well conceived and executed. I love Sean Barrett as the narrator too.
There is one other book that shows as part of this series -'Polar Bear'(?) but it is only 2 hours long, I am not sure whether it IS a wrap up book and feel unwilling to spend a credit on it!
