Publisher's Summary

Siglufjördur: an idyllically quiet fishing village in Northern Iceland where no one locks their doors - accessible only via a small mountain tunnel.
Ari Thór Arason: a rookie policeman on his first posting, far from his girlfriend in Reykjavík - with a past that he's unable to leave behind.
When a young woman is found lying half-naked in the snow, bleeding and unconscious, and a highly esteemed, elderly writer falls to his death in the local theater, Ari is dragged straight into the heart of a community where he can trust no one and secrets and lies are a way of life.
Past plays tag with the present and the claustrophobic tension mounts as Ari is thrust ever deeper into his own darkness - blinded by snow and with a killer on the loose. Taut and terrifying, Snowblind is a startling debut from an extraordinary new talent.

Ups and Downs

There's real potential here for this new writer from Iceland. I very much enjoyed the atmosphere - the listener can almost feel the cold and the claustrophobic nature of snow piling up, the darkness, the isolation described.

But, even considering that the city described was once known for its fish production, there are way too many obvious red herrings here. The mystery has ups and downs, and the conclusion is less than riveting and a little bit rushed.

Don't know how much of the occasional awkwardness of language is due to translation, but I hope additional works by this author (and I do hope there will be more) will flow more smoothly.

The narrator is quite good - I love his ease with the Icelandic place and people's names.

Must Love Author

Would you try another book from Ragnar Jónasson and/or Will Damron?

No, not from author. Had to stop at ch. 14 as this is a dull story for me. I purchased due to Mr. Damron as the reader.


Would you ever listen to anything by Ragnar Jónasson again?

No, not my type of author


Which character – as performed by Will Damron – was your favorite?

I love Will Damron, see him in Tiffany Snow's, Kade Turn, Wow, which was why I wanted to try this story.
He did execute this author's intensions, but must love author's work.
