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
- C. Telfair
This is my idea of a perfect mystery
Setting was a character in itself. Main character thoroughly likeable and believable. Interesting supporting characters, well developed. Mysteries were interesting and conclusion was believable.
There was no sexual violence, as with so many mysteries today. Possibility of accident and suicide was also considered tragic outcomes (not every death was a murder).
Did not detract from the story- barely noticed the narration, it was like I was reading the story in my head!
Relationship between the young couple raised a lot of interesting issues, left me feeling deeply for both of them.
