This book is definitely on par with the best of the Scandinavian crime writers. It is an opportunity to learn about a certain aspect of life in Iceland.
I was glued from start to finish...just glad I was listening to Woman's Hour to hear about it. Can't wait for the next book. Thank you J

I found the scene setting very long and drawn out, there were many different parts to the tale and the seemed to take forever to get together. There were also some very strange reactions, the woman who got a text message, from an unknown number, saying I am coming round, - instead of texting back and asking 'who are you?', she rushed around styling her hair and putting on make up? I was going to ditch the book at 1/4 way through but went to read reviews on Amazon and decided to stick with it.
I didn't like any of the characters, all of them with negative outlooks, and the first part of the story was all over the place. However, once I picked up the story again it was worth the read, the characters did soften a little, and the twist was well done and worthwhile. I didn't guess the perpetrator until he was nearly disclosed.
I am not sure about trying the second in the series.
