My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This sees a shift in the Reykjavik Murder series, the grumpy old hack Erlendur is not around. He’s on leave and no one knows where. It is assumed that he has gone off to search for his long-lost brother. The focus is then on Elinborg one of Erlendurs trusted assistants. This is what seems to be an open and shut case of rape. There is the involvement of date rape drugs. The setting is within families and connected communities. Elinborg struggles but ultimately triumphs.
The flavour is not quite there I miss the prime ingredient of Erlendur and I hope that he returns.
