My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A great read with lots of sadness. the story moves between the present and WW 2 Reykjavik. Erlendur the central character and investigating officer has his own demons present and past.
There are elements of Henning Mankell and Håkon Nesser both great writers. I am an unabashed fan of Scandinavian crime fiction Arnaldur Indriðason being the latest author I am reading. This is also the first novel that I have read on a tablet. This proved to be less painful than I thought. The added benefit of white letters on a black background means that I can read in the dark.
