Wow! When you start a series, you often expect the second to not quite hold up to the first one if you loved it. Far North, the second in the detective series featuring Magnus Jonson, following Where the Shadows Lie, actually is better than the first. The characters introduced in the first book are developed in such a fashion that we find them even more fascinating and intriguing. The plot builds with just the right amount of suspense so that the reader literally cannot put it down.

The other "character" in the book is the unique setting of Iceland and its people following the economic downfall in 2009. Mr. Ridpath, who does not make his home in Iceland, magically captures the landscape, tales of old and the magic of this country, particularly the Western part where I have visited. Loved every page of it and cannot wait for the next installment!
