For the long review, click on through. With Black Skies, as usual, Indridason gives his readers a novel that is well worth the wait since the last one. In the previous novel, Outrage, Elinborg was the star of the show; this time it's Sigurdur Oli in the limelight as he tries to figure out who is behind the very savage beating of a blackmailer. Even without Erlendur (who I'm really missing now), it's a really good read, one I can definitely recommend to readers of Scandinavian crime fiction. A word of advice: don't let this be your first exposure to Indridason's series. Start at the beginning and make your way forward so that you can capture the author's excellent characterizations. Sadly, I'm not sure when this book is going to be released in the U.S., but I couldn't wait and bought mine through There are also copies selling via
