He's amazing, Indridason - sweet and soulful - I don't know another mystery writer except perhaps for Camilleri who is able to weave you so artfully into the lives of his characters, the setting, their moral dilemmas, the angst of being police detectives and, of course, the crimes themselves - here he takes us into the world of Sigurdur Oli, as Outrage took us into the world of Elinborg (this book more or less takes place in the same moment as Outrage!) - the breakup of his marriage, his to the right politics, fractured relationships with his parents and friendships dating back to high school and mixes them up with some interconnected (or not so interconnected) crimes that chill us with their Icelandic coldness. Only thing wrong with this book? Indridason is tormenting his fans with hints about his great detective Erlendur who has disappeared into the frozen wilds of Eastern Iceland and his past! I can hardly wait to see what Indridason does next!!!!!
