My Soul To Take (Þóra Guðmundsdóttir, #2)
3.5 stars would be more appropriate. I like Yrsa's books. The first chapter was really scary and sad at the same time. Then the scary part evaporated in spite of the ghost line of the story. That was the biggest drawback. I must agree with with a review I read on eurocrime.co.uk, that the attention is focused more on Thóra - the "detective" and not on the personages responsible for the crime so the story lacks more insight as the background is percieved through Thóra's eyes only. What I appreciate in her mysteries is how she intertwines the story with Icelandic folklore/history. It somehow reminds me of Johan Theorin's Oland Quartet but he definitely is more noir.
