When the body of Jacob Kieler Junior is discovered in a stately old house in Reykjavik on a cold January morning in 1973, Jóhann Pálsson, an expert in the emerging field of forensics, is called to the scene. He soon discovers something even more unsettling than the killing itself: the victim’s father, Jacob Senior, was shot to death in the same living room nearly thirty years earlier. Through diaries Jacob Senior kept throughout his lifetime — detailing his travels abroad honing his engineering skills in wartime Europe and on the Chicago & North Western Railway in the US — Pálsson and his colleagues try to link Jacob Junior’s shooting and the death of Jacob Senior, an ambitious man dedicated to bringing the railroad to Iceland at any cost.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janis Davies | 9/28/2013

    " The history of Iceland and the 2 World Wars was interesting, but the story was a bit tedious and didn't get rolling until the last 1/4 or so of the book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Adrienne Testa | 9/17/2013

    " I tried to read this story, interested in the begining of the use of forensics in police work. It was too dry and dragged on for too long. I lost interest in the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberley | 4/8/2013

    " This is a good mystery and well translated. Contrary to a few others' opinion, it makes complete sense to retain the original unpronouncable Icelandic names. Who cares, are we reading aloud? The story is a bit long, but the ending concluded well and surprised me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele | 3/31/2013

    " I enjoyed the thriller part but found that the diaries were a bit fastidious. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randy | 3/13/2013

    " My first Icelandic mystery novel. I enjoyed being transported to a new world although I had a bit of trouble following some of the character names. "

    " Interesting. Icelandic mystery. Author writes well or is translated well. "
