The daughter of a local legend of the investigative arts, Our Heroine searches for her dog while avoiding her biological impulse to solve the mystery of her best friend's recent murder.

So establishes the baseline of Icelander, which pulsates even more deeply with Norse legend, an alternate reality and a cast of supporting characters including a rogue library-scientist, a pair of philosophical investigators, and a many-faced villain. Built on mazes of time, language, and narrator, this literary fireworks display shows you what might happen if Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple had been penned by Nabokov then run through Hitchcock's lens.

    " The constant switching of narrators (and sometimes the narrative...) was incredibly annoying. What should have been a fun murder-mystery became a post-modern wink-fest. "

    " I'm all for eccentric, but I found this book, with its silly footnotes and multiple narrators, confusing and pretentious. I'm giving it three stars instead of two because of a great cover and some nice wordplay. "

    " Clever. Though I am not sure whether I mean that as a compliment. The author can't decide between being poignant and serious or fun and ridiculous, and it can't quite hold onto being both. "

    " At one point, the author may have had a great idea for a story that takes place in an interesting pseudo-Icelandic alternate reality, but the actual novel is bogged down by dull characters, dull dialogue, dull storyline, and worst of all: a metaphysical structure that attempts to make a statement about the structure of the novel but really just comes off as annoying and pretentious. In a nutshell. "
