    " This actually an earlier book from Indridason, capitalizing on the popularity of his excellent Erlandur series. It's an old-school action thriller similar to those of Alistair MacLean, but manages to throw in a few twists to a familiar formula. yes, the US military is often the villain in these types of things, but here the peculiar and uneasy relationship between the Icelandic people and the American military presence in Iceland spices up the story nicely. Nothing earth-shaking here, and not up to the emotional intensity of Indridason's other books, but a fun read nonetheless. "

    " This was originally published in 1999 and not translated and published into British English until 2010, so between the technological time warp between now and then and the halting translation, I felt (or hope) I was missing some of the nuances the author intended. When the mystery finally unfolded the quasi-hero was dead, the heroine was jaded and unemotive, and I was confused about what the big deal was. Still, I turned the pages and enjoyed a quick read. "

    " I gave up 3/4 of the way through and skimmed until the ending. It had promise but really did not deliver. I hear his mysteries are really good -- I will give one of those a try. "

    " Author steps out of his murder mystery series for a thriller. Interesting premise but plot gets a little implausible. Still a good read. "
