Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 2/4/2014

    " Not anErlander story butan investigation by one of his 2 associate investigators, and therefore the novel suffers for the loss of Erlander and his depressed and quirky natural. It is like a Nesbo Harry Hole book without Harry being there. It is a rather standard crime and anon imaginative solution. Not his best effort. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 2/3/2014

    " Indridason never disappoints. This book doesn't feature his regular protagonist, Erlendur, instead focusing on his right-hand woman, detective Elinborg. She is brought brilliantly to life as she tries to investigate the murder of a man who seems to have been using date rate drugs to attack women. As usual, it's a probing psychological study rather than just a bland whodunit, revealing how a crime can echo through the years. But it also touches other subject, such as the distance that develops between parents and their growing children. Superb. "

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book. This was the first of Arnaldur Indridason I have read, and it won't be the last. The plot, although a bit sluggishe here and there, kept me captivated right to the last page. The unusual setting - Iceland - and the unusual, quircky characters came alive for me. The only probelm I had with it was it kept me from my writing! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert Intriago | 1/24/2014

    " I like what the author did in this book. Erlunder is not there. He has taken a vacation. The criminal story is not than unusual but the information about one of Erlunder's coworker is. The author has tried to deviate and give you an in depth background into Ms. Elinborg's life and family and her conduct of the investigation. I found this interesting in that she has a different method of the investigation and she uses a different type of interview techniques than Erlunder's. I look forward to future books involving her. "

    " Terrific mystery, kept me guessing whodidit all the way to the end. I had a hard time putting it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jer Hogan | 12/21/2013

    " Standard Crime Novel from Iceland. You get the sense of cold winter and small-town claustrophobia as well as big-city Reykjavik. This novel doesn't feature Indridadson's usual protagonist Erlendur but does feature his colleagues Elinborg and Sigurdur Oli. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 11/15/2013

    " Bit different from the usual Indridason style: no grumpy Erlendur for a start! Giving the under-used Elinborg the limelight in this one was definitely a refreshing change, and the plot was exciting without ever verging on the ridiculous. A classy, intelligent thriller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gerda | 11/2/2013

    " Enjoyable as ever. This one was better than his previous one. His main character was not in this book, one of the other inspectors took over and her personal life was described in full detail. I liked the change in approach. Combined with a good crime case to solve makes this a very good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trish | 10/29/2013

    " An Inspector Erlendur novel translated from Icelandic. Interesting but with a different writing style that I'm not sure I like--just doesn't quite flow--kind of a lot of random comments thrown in. But I will read another book by him to see if the style and characters become more likable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joyce Deanell | 10/11/2013

    " I like this author very much. This book had a excellent story with Elinborg as the lead detective. Looking forward to the next book in series. "

    " Fairly run of the mill crime novel. Found it difficult to get interested in it. Not at all gripping... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniele Martin | 1/4/2013

    " It took me some time to get into this book.No Erlendur! "

    " I quite enjoyed this book. I sometimes get tired of the moodiness of his usual main character, Erlendur. So it was nice to get to know Erlinborg better. She's definitely a very capable police officer. "
