Ketilsey Island, 1960. Near this deserted island off the western coast of Iceland, the dawning of spring brings with it new life for the local wildlife. But for the decaying body discovered by three seal hunters, winter is a matter of permanence. After it is found to be a Danish cryptographer missing for months, the ensuing investigation uncovers a mysterious link between him and a medieval manuscript known as the Book of Flatey. Before long another body is found on Flatey, another tiny island off the western coast. This time, in the ancient Viking tradition, the victim’s back has been mutilated with the so-called blood eagle. Kjartan, the district magistrate’s representative sent to investigate the crime, soon finds himself descending into the dark, dangerous world of ancient legends, symbology, and secret societies to find the killer. Viktor Arnar Ingolfsson’s Glass Key–nominated Nordic mystery captures the era with visceral authenticity and the austere quiet of a world far off the beaten track. Full of surprising humor, complex clues, and brooding intensity, The Flatey Enigma is so captivating you won’t be able to put the book down until Kjartan has cracked the code.

    " Ik vond het nog een goed boek, maar ik heb het toch meer voor thrillers. En dit is toch meer literatuur. En daar is niets mis mee natuurlijk, maar het is niet echt mijn ding. Toen ik de achterflap las had ik toch meer spanning verwacht. Dit is een boek dat ik had gewonnen en ik denk niet dat ik het zou gekocht hebben anders. Gewoon omdat het niet bij de thrillers hoort die ik meestal lees. "

    " A good story, but quite slow... It was difficult to keep interested in this book due to it's poor English translation. Not really my style. "

    " Great characters and setting--made me want to visit Iceland. I have been reading a lot of books about Iceland lately and I think this is as good as any of them. "

    " Excellent translation of a weird story that I enjoyed very much, especially the small-town Icelandic setting and vivid personalities. "
