    I appreciate the subtle art in the construction of this police procedural set in Iceland The plot concerns the bludgeoning murder of a woman accountant known to be involved with her husband in wife swapping The protagonist in this 10th novel in a series is Sigurdur li, a colleague of the usual lead detective, Erlendur, whom I encountered in Jar City He is ordinary in many ways, not brilliant, notably courageous, or driven by ideals, but he doggedly works to get the job done He discovers t I appreciate the subtle art in the construction of this police procedural set in Iceland The plot concerns the bludgeoning murder of a woman accountant known to be involved with her husband in wife swapping The protagonist in this 10th novel ...

    Arnaldur was quoted in an interview recently as saying I have no understanding of financial markets but I understand that people can be greedy For an author who claims little understanding, he has probably written alucid and accurate account of the reasons behind Iceland s 2008 crash than anything else I have read Cheap off shore credit, poor government oversight and regulation, shonky financial products and the whole neoliberal economic philosophy even Milton Freidman is obliquely ref Arnaldur was quoted in an interview recently as saying I have no understanding of financial markets but I understand that people can be greedy For an author who claims little understanding, he has probably written alucid and accurate account of the reasons behind Iceland s 2008 crash than anything else I have read Cheap off shore credit, poor government oversight and regulation, shonky financial products and the whole neoliberal economic philosophy even Milton Freidman is obliquely referenced are all referred to here, as is the rampant greed and reckless overconsumption that swept the whole western world in recent years.But writing economic commentaries is not Arnaldur s stock in trade he writes about people, their tragedies, motivations, stupidity or wisdom As always, he is a master of interweaving his themes with various plots For example, he uses the economic climate in part to show the development and changes of attitudes in his c...

    Since I reserve 1 rating for books I hate, this gets 2 Huge disappointment and total waste of time I bought this book before I had a falling out with the author s works and it took me a long time before I picked it up I wish I hadn t I wish I d just let it go unread It is bleak, depressing and boring from start to finish There is not a likeable character in sight There is nothing wrong with the plotting and the theme child pornography is important, but nothing of value is added Ther Since I reserve 1 rating for books I hate, this gets 2 Huge disappointment and total waste of time I bought this book before I had a falling out with the author s works and it took me a long time before I picked it up I wish I hadn t I wish I d just let it go unread It is bleak, depressing and boring from start to finish There is not a likeable character in sight There is nothing wrong with the plotting and the theme child pornography ...

    What a mess of a book I ve really enjoyed this series until this book In the course of the series, Sigurdur Oli was the character I liked the least and this story didn t help He is a snob and a boring one at that There doesn t seem any other police officers working other than the one that tells him off As for the plot, it is so thin you can read a newspaper through it and that would probably be a better use of your time The strands in which the two stories are intertwined are ridicously th What a mess of a book I ve really enjoyed this series until this book In the course of the series, Sigurdur Oli was the character I liked the least and this story didn t help He is a snob and a boring one at that There doesn t seem any other police officers working other than the one that tells him off As for the plot, it is so thin you can read a newspaper through it and that would probably be a better use of your time The st...

    Arnaldur has a skill for developing characters, even though the characters are unlikable Another thing I like about this writer is that the violence is off stage I am still kicking myself for reading Jo Nesbo, as I don t need his images in my head Arnaldur s stories are gritty, but without graphic depictions of violence He leaves it to the reader to fill in the blanks.I was anxious to read a new Inspector Erlendur novel but he, himself, appeared nowhere As a result, the entire novel fel Arnaldur has a skill for developing characters, even though the characters are un...

    Like other fans of Erlendur, I was worried that a Erlendur mystery without Erlendur might fall a little flat Plus, Erlendur s colleague Sigurdur li, the protagonist of Black Skies is not a very likeable character Erlendur is endlessly morose and fascinating That had not been my impression of boring Sigurdur li Ok, I was wrong about all of this I should have trusted Indri ason Ostensibly about a murder that is the result of blackmail, there are really three crimes, two related and one unr Like other fans of Erlendur, I was worried that a Erlendur mystery without Erlendur might fall a little flat Plus, Erlendur s colleague Sigurdur li, the protagonist of Black Skies is not a very likeable character Erlendur is endlessly morose and fascinating That had not been my impression of boring Sigurdur li Ok, I was wrong about all of this I should have trusted Indri ason Ostensibly about a murder that is the result of blackmail, there are really three crimes, two related and one unrelated But the characters are what set Indri ason mysteries apart from the rest In Black Skies he offers anuanced portrait Sigurdur li and completes the heartbreaking story of another character whom readers met in Arctic Chill, Andre...

    The last book by Arnaldur Indridason, Outrage, saw the usual protagonist of the series, detective Erlunder disappear for an extended leave of absence and the investigation taken up by his female colleague, Elinborg I enjoyed the book but missed the character of Erlunder so was slightly apprehensive when I noticed he had not yet returned for Black Skies This time, the central police figure is Sigurdur li, known in previous books mainly for his attempts to become a parent with his partner Bergt The last book by Arnaldur Indridason, Outrage, saw the usual protagonist of the series, detective Erlunder disappear for an extended leave of absence and the investigation taken up by his female colleague, Elinborg I enjoyed the book but missed the character of Erlunder so was slightly apprehensive when I noticed he had not y...

    My favorite Indridason so far There is something very readable about this series One of the main plots is grim the death mask yet Indridason presents it in a new light and the reader will be deeply moved by the conclusion Simultaneously the reader is presented with a cautionary tale of greed complicated by police force politics A third light hearted plotline about someone stealing a newspaper and Sigurdur Oli s personal life round out a great read Fans of this series will not be disappoin My favorite Indridason so far There is something very readable about this series One of the main plots is grim the death mask yet Indridason presents it in a ...
