    I like this series and I like Gunna Thankfully she's not tragically flawed and wallowing in it Nor is she's not over the top uirky and sassy She's on the leading edge of middle agedness and a young grandmother trying to balance her home life and job as a police detective I really like her oh so sneaky dry humor that ambushed me throughout the bookCold Steal begins with a murder investigation crime scene investigation assigned to Gunna's nemesis while Gunna is assigned to research the victim's background She ends up all over the place solving all sorts of crimes even some assigned to her nemesis She's smart and intuitive and not afraid to act on her intuitionnor is she afraid to literally tackle the bad guys and ache laterCold Steal is a complicated and twisty story with a multitude of characters and bad guysand baby mammas Overall a fast paced story with great characters and a very satisftory ending with only a little ? cliff hanger Hopefully uentin Bates is working on that

    The stories keep getting better and better Also liked the story about Gunna's son Gisli and his now three women But the main story was good as always A little sorry for the thief

    I really enjoy this series set in and around ReRej Reykjavík Iceland The main character Sgt Gunnhildur Gísladóttir now works for the major crimes unit in the city but still lives in her rural village an hour away One of the reasons I enjoy this is the well balanced approach with character development and inclusion of the protagonist's personal life interspersed with the mystery Gunna is experiencing some stress in her life as she has recently become a grandmother not normally a bad thing but the two boys arrived within weeks of each other one produced by her son's steady girlfriend and the other the result of his one time fling Normally fairly close to him they've been on the outs and she wishes he would choose one of the girls and get on with things There are a couple of different cases the team is working on that as always seem to intersect Although it's Iceland's largest city Reykjavik isn't that large about 125000 people so the big time criminals often have their fingers in several pies at once The case begins with the execution style murder of a businessman who had been living mostly in Copenhagen for several years and ends up going in all different directions with financial crimes possible drug and smuggling connections Well written excellently narrated easy to follow and read styleI don't know why this series isn't popular It was only available on Kindle and audio and my library didn't carry either one so I ended up buying it from audible Well worth the credit And I've purchased the next one too always happy to support what I call undervalued and underrated authorsmany of my favorites seem to fall in this category as I don't tend to go in for the usual best selling baloney LOL

    This story has several parts to it that all eventually come together in the end but at times you aren't sure how they are connected It keeps switching back and forth between scenes involving different characters Officer Gunnhilder Gunna is called to assist at a crime scene where a man has been murdered A colleague who has been promoted over her is in charge and she enjoys it when he is having difficulties As the story progresses she gets involved in several other crimes with her team There is a guy who is burglarizing houses all over the city and one of the guys on her team thinks he can figure out who the guy is before the boss does The murder victim is not a very nice person and while looking into his life they encounter several of his business partners who are also a bit unsavory They can't seem to find several of them and the ones they do find are not very cooperative Gunna is also dealing with her son and the fact that he has 2 girlfriends which he has children with Gunna is helping take care of one of the girlfriends and her grandchild and she is not happy with her son She is working a lot of long hours and her partner helps out a lot at home The lives of the various criminals are depicted in parts of the story as it switches back and forth and several other people are killed It is a bit of a convoluted story but I enjoyed it Set in Iceland there is talk about what happened during the financial crisis and how it has effected people and continues to do so Many lost their jobs and now to menial work as highlighted by the house cleaners in the story Also talks about some of the problems Iceland suffers from such as the influx of drugs

    Pleased to catch up with this I like Gunna and her dry humour and Iike the Icelandic setting I missed this one originally because I don't do that gadget and it seemed this story was not going to appear in hard copy but it showed up in large print so Lots of gritty eastern European criminality plus a rather likeable home grown rogue who cones off rather badly from his various contacts with the underworld There is some good description of the unforgiving Icelandic landscape when one of the characters a city dweller is dumped in a remote location and survives on what turns out to be several years old dried fish Splendid except for the fate of the rogue and there's a bit of a personal cliffhanger for Gunna at the end too

  9. Sharon Storm Sharon Storm says:

    The story was interesting but there were too many characters to keep track of and there was too much personal drama Parts of the story dealt with three women who worked for a housecleaning service and there was too much space devoted to their personal lives The book could have been trimmed a bit I liked Gunna the main character She’s an emotionally strong woman and that was the main reason I kept reading Might read another in the series but not too soon

    Very well done addition to this Icelandic police procedural series A number of characters are profiled both police and criminals We see their stories as they progress to a head on collision and I found myself rooting for some of the criminals as well as the policeA bit of a surprise ending that sets us up for the next book
