This is the third noir mystery to feature Police Inspector Erlandur Sveinsson of Reykjavik, Iceland. I enjoyed the local details of the cold, dark Nordic winter. The characters are well developed, if a little depressed and morose as the detectives try to find the murderer of a hotel Santa, and Erlendur deals with family tragedies from his youth and the present including his daughter’s drug problems.
RATING: * * * * Very, very good
