An sudden visitor, a liar, a killer. Not all will survive the night time. And Detective Hulda shall be haunted without end . . .
I used to be so impressed by this ebook. I’ve by no means learn any Icelandic crime ebook and I now need to learn so many extra. The setting was simply perfect- as I discussed in my final evaluation I really like books set in rural, remoted environments. This was definitely that! The couple barely even left their home within the winter and needed to ski to the native village. Erla mentions that she has run out of books and may’t get anymore from the library due to the snow… like I feel we will all agree that’s an absolute nightmare😩 I usually don’t like books with detectives or police concerned however I cherished Detective Hulda. I discovered her story equally as engrossing as that of Einar and Erla. The story comes collectively fairly shortly but it surely fully comes together- I wasn’t left questioning about something. All the pieces was cleared up. I cherished the refined clues left all through and the seemingly mysterious connections between the characters that got here collectively so properly on the finish. I’m actually wanting ahead to studying extra from this writer and to studying extra Icelandic crime fiction.
