My take on the book
Do I recommend Well, may be.
Reasons being >A murder mystery which is set up in Iceland. 

>I’m not sure whether it is to be called awesome or amazing story but it reaches you and the detective in you is in action.

>Somewhere I felt it could have been trimmed. But I also felt that if it would have been trimmed it would have lost the essence. So there!

>It’s a nice story but somewhere fails to give that ‘mystery’ kick.

On the other hand >There is a map given at the start of the book which really helps the reader understand where the detective/culprit is travelling to-better understanding of the place. 

>It tells you a lot about the country.

>If you’ve read/seen The lord of rings and liked it you’ll be more than pleased to read this book.

    1. Oh but don’t expect the quality of an Agatha or Sherlock on this one..this ones different…you can also try Grisham or a Archer for that matter πŸ™‚

  1. I like the detective in you bit – totally relate with that statement. Not sure i would pick up the book though…set in iceland?? really??? i thought the humans would be too frozen to do any mysterious things.

  2. nice review.. very to the point! πŸ˜€
