Publisher's Summary

One cold autumn night, a woman is found hanging from a beam at her holiday cottage. At first sight, it appears like a straightforward case of suicide; María had never recovered from the death of her mother two years previously and she had a history of depression.

But then the friend who found her body approaches Detective Erlendur with a tape of a séance that María attended before her death and his curiosity is aroused. Driven by a need to find answers, Erlendur begins an unofficial investigation into María's death. But he is also haunted by another unsolved mystery - the disappearance of two young people 30 years ago - and by his own quest to find the body of his brother, who died in a blizzard when he was a boy. Hypothermia is Indridason's most compelling novel yet.

    "Chilling. What else?"

    Let the gloomy world of Idridason chill you. Life can be bleak, it seems. Thankfully, we have good books and terrific readers. Like this one.

    Story
    "Dark gloomy Icelandic brilliant ."

    A journey that winds through the decades as it in turn winds through the Icelandic scenery, so beautifully described. It transports the reader to a distant land that one feels like they have visited as the text is so well written. Unlike this review...

    Story
    "Such a silly, unoriginal story."
    What would have made Hypothermia better?

    Plotting was simplistic and completely lacking in any surprises. A predictable mystery is such a disappointment.


    What will your next listen be?

    Back to far more complex, literary writers.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    This narrator is usually tolerable but it seems that he was unable to counteract the melodramatic dialogue with even a modicum of gravity. The attempt to mimic the female characters ( unnecessary) was quite an uncomfortable listen.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The attempt to use Iceland as an exotic locale was fair but almost every other example of Nordic mystery I have read has done that task so much better.


    Any additional comments?

    How difficult it is to discern what might be a good listen when there are often skewed reviews to assist prospective listeners.
