It's 1955. Two young couples move to the uninhabited, isolated fjord of Hedinsfjordur. Their stay ends abruptly when one of the women meets her death in mysterious circumstances. The case is never solved. Fifty years later an old photograph comes to light, and it becomes clear that the couple may not have been alone on the fjord after all....

"Traditional and beautifully finessed...morally more equivocal than most traditional whodunnits, and it offers alluring glimpses of darker, and infinitely more threatening horizons." (Independent)

"old fashioned skills"
This lovely mystery is straight forward question and answer detective work. The author tosses in an old box of papers, a photo dated 1956, a couple of old timers with sharp memories and a kidnapped child. I cannot easily follow the characters because their Icelandic names are difficult to translate into easy English names - except for the one that sounds like "Snoty." A very good who done it. Not violent. not dark.
Do really enjoy these books, the narration is good and helps me learning Icelandic pronunciation
"A winter's tale"
I think this is not the best in the series, but it does develop the stories of characters met in previous books. I think the most intriguing part was the cover picture.
OK, I admit like in all good stories I wanted to know the bones like the whos, whys and the rest which kept me glued to the end, it was the buts that left a feeling of " could be better". Having said that I do look forward to the next in the series because I would like to know what will happen to these people that I have got know.
Narrations was good and his voice was good, not knowing if his Icelandic pronunciation was good I felt the story was well told of a tale told in front of a fire ona dark winter's night of ghouls and ghosts.
