S in one of Iceland s better neighborhoods Found in Translation hauntsim as wellFor people who Folktales from the Moose of Burkina Faso have given this book less than a good rating because they found the crimes uninteresting or even boring well you re certainly entitled to your opinion and it s certainly true that people approach books differently but if you re judging this book on the basis of the crimes and crime solving in my opinion you mayave missed the point The very best element of Reykjavik Nights imho is not found in the crimes in the idea that true evil doesn t discriminate between the best and worst neighborhoods in any city in the social issues or even in Erlendur s clandestine investigations It lies with Erlendur Sveinsson Jeou p'ou t'ouan ou la chair comme tapis de prire himself Even thoughe s very young and Frankenstein; or The Modern Prometheus hasn t yet started on the career path as a detective wheree ends up with the dream team of colleagues Sigurdur Oli and Elinborg the Erlendur whom readers know from the regular series novels is all anchored right ere the loner the traditionalist the seeker of lost souls Since I know ow things are going to turn out for Do No Harm him later I found myself for example actually upset whene started dating future ex wife Halldora because well as everyone knows that s just not going to turn out well It The Poseidon Adventure hit me while reading this book justow very much I ve ended up investing in Erlendur over several years that may sound kind of stupid since How to Stop Drinking Alcohol and End Drug Addiction he s a fictional character but I suppose it means that Indridasonas created a character whose life I actually cared about To be very blunt I can t Le tour du monde en uatre vingts jours honestly say that about most the characters in most crime fiction novels I read I think this book works best for people who ve already read the entire series It s much simplistic than the other novels and I m inclined to believe that the author did that on purpose to keep the focus on Erlendurimself rather than on the crimes I appreciated the obviously slower pace for that very reason The proliferation of ScandinavianNordic crime fiction is fascinating to me At first I thought it was just a fad that would die out eventually but no it s still a big deal than a decade later And it should be too because all the ones I The Iron Raven (The Iron Fey: Evenfall, have readave been greatThis book is by an author from Iceland andnaturally enough is set in Iceland It is actually a preuel to the main series which features Detective Erlendur In this book Erlendur is still a young traffic officerAt the very beginning of the book an alcoholic tramp is found drowned in a pond A year later Erlendur is still thinking about this case which was pretty much immediately closed And it turns out that on the same weekend as that drowning a woman went missing on The Kindest Lie her wayome from a club Even though Uncivil Rites he is a traffic cop Erlandur starts looking into both these cases Maybe they are related In order to find out you llave to read the bookThis book as all the elements I like in a crime novel Interesting characters good suspense uite few false Leads The Crimes Aren and the crimes aren solved until the very end of the book What could you ask for And to top it all off Erlendur collects booksLuckily for me I aven t read any of the main series so I will shortly be reading the first one to be translated into English anyway It s called Jar CityThe only slight problem I ad was trying to pronounce some of the place names Skolavordustigur and Hverfisgata for instance I purchased several books by Arnaldur "Indri Ason At Our "ason at our book sale this winter but rather than read them out of order I decided to start with the preuel Reykjav k Nights Murder in Reykjav k This full length novel which is translated from Icelandic by Victoria Cribb features traffic patrolman Erlendur Sveinsson Having just finished a five book series filled with switchblade wielding murderesses rapists and anarchist this book was almost boring or ighly refreshing take your pick I choose the latter The pace is slow but steady Erlendur is a young policeman who works the night shift where The Best I Can Be he deals with drunk drivers domestic disturbances loiterers and traffic accidents The story opens with Erlendur being first officer on the scene when a pair of boys come upon the body of a vagrant in a pool of water He recognizes the man Hannibal as someonee Killers of the Flower Moon : Oil, Money, Murder and the Birth of the FBI has spoken with on a number of occasions After a timee can t get the man out of Daughter of the Alien Warrior Treasured by the Alien his mind ande begins investigating on Fire on the Water his own timeEventuallye links the case of a missing woman to Hannibal s death since they both occurred about the same time Could both Once Upon an Eid have been murdered Erlendur goes about making inuiries with those who knew both of the deceased He talks to street people and to the sister of Hannibal This uiet private man who shares so little ofis personal feelings with Ten Doors Down his girlfriend is extremely charitable toward the down trodden acuaintances of Hannibal a mane knew so little about Now that man is dead and The Perfect Girlfriend he cares deeply about whatappened to My Promised Land: The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel him This speaks volumes about who Erlendur is as a man Those whom others disregard as unworthy vagrants Erlendur treat asuman beingsThe plot is not especially complex but there were enough suspects to Moving Targets (Spider Shepherd: SAS Book 2) hold my interest I wanted to see if Hannibal s death and Oddn s disappearance were truly related I found it curious that Erlendur was able to conductis own private investigation for so long that seemed a bit unrealistic to me especially since ROMANCE he often did not identifyimself as a cop It works as a preuel Chosen for Greatness however because we seeow Eyes off the Prize The United Nations and the African American Struggle for Human Rights 19441955 his determination and persistence pay off Heas intelligence good instincts and compassion I look forward to seeing Rescued by Tordin (Olodian Alien Warrior, him at work as an inspector in future books 4
