INSPECTOR ERLENDUR RETURNS IN THIS ICY, INTENSE REYKJAVIK THRILLEROn an icy January day, the Reykjavik police are called to a block of apartments where a body has been found in the garden: a young, dark-skinned boy is frozen to the ground in a pool of blood. Erlendur and his team embark on their investigation and soon unearth tensions simmering beneath the surface of Iceland’s outwardly liberal, multicultural society. Meanwhile, the boy’s murder forces Erlendur to confront the tragedy in his own past.  Master crime writer Arnaldur Indridason's Arctic Chill renders a vivid portrait of Iceland's brutal, little-known culture wars in a taut, fast-paced police procedural.

While an interesting look at Icelandic society and the struggles immigrants have adapting to both the extreme weather conditions and the rather insular culture, this entry just was not quite up to its predecessors high quality in both plot and writing flow.

Really liked this. It's very fragmented but somehow that just adds to the mood without causing confusion so I think it must have been well constructed. Yes a boy dies - and sets off cascades of actions and feelings in everyone - but otherwise an oddly gentle book.

3.0 Arctic Chill: An Inspector Erlendur Novel (Reykjavik Thriller)
This excellent, if characteristically sad chapter in the Inspector Erlendur series follows the team as they work through the murder of Thai child in a Reykjavik housing project -- a crime which has laid bare the rise of anti-immigrant sentiment amid Iceland's economic stagnation. As always, the per...
