    In this tenth book in the Inspector Erldendur series, a different member of the investigative team Detective li looks into the murder of a woman who engages in wife swapping activities The book can be read as a standalone Though nominally an Inspector Erlendur novel the detective in this book is his team member, Sigurdur li In Reykjav k, Iceland, Detective Sigurdur li is approached for a favor by his friend Patrekur It seems that Patrekur s sister in law and her husband have engaged in a spot of wife swapping and are being blackmailed by another swinger couple, Lina and Ebbi Patrekur asks Sigurdar li to pressure the blackmailers to back off and to get the incriminating photos of his relatives Sigurdur li goes to the blackmailing couple s house at the exact moment Lina is being viciously attacked with a baseball bat and fatally injured The attacker runs past Sigurdur li and escapes Despite his personal involvement in the case Sigurdur li joins the investigative team He soon discovers that Lina and Ebbi owe a large amount of money and frequently engage in extramarital trysts Thus the detective team looks for suspects among Reykjav k s debt collectors as well as men who have received sexual favors from Lina Meanwhile Sigurdur li is repeatedly contacted by an elderly alcoholic tramp, Andr s, who has has taken an old man hostage and tied him up in a basement Andr s is incoherent, however, ...

    I appreciate the subtle art in the construction of this police procedural set in Iceland The plot concerns the bludgeoning murder of a woman accountant known to be involved with her husband in wife swapping The protagonist in this 10th novel in a series is Sigurdur li, a colleague of the usual lead detective, Erlendur, whom I encountered in Jar City He is ordinary in many ways, not brilliant, notably courageous, or driven by ideals, but he doggedly works to get the job done He discovers the victim while acting on behalf of a friends request to discourage a blackmail attempt involving a family member who participated in the wife swapping That would be an obvious motive for murder, but the woman s association with a group of bankers involved in financial shenanigans deserves exploration as well The case leads li down pathways that bring him into the lives of both the poor, downtrodden and the financial high fliers of this liberal society As a conservative working class member of this culture, he is disgusted by the apparently laziness and excuses of the criminals of the lower classes...

    Arnaldur was quoted in an interview recently as saying I have no understanding of financial markets but I understand that people can be greedy For an author who claims little understanding, he has probably written a lucid and accurate account of the reasons behind Iceland s 2008 crash than anything else I have read Cheap off shore credit, poor government oversight and regulation, shonky financial products and the whole neoliberal economic philosophy even Milton Freidman is obliquely referenced are all referred to here, as is the rampant greed and reckless overconsumption that swept the whole western world in recent years.But writing economic commentaries is not Arnaldur s stock in trade he writes about people, their tragedies, motivations, stupidity or wisdom As always, he is a master of interweaving his themes with various plots For example, he uses the economic climate in part to show the development and changes of attitudes in his central character, Sigurdur Oli But a greater instrument for change is Sigurdur Oli s attempts to understand his own parents as a result of the breakdown of his partnership with Bergthora He is also humanised by his dealings with the tragic Andreas, a...

    Since I reserve 1 rating for books I hate, this gets 2 Huge disappointment and total waste of time I bought this book before I had a falling out with the author s works and it took me a long time before I picked it up I wish I hadn t I wish I d just let it go unread It is bleak, depressing and boring from start to finish There is not a likeable character in sight There is nothing wrong with the plot...

    Arnaldur Indri ason con i suoi romanzi ci ha aiutato a conoscere meglio la storia islandese e i cambiamenti sociali avvenuti dal dopoguerra La signora in verde, Un corpo nel lago al boom economico dei primi anni del millennio Protagonista di questo romanzo proprio il senso di onnipotenza che prevale in Islanda negli anni della grande bolla speculativa che di l a poco sarebbe scoppiata con tutte le conseguenze che conosciamo in cui quasi tutti vivono al di sopra delle loro possibilit indebitandosi e i confini del bene e del male diventano talmente sfumati da essere quasi invisibili La banca nazionale islandese, comunemente nota come Sv rtuloft traduzione cielo nero .Non sar Erlendur a indagare tra nuovi ricchi e l onnipresente disagio sociale ma il suo collega Sigur ur li, un poliziotto molto diverso dal nostro caro ispettore scarsamente empatico, poco incline ai sensi di colpa e all introspezione, impulsivo e pieno di pregiudizi Le scogliere di Sv rtuloft cielo nero in Islanda.Un bel cambiamento che per , secondo me, non rende meno piacevole la lettura sempre che siate interessati pi agli aspetti sociali e meno all elemento poliziesco a differenza di quanto accade in Un doppio sospetto dove l indagine condotta da El nborg un altra collega di Erlendur si stempera troppo nelle problematiche familiari e nel tocco femminile dello stile investigativo Dal 2011, la prima sala concerti appositamente costruita a Reykjav k ha ospitato l Islanda Symphony ...

    What a mess of a book I ve really enjoyed this series until this book In the course of the series, Sigurdur Oli was the character I liked the least and this story didn t help He is a snob and a boring one at that There doesn t seem any other police officers working other than the one that tells him off As for the plot, it is so thin you can read a newspaper through it and that would probably be a better use of your time The ...

    Arnaldur has a skill for developing characters, even though the characters are unlikable Another thing I like about this writer is that the violence is off stage I am still kicking myself for reading Jo Nesbo, as I don t need his images in my head Arnaldur s stories are gritty, but without graphic depictions of violence He leaves it to the reader to fill in the blanks.I was anxious to read a new Inspector Erlendur novel but he, himself, appeared nowhere As a result, the entire n...

    Like other fans of Erlendur, I was worried that a Erlendur mystery without Erlendur might fall a little flat Plus, Erlendur s colleague Sigurdur li, the protagonist of Black Skies is not a very likeable character Erlendur is endlessly morose and fascinating That had not been my impression of boring Sigurdur li Ok, I was wrong about all of this I should have trusted Indri ason Ostensibly about a murder that is the result of blackmail, there are really three crimes, two related and one unrelated But the characters are what set Indri ason mysteries apart from the rest In Black Skies he offers a nuanced portrait Sigurdur li and completes the heartbreaking story of another character whom readers met in Arctic Chill, Andres Indri ason departs from his usual narrative to fill in the complicated background of Sigurdur li His mother, now an accountant, has been divorced from his father, a plumber, for many years His mother seems to be cold and unforgiving His father tried everything he could to keep the marriage together he became a doormat And Sig...

    The last book by Arnaldur Indridason, Outrage, saw the usual protagonist of the series, detective Erlunder disappear for an extended leave of absence and the investigation taken up by his female colleague, Elinborg I enjoyed the book but missed the character of Erlunder so was slightly apprehensive when I noticed he had not yet returned for Black Skies This time, the central police figure is Sigurdur li, known in previous books mainly for his attempts to become a parent with his partner Bergth ra.Although written in 2009, the book is set in 2005, at the height of Icelandic economic boom Sigurdur li attends a high school reunion and notes with dismay that most of his contemporaries have become rich from the country s economic success However the friend of one his classmates is being blackmailed after he and his wife were photographed at a swingers party Sigurdur li agrees to pay a visit to the blackmailer but before he can speak to her, he surprises an attack on the woman by an unknown assailant Sigurdur is now in a difficult situation as he tries to remain involved in the police investigation without revealing the reasons for his presence at the murder scene.Meanwhile an elderly man has been taken prisoner and had placed over his head a leather mask fixed with a spike, similar to those used by Icelandic farmers to kill their animals It is clear that a disturbed individual is extracting revenge for...
