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 strands in which the two stories are intertwined are ridicously thin Honestly one or the other story would have been interesting but put together this way just doesn t work I m really disappointed in this Partly because I have enjoyed this series so much and partly because the book is just not good

summary Svörtuloft

download ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB à Arnaldur Indriðason Arnaldur Indriðason à 3 read Svörtuloft review Ò eBook or Kindle ePUB Nvestigating a murder without revealing his own reasons for being present at the murder scene Moving from the villas of Reykjavik's banking elite to a sordid basement flat Black Skies is a superb story of greed pride and murder from one of Europe's most successful crime write. 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 raAlthough 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 sceneMeanwhile 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 past misdemeanoursSuch is Indridason s skill as a writer that the elevation of Sigurdur li as a central character worked very well Instead of once focusing on the the fertility problems experienced by him and Bergth ra we see instead the toll that it has taken on their relationship and the separate paths they are now following The emphasis on the personal seemed to chime in with the plot Sigurdur is pressurised by a personal acuaintance to investigate a blackmail plot and when things start to disintegrate this friend unfairly blames Sigurdur for coming to the attention of the policeAlthough the blackmail plot is related to husband and wife swapping parties thankfully this isn t at the centre of the book Instead the focus is on the greed of bankers and those in associated professions at the height of the economic boom As the author makes clear it is not only the selfishness of the bankers that is to blame for the spiralling debt situation but the archaic Icelandic laws which fail to provide a legal structure to address financial abuseThe book was as usual an engrossing read and although the relevance of the man with the mask wasn t initially clear the links are eventually made The book is full of incidental detail including reference to the absent Erlundur Sigurdur s relationship with his divorced parents and the despair of the police at the justice system which fails to keep repeat offenders off the streets As readers of Indridason will know these are themes that crop up again and again in his writing
