Reads like a great thriller. Incredibly interesting, even for someone from Iceland, where this mystery has been a part of the nation for decades
Extraordinary . . . What the case says about the reliability of memory and the uncanny power of stories over our minds . . . for anyone who believes in justice, is the most disturbing part of a deeply disturbing and utterly compelling story.
Riveting, cleverly structured . . . gripping.
What a fabulous read. As well as being a fascinating exploration of an appalling miscarriage of justice, it also offered an intriguing glimpse into Icelandic history and modern society. I haven't enjoyed visiting Iceland this much since I watched Trapped!
Fascinating . . . bristles with a sense of underlying menace and darkness, which makes for compelling reading. The brutal desolation of Icelandic landscape and the exploration of local myths, beliefs and cultural history form a wonderfully rich backdrop to the multifaceted central mystery.
