In British author Bates' solid follow-up to 2010's Frozen Assets, Gunnhildur 'Gunna' Gisladottir, now a sergeant with the Serious Crime Unit in Reykjavik, Iceland, looks into the murder of minor celebrity Svana Geirs, who hosted a TV fitness show and was intimately involved with various athletes and business figures...Bates, who lived ten years in Iceland...manages to engage the reader as Gunna explores the prominent men who knew Svana and deals with Magnusson's carnage.-- "Publishers Weekly"
More routine than Gunna's debut, but still required reading for anyone who wants a sense of how calamitous Iceland's meltdown was-and what just might be in store for American police procedurals next.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
Porter is undaunted by the names of local people and places and smoothly transitions between the many characters. The complex mystery is centered on what appears to be separate crimes: the murder of a beautiful woman and an escaped convict's assaults on his former associates. Porter moves the dialogue along quickly as the skillful negotiations of Gunna and her team reveal that the case is not a simple murder and that its political overtones must be reckoned with.-- "AudioFile"
Twisty, complex, and dark.-- "Booklist" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

Icelandic, and Icelandic names aren't easy - and everybody has at least one nickname as well - so you need to keep your wits about you, and pay attention. Mind you, you should be doing that anyway 😀
Gunna will repay your effort in spades.
the fascinating Sergeant Gunnhildur.She has been moved
from her rural post to head-up a new serious crime unit
in the capital,Reykjavik.
She and her small team are faced with both tracking down
a violent escaped prisoner,and dealing with the murder of
a female socialite TV personality.As the somewhat complex
plot develops ,figures in the political and business elite
Aside from an engaging plot, this novel touches on the many
ways in which the financial crash affected the whole rubric
of Iceland and its citizens,and also there is the marvellous
character of Gunnhildur-caring,sharp and witty.
