#amreading Out on the Ice, Grant Nicol

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

This over the weekend for a number of reasons. Firstly "ice". It was so mind-numbingly, life-threateningly hot here over the weekend I needed distraction. Then although set in Iceland, Nicol is a New Zealander and I'm back reading a lot of NZ fiction at the moment. Finally at 98 or so pages long it was a perfect filler between forays into the stinking horrible heat to try to keep livestock pointing in the right direction.

From the Blurb:

#amreading A Place to Bury Strangers, Grant Nicol

Author Name: 

First from the last weekend's reading.

From the Blurb:

A cryptic message left next to a charred corpse in the middle of Reykjavík leaves police worried they have a gang war on their hands.

Across town Detective Grímur Karlsson investigates a missing girl from a nice suburban family and gets far too close to the truth for his own good. 

It becomes clear the two cases are connected and Karlsson doggedly pursues the trail that leads from junkies on the seedy streets of Reykjavík all the way to the very top of Icelandic society.
