review 1: This is so much more what I was looking for from this author when I picked up his more recent novel, Daybreak. This novel, set in the early 1970's, includes long excerpts from a series of fictitious diaries from the late twenties through WWII. I learned more of the rough histor...

review 1: First book I've read by Ingolfsson and first time he's come to my attention. Having visited Iceland I am always interested in books by Icelandic authors. I had, as usual, no idea of who the killer was and thought the mystery was kept a mystery for a good long time. Loved the s...

review 1: This book seemed very slow at the beginning as the author builds a sense of place for the story. The characters seemed a bit uninteresting to me initially although I liked Grimur and it was obvious that Kjarlton had something to hide. The use of passages from the Flatey book wa...

review 1: Viktor Ingolfsson is a very accomplished writer. I generally do not read crime but have found both the "House of Evidence" and "The Flatey Enigma" fascinating.The story of a man's attempt to bring the railway to Iceland in the first half of the 20th century does not on the face o...

review 1: I love a good mystery/crime book. It is always interesting to read a European based book once in a while to really contrast with the American approach.Daybreak is set in Iceland, there is a killer on the loose. He is killing goose hunters. It is up to Birkir and Gunnar of Reyk...

review 1: Okay, so obviously I'm enjoying how consistently Ingolfsson is. Plus I got to feel smug about having my pet theory proved correct.Anyway - the one that takes place in 1960s Iceland, rather than in modern times. I liked the idea of the setting and it was obviously well-researched ...

review 1: There are sagas, history tales, myths, legends. There are a few inhabitants on this small island. By about 78% the story seemed to take more shape. The ending ties up all mystery of the current crimes of today including the author relating more saga facts from this long history....
