I've decided that for my participation in the Crime Fiction Alphabet in 2012 I will highlight recently read books or their authors.
So they'll all come from my 2012 Reviews.
At least that's the plan.
I had a few choices this week for the letter E including
- THE HOUSE AT SEA'S END, Elly Griffiths
- BELIEVING THE LIE, Elizabeth George
- THE FLATEY ENIGMA, Viktor Arnar Ingolfsson
- THE END OF EVERYTHING, Megan Abbott
This is a novel set on two levels - the primary level the investigation into the death of a body found on a remote Icelandic island.
The nearest "big" island is Flatey and it appears the body has been dead for some time. So it is not a case of real urgency for the Reijkavik Police Department and so they've assigned Kjartan, who has just started working for the district magistrate in a clerical capacity.
Kjartan has to determine who the dead man is and how he died. While he does that he will stay with Grimur, the administrative officer for the district of Flatey. more
