Snowblind was another book on my radar that sounded amazing so I knew I had to get it! (I’m an advertisers dream 🙂 )
Jónasson writes Icelandic Noir, with Nightblind to follow. I’ve not read and Icelandic based books before, just the usual Scandinavian (Nesbo, Holt, Mankell et Al.) thrillers.
Snowblind was beautifully written, the landscape alone makes for good reading. The book follows Ari Thór after being posted to a new position in Siglufjöður, a very quiet fishing village in the north of the country.
This is a place where nothing happens, but of course, these things change very quickly. I don’t want to go into the plot. It’s a really good story though, plenty of twists and turns between the characters.
It’s a really enjoyable read, cold and well paced.
I gave it 4 stars on Goodreads.
