órnarlömbin Þó þekkir hann hvorugt þeirra Yrsa Sigurðardóttir bregst ekki lesendum sínum með þessari mögnuðu glæpasögu. The Legacy is the first book in the Children s House series and it s the first book I ve read by Yrsa Sigur ard ttir I ve actually read a couple of books by Sigur ard ttir since I finished this book and I find her books really good One thing I loved about this book and the rest I ve read by the author is that its setting is on Iceland Another thing I liked is the main characters psychologist Freyja and police officer Huldar who have to work together solving a murder case where a child is the only witness The murder was uite brutal and little Margret could also be in danger To make matter worse Freyja and Huldar have a kind of past and they are not pleased that they have to work together especially not Freyja But for the sake of the child and to solve the case must they try to work together to find out why someone would want to kill the womanI found the Legacy to be a very interesting book especially that the answers were in the past I thought it was a great change that for once read about a child psychologist and Freyja s frosty relationship with Huldar was amusing which was needed in an otherwise very dark book I especially liked the last part of the book when I started to realize the truth and when everything started to get a bit dangerous for Huldar The Legacy is a great crime novel and I m looking forward to reading the next book in the series Thanks HarperCollins Nordic for the review copy

Morðinginn aftur til skarar skríða Radíóamatör fær sérkennileg skilaboð á öldum ljósvakans sem tengja hann við bæði f. I thoroughly enjoyed this slice of Nordic Noir It was a gripping thriller with plenty of twists and turns red herrings and imaginative murder weapons I found the murder scenes themselves edge of seat frightening but without being unnecessarily gory in their descriptions The characters including children and young people were well written and believable Yes there were some amazing coincidences pulling the whole thing together but that is often par for the course to keep any mystery going This is the best thrillermystery I have read in a long time and I am pleased to hear that the second book in the series has been translated into English as I will definitely be keen to read from this author
