Publisher's Summary

A huge best seller in England, France, and Australia, this is the third book in the Dark Iceland series from a spectacular new crime writer.

On the shores of a tranquil fjord in northern Iceland, a man is brutally beaten to death on a bright summer's night. As the 24-hour light of the arctic summer is transformed into darkness by an ash cloud from a recent volcanic eruption, a young reporter leaves Reykajvik to investigate on her own, unaware that an innocent person's life hangs in the balance. Ari Thor Arason and his colleagues on the tiny police force in Siglufjordur struggle with an increasingly perplexing case, while their own serious personal problems push them to the limit. What secrets does the dead man harbor, and what is the young reporter hiding? As silent, unspoken horrors from the past threaten them all, and the darkness deepens, it's a race against time to find the killer before someone else dies.

Dark, terrifying, and complex, Blackout is an exceptional, atmospheric thriller from one of Iceland's finest crime writers. A 2016 London Guardian Best Book of the Year in Readers' Picks.

Just Not Good

This is an awful book. I pre-ordered it, and was looking forward to it's release. I have read the previous books in this series, and they were all pretty good. This one is not. The characters get more and more unlikable. The story line is full of absurd coincidences, impossible conclusions, and pointless meandering. I kept reading, hoping it would all come together and get better, but it did not. Several plot lines, none of which were developed enough, or tied together with the others. Shouldn't have wasted the time. Take a pass on this book.
