Publisher's Summary

Ari Thor returns to investigate a chilling series of crimes that are rooted in tragic events from the past.

Siglufjörður: an idyllically quiet fishing village on the northernmost tip of Iceland, accessible only via a small mountain tunnel.

Ari Thór Arason: a local policeman whose tumultuous past and uneasy relationships with the villagers continue to haunt him. The peace of this close-knit community is shattered by the murder of a policeman - shot at point-blank range in the dead of night in a deserted house.

With a killer on the loose and the dark arctic winter closing in, it falls to Ari Thór to piece together a puzzle that involves tangled local politics, a compromised new mayor, and a psychiatric ward in Reykjavik, where someone is being held against their will.

Then a mysterious young woman moves to the area, on the run from something she dare not reveal, and it becomes all too clear that tragic events from the past are weaving a sinister spell that may threaten them all.

Dark, chilling and complex, Nightblind is an extraordinary thriller from an undeniable new talent.

TERRIBLE casting choice!

Any additional comments?

A wonderful book completely ruined by the narration. It's an ICELANDIC mystery! The British accent and artificial drama makes it sound like a wannabe Sherlock Holmes. And then the narrator trots out his fleet of "voices", applying, apparently at random, weird Scottish, Irish, or low English accents to the ICELANDIC characters (is this profiling? Are we supposed to infer Icelanders are uneducated because they get the "lesser" English accents? -the villains get the lowest "voice" of course, immediately signalling their guilt). An awful, awful production decision - practically unbearable to listen to. This author and this series are not to be missed, but for god's sake- READ this one.
