    Iceland’s best-selling novelist and a winner of the CWA Gold Dagger Award, Arnaldur Indridason is an international phenomenon highly regarded for his engrossing crime fiction. In Hypothermia, Inspector Erlendur contends with personal demons while investigating a woman’s suicide. Although there are no signs of foul play, Erlendur gradually exposes a sinister plot.

    Overall

    I like mysteries, but this writer does something more. Arnauldur Indridason's stories are thought provoking long after the book is finished. This tale creeps up on you. This is my favorite Inspector Erlender story and the narrator does an excellent job with the characters and the Icelandic names. The end was very moving.
    I hope Audible will procure more of Indridason's books. Really excellent!

    An unidentified corpse is recovered from a peat bog on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland. News of the discovery soon reaches Fin Macleod. However, since swapping his life in Edinburgh for a quiet existence on Lewis, such mysteries are no longer a concern for the former Detective Inspector. Or so he thought. The sequel to the Blackhouse which was selected for the WH Smith Richard and Judy Bookclub, and the second book in the Lewis triology.

    "Audible, please get all Peter May's books!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Lewis Man to be better than the print version?

    Not having read the print version, I don't know. However, Peter May creates such an extraordinary and complete dream in the reader's mind, I am sure it would be excellent.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lewis Man?

    I could pick several which would constitute spoilers, but the one where the main character, Finn, is punched by the village reverend is a great one.


    What does Peter Forbes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Peter Forbes disappears, and Scotland is completely unveiled. His narration is SO good, I barely noticed him. I just heard and saw the places and people. That's the highest compliment I can render to a reader, and I'm hard to please.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I just felt it was very very good, and it has stayed with me the way a good book does.


    Any additional comments?

    Like the title of my review, please get all of Peter May's Scottish stories and please get Peter Forbes to narrate more!
