    The only author to win the Glass Key Award for Best Nordic Crime Novel two years in a row, Arnaldur Indridason has sold more than five million copies of his novels in more than 25 countries. A detective whose inner turmoil threatens to consume him, Erlendur Sveinsson is charged with investigating the death of an Asian boy—and confronting forces colder than Iceland’s frigid clime.

    Sally G says: "Truly enjoyed this Icelandic dectective novel"

    What disappointed you about Arctic Chill?

    Hard to follow, slow uninteresting plot, boring to read


    What was most disappointing about Arnaldur Indridason’s story?

    It did not capture me as a reader as most mysteries to. It was not in league with other Nordic writers such as Jo Nesbo


    What didn’t you like about George Guidall’s performance?

    No problem with the reader it was the book


    What character would you cut from Arctic Chill?

    Eliminating a character would not enhance the book


    Any additional comments?

    Disappointing, 1st chapter is ok but then it goes downhill

    Harry is out of his depth. Detective Harry Hole is meant to keep out of trouble. A young Norwegian girl taking a gap year in Sydney has been murdered, and Harry has been sent to Australia to assist in any way he can. He's not supposed to get too involved. When the team unearths a string of unsolved murders and disappearances, nothing will stop Harry from finding out the truth. The hunt for a serial killer is on, but the murderer will talk only to Harry. He might just be the next victim.

    Charles Atkinson says: "Probably the best of this remarkable series."

    None

    Will Robie may have just made the first - and last - mistake of his career.... It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable: He refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people.

    Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a 14-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway....

    "The best Audible Title I have ever listened to!"

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Yes, intreging developed characters, lots of surprises


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    This I can't be specifiic but the end is captivating and totally surprising. The most memorable moment in the book without revealing too much is relationship of the strong women characters and the failed assignment which he could not do morally and because he did the right thing it weaves ir leads to a very profound and enjoyable adventure for the reader . Notice I am leaving out names as it would spoil the magnificance intique of this book.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    The intricate details and the two big surprises ant the conclusion, which cannot even be hinted at!


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Yes surprise at the end (The Party/Assination?) which made me feel for Robie over lost relationships?
    Also the parting of the Girl and Robie, because it is one part that seems incomplete to me


    Do you have any additional comments?

    Please more Will Robie
