Daybreak

Several goose hunters are found shot dead in rural Iceland, and detectives Gunnar Maríuson and Birkir Hinriksson are assigned to the case. Lead after lead goes cold before a mysterious letter arrives at the Reykjavik police department that reads, “My nature is to kill. I hunt men and never let go.” Gunnar and Birkir set a trap for the one they call “the Gander.” But the killer sends them on a deadly wild-goose chase, as lives hang in the balance.

Lead after lead goes cold before a mysterious letter arrives at the Reykjavik police department that reads, “My nature is to kill. I hunt men and never let go.” Gunnar and Birkir set a trap for the one they call “the Gander.” But the killer sends them on a deadly wild-goose chase, as lives hang in the balance. With the clock running out and the discovery of another body all but guaranteed, the cops must determine what thread connects the victims and if the killings are all part of a twisted game.

What the Critics Say

“Tightly crafted, Daybreak takes the reader into the minds of two unique detectives as they try to unravel the motives and culprits behind the murders of goose hunters. Juxtaposed with American styles, the subtle differences in Icelandic hunting and detective work make for a provoking story.” (Bobby Cole, author of The Dummy Line and Moon Underfoot)

    "Murdered goose hunters? Really??"

    When I first read the synopsis of this book, I thought to myself that life must be really dull in Iceland, if murdering goose hunters is their idea of entertainment. But, since I still haven't gotten over the death of Stieg Larsson, I thought I'd give this book a try, and I'm very glad I did. It had enough twists and turns to keep me guessing to the very end. The story was fast-paced, well-written and full of believable intriguing characters, each with their background story. I liked the characters enough that I wish the author had written a second book with the same ones, particularly the same police officers, but unfortunately each of his books is a standalone. Narration was very good, not overdone, so that I could immerse myself in the story. Overall highly recommended

    "Another fine Nordic noir tale."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, sure.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not really, I'm not generally a marathon reader. But it's a good tale.

    "Scary Icelandic thriller"
    What did you love best about Daybreak?

    The progress of the clues. In the middle of the book, the pace really picks up.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Daybreak?

    When the police figure out one of the suspect's stories was false. That really unnerved me.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the police engaged with the suspect in a series of clues on the computer. I love puzzles.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A flight of fancy ends in death


    Any additional comments?

    I would like to see more from this author.
