Scandinavian crime writer and international literary phenomenon Arnaldur Indridason pens compulsively readable mysteries that have shot to the tops of best-seller lists around the world. When the U.S. Army attempts to secretly remove a plane from an Icelandic glacier, World War II intrigue erupts in the present - and threatens to engulf everyone in its path.

“Indridason fills the void that remains after you’ve read Stieg Larsson’s novels.” (USA Today)
I really enjoyed reading this. I should have read this, however, in the winter. Some books are very sensory rich, and can be enjoyed even more by immersing yourself into the story elements. This would be a great read while traveling in Iceland, flying on a trip to a new, unfamiliar country, or during a snowstorm, stuck at home. The quick pace kept me interested throughout the tale. I want to hike on Vatnajokull. I want to learn Icelandic. I want to write.
I enjoy Indridason's top-notch detective series. Perhaps that fact added to my sense of disappointment with Operation Napoleon. It is about as stale a thriller as can be. The characters are, without exception, one-dimensional and formulaic. The plot is the same old end-of-WWII conspiracy material that's been rehashed hundreds of time.
George Guidall ABSOLUTELY. Indridason possibly not. I would have to know it was more believable and less about the EVIL American government
The unbelievable story
ABSOLUTELY HE IS THE BEST
The entire plot. STAR OVER
