    Story
    "Read the others first..."

    ...and avoid the Amazon spoilers for this as it is, in all likelihood, the last. Ironic that it is the first of his books to be available on Audible. Beautifully read, simply written, gloomy and gruesome and tender. Of all the Nordic noir writers, Indridason is the most soulful. Not all the books in the series are as effective - they dip when Erlandur is not the main protagonist - nor are they always similar in mood or intent, but this, the seeming last of them, is one of the best.

    "Brilliantly read by Saul Reichlin"
    What did you like most about Strange Shores?

    I have read others by Indridason. This is not really a crime novel, more a poetic exploration of loss and death. That makes it sound grim, and it is in places. It is also slightly supernatural, almost a ghost story.


    What about Saul Reichlin’s performance did you like?

    This was the first I heard as an audio book. It was a revelation! Saul Reichlin is an excellent reader. It was a pleasure to hear the Icelandic names pronounced neatly, and his measured delivery fitted the story perfectly. Also I enjoyed the writing a lot more than I did when reading it. I am a fast reader, and have a tendency to skip the slower-moving parts. Listening to the book being read to me, skip-reading was not possible, so I found I entered much more deeply into the world of the story.
