The Island by Ragnar Jonasson

The Island (Hidden Iceland #2)The Island by Ragnar Jónasson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book is perfect example of Nordic Noir. Set in Iceland Hulda is a police detective who picks up an unusual case of a suspicious death on a uninhabited island. It has to be one four friends as no one else was on the island or was there. The writing is very smooth and easy to follow building the tension as it goes without giving any major clues. Yes it is just a glorified "who done it" but it combines it with the problems of life in Iceland, long days or nights and the struggle with mental health. Unfortunately I expected more thrills hence only three stars but it was entertaining nonetheless.
