Snjóblinda characters Í 108 Il ne se passe rien où personne ne ferme jamais sa porte à clef Mais voilà une jeune femme est retrouvée morte à moitié nue dans la neige ; un vieil écrivain renommé fait une chute mortelle dans le théâtre local Ari Thor se retrouve plongé au cœur d'une petite communauté où chacun tient l’autre par ses mensonges et ses secretsUne avalanche et des tempêtes de neiges incessantes ferment tempo. An incredible mix of Scandi noir and classic detective fictionThe young policeman Ari Thor is a wonderful creation intelligent earnest impulsive unsure self reflective troubled So human in his thinking and behaviour Jonasson s decision to make Ari Thor a newbie both as a detective and member of the town gives the character a fresh perspective uite unlike most of the main protagonists in contemporary crime fiction He is in charge of nothing and is freuently overruled in his opinions by the experienced Thomas not always to good effect His role as outsider is both an asset and a curse his lack of knowledge about the inhabitants of Siglufjordur allows him to see them clearly without the lens of past experience yet that same status accords him less authority further exacerbated by being newly ualified and youthful He makes mistakes His idealism is frustrated He must come to understand that they are not always happy ever afters Ari Thor is just one example of the exemplary characterisation employed by Jonasson Each and every one of the people the author reveals to the reader is fully realised their backstories utilised to provide a basis for the choices they are making in the present day They become than caricatures of the cheating partner or the man with a troubled past to people with messy lives real motivations and flaws each living their own private internal lives within the small town atmosphere of Siglufjordur They show the truth in the idea that you never really know the people around you that we all hold secrets Of course the depth given to each individual also makes it harder to guess whodunnitThe weather plays one of the most significant character roles in the novel The storm of snow and cold underlies every scene of the book either hovering in the background or repeatedly forming part of the character and reader experience Alongside the remote setting of the town it deepens the sense of isolation from the rest of society The town and the people in it are apart by accident or by design It is no wonder that the avalanche that blocks the only road back to elsewhere only increases the sense of claustrophobia in Ari Thor unsettling even the long termers when things in the town seem to be taking a sinsister turn The close knit community undergoes a transformation when it is trapped together and when someone within their ranks could well be a killer All in all I loved it and am very much looking forward to the next in the series Nightblind Thankfully I have very little time to wait Anything else on my TBR will be shoved aside for this it s a perfect winter read The howling wind outside the wintery storm within the pages and a nice cup of tea to finish it all off Heaven The Art of Clean Up: Life Made Neat and Tidy. où personne ne ferme jamais sa porte à clef Mais voilà une jeune femme est retrouvée morte à moitié nue dans la neige ; un vieil écrivain renommé fait une chute mortelle dans le théâtre local Ari Thor se retrouve plongé au cœur d'une petite communauté The Last Vessel The Chronicles of Luna Moon #1 où chacun tient l’autre par ses mensonges et ses secretsUne avalanche et des tempêtes de neiges incessantes ferment tempo.

Snjóblinda characters Í 108 Snjór La neige en islandaisCelle ui tombe sans discontinuer sur la ville la plus au nord de l’Islande Siglufjördur Un village de pêcheurs auuel on ne peut accéder ue par un tunnel étroit creusé à même la montagne Ari Thór ui vient de terminer l’école de police à Reykjavik y est envoyé pour sa première affectation Sa fiancée refuse de le suivre dans ce trou pauméSiglufjördur la ville où. She lay in the middle of the garden like a snow angelFrom a distance she appeared peacefulHer arms splayed from her sides She wore a faded pair of jeans and was naked from the waist up her long hair around her like a coronet in the snow snow that shouldn t be that shade of redA pool of blood had formed around herHer skin seemed to be paling alarmingly fast taking on the colour of marble as if in response to the striking crimson that surrounded herHer lips were blue Her shallow breath came fastShe seemed to be looking up into the dark heavensThen her eyes snapped shut One of the intriguing exchanges in a movie full of great lines is the interaction between Griffin Mills played by Tim Robbins and June Gudmundsdottir played by Greta Scacchi in one of my favorite movies The Player It s very green actually Really I thought that was Greenland No Greenland s very icy Iceland s very green They switched names to fool the Vikings who tried to steal their women I m always perking up my ears about anything regarding Iceland There is something so compelling about an island with so much snow and so much volcanic heat beneath The first Icelandic author I found was Arnaldur Indri ason and have enjoyed his books immensely Where Indri ason is gritty and hardboiled Ragnar Jonasson is definitely in the classic British mystery vein that Dame Agatha Christie dominated for most of her career Jonasson has translated 14 Christie books into Icelandic and he was certainly doing than just translating He was learning the craft Ari Thor uit his studies in theology and philosophy to take up the study of law enforcement An odd move that was baffling to most of his friends He has a girlfriend named Kristin who is studying to become a doctor She has just moved into his flat in Reykjavik when he gets an offer of a job in Siglufjordur which is clear on the opposite side of the island in the northern part of the country A town that freuently becomes snowed in for the winter He takes the job without talking to his pretty committed soon to be a doctor making lots of money girlfriend It seems hasty as if he really does want to escape to some remote area to get away from Siglufjordur IcelandSiglufjordur is like most small towns all over the world He will never be accepted as one of them The best he can hope for is that they learn to like him and tolerate him It snows so much that it becomes oppressive He can t stop thinking about the snow even when he is sleeping He needs reassurance from Kristin even but she has become distant and evasive as the pressure of her classes takes and of her time Ari is not happy but really there is no one to blame but himself And then the national treasure of Iceland Hrolfur Kristjansson the writer of the masterpiece North of the Hills falls down a flight of stairs and dies He was old He had been drinking He was agitated by an argument with one of his friends A tragic accident for sure Well maybe Then a young woman is brutally attacked and left in the snow to die Suddenly this small community has become very interesting Ari sifts through the convoluted truths and in the process learns about all the people surrounding the events than he really wants to know The victims prove the most intriguing of all What really happened to that woman and why And who really is Hrolfur As the layers are peeled back the new information creates uestions than answers Now Ari is no Hercule Poirot The little gray cells are not fully developed Nor is he a Miss Marple but he makes up for his lack of experience with determination and a tenacious desire to learn the truth no matter how many broken threads of inuiry he encounters along the way To make things complicated for him he is starting to have feelings for a girl there in Siglufjordur named Ugla My brain instantly translates that to Ugly but she is far from that Not only is she pretty but she is also hyper intelligent and most importantly of all she is there As a final nod to Christie Ari brings all the suspects together at the end of the novel for the grand reveal I enjoyed the small town in the North of Iceland It seems like the perfect place to get a lot of reading done The weather keeps people buttoned up and the freuent avalanches seal off the town from the rest of the world Nature imposed isolation is sometimes the only way for people to find any peace any I m rating the book 35 stars but I ll give Jonasson a bump to 4 instead of rounding down to 3 Call it half a star on account I m looking forward to reading his next foray because I really want to see this earnest young man grow into the detective I know he can be If you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also have a Facebook blogger page at
