Where To Find It
Call number: Fiction
Originally published as: Sér grefur gröf. Reykjavík : Veröld Pub., 2006.
"This book was originally published in Iceland in Icelandic in 2006 by Verold Publishing."
I recommend this book if you're looking for more new Icelandic fiction and if you like Arnaldur Indridason's books. (Jar City, Voices, etc.) It's reminiscent of Swedish author Asa Larsson's books in that the main "detective" is a female lawyer. All very interesting!
As with most Nordic Fiction novels, the author paints a portrait of Iceland so that it acts as another character book. (Here it's specifically the gorgeous and spooky Snaefellsnes Peninsula!)
It's a beautiful translation by the late Bernard Scudder.
