Somehow exactly what I was looking for, which’ll get top marks from me every time. Def planning on reading more Nordic noir.

Some old college friends go to a shack in the north of Iceland for a hunting trip and turn on each other. Ragnar’s writing is so accessible, I’m kind of obsessed. Oh, to be in a shack in the woods during a blizzard!

3 stars only because a day or two later and I’m already starting to forget this one. It was a nice way to pass a weekend though.

Four friends are stranded in snowbound cabin while on a reunion/hunting trip. But an armed and silent stranger in the cabin throws all plans off. When are friends no longer friends?

Not every day one reads a mystery cowritten by a nation's Prime Minister. The tale involves a reporter urged to do a review of 30 year old disappearance of a young woman, still unsolved. He gets a clue through a mysterious phone call but dies when he is hit by a bus near the end of Reykjavik's 200 year aniversary celebration. His siter takes up the story and discovers the solution against the background of the Reagan/Gorbachev summit.
