There's definitely a creep factor to this. Sigurradottir is an accomplished mystery writer but she also can create a haunting tale.

The cat's meow? Not quite, but along those Hallowe'enish lines with the second of Ms. Sigurðardóttir's mysteries from iceland.

Icelandic authors seem to share the dark sensibilities of the more popular Scandinavian mystery authors. Gloom and misery and tortured family relationships abound; as do undeveloped characters and straying plotlines.

Poorly plotted, needs copy editor!

When one of her clients asks her to investigate ghosts at his resort hotel lawyer Thora Gudmunsdottir is skeptical but sends her young daughter and soon-to-be a father 16-year-old son to their father and heads out to rural Iceland. Soon a couple of bodies have turned up and also a mystery from the past. Lots of stuff to investigate, people to question, all the while Thora must take time to get enough to eat, deal with crises at home (with only spotty cell phone reception), deal with language barriers and occasionally snuggle with her German boyfriend from Last Rituals. Not a brain busting mystery but fun and a bit different from the usual.
