"Siglufjörður: an idyllically quiet fishing village in Northern Iceland, where no one locks their doors -- accessible only via a small mountain tunnel. Ari Thór Arason: a rookie policeman on his first posting, far from his girlfriend in Reykjavik--with a past that he's unable to leave behind. When a young woman is found lying half-naked in the snow, bleeding and unconscious, and a highly esteemed, elderly writer falls to his death in the local theater, Ari is dragged straight into the heart of a community where he can trust no one, and secrets and lies are a way of life. Past plays tag with the present and the claustrophobic tension mounts, while Ari is thrust ever deeper into his own darkness -- blinded by snow, and with a killer on the loose. Taut and terrifying, Snowblind is a startling debut from an extraordinary new talent. "--… (mere)

I had mixed feelings about Snowblind by Ragnar Jonasson. This is the first in his Dark Iceland series and there were parts that I thought were excellent and others that fell short for me. This is the story of a rookie policeman who accepts a job in the extreme northern town of Siglufjordur in Iceland, leaving behind his medical school girlfriend, Kristen. He arrives in town in November, just as winter is closing in.

Winter actually does completely engulf this town. The only road into town goes through a mountain tunnel and when heavy snowfalls cause avalanches, the town is cut off. When an elderly author is found dead at the bottom of a flight of stairs in the local theatre, it is at first dismissed as an accident. Then a young woman is found brutally attacked and unconscious in her back garden. There is a connection between the author and this young woman causing the police to give both cases a deeper scrutiny.

The positive points of the book were the mystery that was well done and kept me interested as a variety of motives and suspects were brought to light. Where the author excelled was in creating the claustrophobic atmosphere of a small town facing the darkness of winter, the heavy snowfalls, and the isolation of living within the Arctic Circle. What I didn’t particularly like was the main character, Ari Thor, who I found a little too headstrong, selfish and immature. Luckily the writing and setting kept the pages turning and I can always hope that Ari Thor does some maturing before the next book. ( )

First of Jonasson's books to be published in English. Ari Thor can't find his calling until he joins the police academy, and finds a position in a remote village on Iceland's northern coast, estranging him from his girlfriend. A celebrity dies and Ari suspects foul play. The beauty of this book is the author's portrayal of this small town's desolation, and the depth of the characters. Looking forward to the next one. ( )

Great novel to read when the heat index is above 100°. Enjoyable, sympathetic characters and a decent plot. Scene setting is excellent. ( )

In een stadje in het noorden van IJsland gebeurt nooit iets, zegt de politieman die Ari als beginnend agent in dienst neemt. Dan valt een gevierd schrijver van de trap, pleegt een inwoonster zelfmoord en blijkt er juist heel veel te gebeuren. Het schrijverschap van de schrijver berust op bedrog, een van de spelers in de plaatselijke toneelclub blijkt een misdadiger die voor moord niet terugdeinst, kortom, het is verre van rustig. En dan het feit dat het stadje nauwelijks bereikbaar is in de winter, zeker niet als er lawines vallen op de weg naar de tunnel waardoor je in het stadje kunt komen. Benieuwd naar de andere boeken van Ragnar.
