Pendant la 2e guerre mondiale, l’Islande est protégée par les britanniques et les américains. On cherche l’auteur d’un meurtre sans vraiment le trouver. Meurtre qui aurait été commis par le contre-espionnage. Wiston Churchill est censé se rendre en Islande ( )

In the United States, most of us know very little about Iceland, either about its history or its culture. It is a mystery few of us even care to solve. Yet Icelandic novelist Arnaldur Indridason, whose books are widely read in the U.S., helps solve this mystery with his mysteries.

His novels are set in Iceland, but at various points in the 20th century, thus giving readers a feel for what was going on in that island nation at the time. In “The Shadow Killer” (2018), it is the middle of World War II when the body of a man is found in another man's residence with a swastika carved in the forehead. A cyanide pill is found nearby, suggesting that either the dead man or Felix, the man in whose home the body is found, might have been a Nazi spy. But where is Felix? And is he the killer?

Indridason gives us not one but two investigators, each pursuing a different line of inquiry. One is Flovent, a relatively new man in Reykjavik's Criminal Investigation Department. The other man is Thorson, a man with Icelandic family ties, who works for the U.S. Military Police, the Americans now having a number of troops stationed in Iceland. The two men work independently, while meeting occasionally to compare notes.

While one man pursues the espionage angle — there are rumors that Winston Churchill might be coming to Iceland, suggesting the murder might somehow be connected — while the other investigates whether the murder might be a domestic crime, perhaps involving an attractive woman, Vera, with a habit of pitting one boyfriend against another.

I didn't find “The Shadow Killer” as compelling as most Indridason mysteries I've read. The pace seems a bit slow. Still it is a worthy read, as well as another fine lesson in Icelandic history and culture. ( )

Book# 2, in Reykjavik Wartime Mystery

Against the backdrop of occupied Iceland with the American GI replacing the British Tommies “The Shadow Killer” will have Flovent, of the Icelandic CID paired with Thorson, an Icelandic-Canadian, investigating the murder of a travelling salesman killed in the head by a bullet from a Colt 45 and what remained of his forehead has a swastika dabbed in blood. But this case becomes more complicated when the dead man was misidentified and another travelling salesman may have been the suspected target.

The plot has two line of inquiry and we have a lot of interrogations going on with the detectives hectoring witnesses and suspects, maybe a little too much. The center theme is the “Situation” where young Icelandic women were forgetting their morals with young soldiers- here it is explored through Vera. The second theme explored is the interest of the Nazis as a super race a theory tested by Felix’s father on young Icelanders. These characters are important players in this mystery. As the story unfolds Flovent and Thorson are pulled further down the rabbit hole and the more their finding point to someone with military experience, the more turbulent their investigations become. This mystery veers one way then jolts in the opposite direction over and over again but the problem is that it takes for over to get going. To various strands are woven together and much territory covered before the case is solved. Interesting by the end if you have the patience to hang on…… ( )

This is the second in a series taking place during WWII as U.S servicemen are replacing British troops in Iceland . A murdered man is discovered in someone else's apartment and the case is assigned to a local policeman, Flovent. He's aided by bilingual Canadian military cop, Stefan Thorson, assigned to the case by military authorities. They are very methodical in their investigation and must deal with the social disruption of the time as so many foreigners bring changes to Iceland. I particularly enjoyed all the interesting historical details. ( )

The second book in Arnaldur Indriðason’s Reykjavík Wartime Mystery series revolves around the murder of a travelling salesman that has the hallmarks of a military-style execution, from the position of the corpse to the murder weapon (a Colt 45, more common among American servicemen). Investigating the occupation forces is a tricky prospect, especially with an impending visit by Winston Churchill for the intelligence forces to worry about.

This was all right, although I found it rather repetitive. I liked that both detectives each had their own threads to follow, but they spent a lot of time rehashing their findings for each other—not at great length, but enough to feel repetitive—and telling suspects and witnesses the reasons why they were asking questions.

I also wonder if the English title “The Shadow Killer” made this sound more menacing and sinister than it ended up being, and that’s what left me feeling a bit “ehh” about the whole thing. Worth library borrowing, I guess. ( )
