Summary Svörtuloft Arnaldur Indriðason ↠ 2 Read Summary ï Svörtuloft Ë PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free A suspected blackmailer is found murdered in this gripping crime story from the Crime Writers' Association Gold Dagger winner Arnaldur Indridason Detective Sigurdur Oli is in trouble After a school reunion exposes the chasm between his life and those of his much successful co. I appreciate the subtle art in the construction of this police procedural set in Iceland The plot concerns the bludgeoning murder of a woman accountant known to be involved with her husband in wife swapping The protagonist in this 10th novel in a series is Sigurdur li a colleague of the usual lead detective Erlendur whom I encountered in Jar City He is ordinary in many ways not brilliant notably courageous or driven by ideals but he doggedly works to get the job done He discovers the victim while acting on behalf of a friends reuest to discourage a blackmail attempt involving a family member who participated in the wife swapping That would be an obvious motive for murder but the woman s association with a group of bankers involved in financial shenanigans deserves exploration as well The case leads li down pathways that bring him into the lives of both the poor downtrodden and the financial high fliers of this liberal society As a conservative working class member of this culture he is disgusted by the apparently laziness and excuses of the criminals of the lower classes and by the corruption and greed among the upper classes Here is a bit on his mindset on the former type If there was one thing that deeply pissed him off about his job it was having to be matey with little jerks like Kristjan having to suck up to people he despised and stoop to their level even pretend to be one of them try to put himself in their shoes His colleague Erlendur found it easy because he understood these losers but Elinborg could call on some sort of feminine intuition when forced to consort with criminal lowlifes But the way Sigurdur li saw it there was an unbridgeable gulf between him and a delinuent like Kristjan From Sigurdur Oli s point of view the little shit had forfeited the right to stand up and be counted to be listened to or treated as a member of societyThe evolution of Oli s sensibilities and insights regarding the lives of these sorts of transgressors represents the hidden core of this novel His own experience of his parent s divorce and inability to keep his relationship with his wife from falling apart begins to undermine the certainty of his judgment of other people Throughout the story a troubled mentally ill man he knows to have suffered terrible abuse from a stepfather as a child keeps trying to communicate with him hinting he has found his abuser The reader knows from the first pages he is seeking revenge li begins to have sympathy for the damage many people bear Will he be able to take effective action to intervene for this person or others in his cases whom the system has failed This book begins to open my eyes a bit about what the renaissance of Nordic or Scandanavian Noir is all about As Goodread s reviewer Harry Roolaart has been telling us so elouently the themes involve a special sort of realism distinct from the other traditional detective and crime novels of the West We do not get told what to feel and we don t usually get the thrill of an exaggerated cat and mouse game with a fiendish villain or the blatant drama of classic noir with a lonely jaded hero struggling with pervasive corruption or organized crime Instead what we get here is almost a sociological approach to portraying the fate of lowly figures from the failed welfare system or of well to do people lured to illegal financial schemes The lead female characters in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Smylla s Sense of Snow were effective in finding pathways to retributive action contributing to the broad success of these particular novels Mankell and his predecessor from decades earlier Sj wall and Wahl gained wide appeal from the uirky brilliance of their detectives Indri ason and apparently other writers in this new subgenre do not grab these tickets for widespread bestseller appeal I suspect many will feel depressed by this particular story and suffer from the low level of conventional action or personality pizzazz If you don t expect these conventional entertainments maybe like me you will be satisfied with the subtleties in this tale The book was provided by the publisher through the Goodreads Giveaway program

Arnaldur has a skill for developing characters even though the characters are unlikable Another thing I like about this writer is that the violence is off stage I am still kicking myself for reading Jo Nesbo as I don t need his images in my head Arnaldur s stories are gritty but without graphic depictions of violence He leaves it to the reader to fill in the blanksI was anxious to read a new Inspector Erlendur novel but he himself appeared nowhere As a result the entire novel felt different I missed him And Sigurdur Oli is a much shallower and less interesting character although we did get to know him on a deeper level I hope Erlender returns in the next one
