It was Nile perch – the scales larger than the salmon she often used, the textures rougher. It had a wonderful light blue, translucent colour. Ingileif didn’t work in the gallery on Tuesday afternoons, her partner Sunna, the painter, was minding the store. She had plenty to worry about, but it felt good to lose herself in the design process for an hour or two. She had spent a year in Florence after she had graduated from university learning how to work with leather.

Veteran Boston cop Magnus Jonson has made himself a target of some high level drug dealers and is a key witness inn an upcoming trial. To make matters worse, there is a leak in the police department that makes it imperative for Magnus to disappear until he can testify. Where better to hide than his native Iceland that he left at age 12? By coincidence, it becomes an even better option when the head of the Icelandic police requests an experienced detective to come over to help train his force in how to combat big city crime. Once there, Magnus is thrown into a rare-for-Iceland murder case that leads deep into the history of the Icelandic hero sagas, ties into a cold case, and a modern literary classic.

This is the first book in the Fire and Ice series.

Until the banking crisis that hit international news, the country of Iceland, its people, and its history weren't very well known to most North Americans. This book offers insight into Icelandic society while offering a first rate, complex mystery to solve along with the main character.

The heroic sagas of Iceland also play a big part in the book as does the Tolkien "Lord of the Rings" saga. I'll admit to never having read the Tolkien books, so those portions of the narrative meant little to me, but there was enough background given to make sense of it in the context of the fictional Icelandic saga described as part of the mystery. Readers who are Rings fans probably will appreciate and understand this aspect of the book more than non-fans, but it does not detract from the enjoyment of the mystery.

Magnus Jonson, who reverts to his traditional Icelandic name Magnus Ragnarson upon his return to Iceland, is a competent cop and sympathetic character who finds himself somewhat of a stranger in his birth land as he tries to fit into the professional hierarchy of the police department and everyday life in Reykjavik. The reader is pulled into his memories of his childhood, his mother's death, and his mixed feelings about being back. Lots of backstory and angst is there for investigation and analysis in future installments in the series and makes for a very compelling character.

Recommended.

This is the beginning of a series about Magnus Jonson, a Boston homicide detective who was born in Iceland, but then brought to the US by his dad when he was a pre-teen. Because he's the witness in a pending trial against a powerful drug cartel, Magnus needs to get out of town for a while, and his boss makes a deal with the Reykjavik police -- Magnus can spend some time helping the detective division improve its murder investigations, and he can stay there until he needs to testify. He's barely in the country when an intriguing murder takes place: a professor on the verge of a big discovery is killed and the police have no leads, no witnesses, no motive.

Magnus is an interesting character, and the story is enriched as his personal background is revealed throughout the novel. Even minor characters are well drawn and interesting, the dialogue is realistic and no one is an idiot (well, Jonson makes one or two bone-headed moves). The mystery holds your interest and has a plausible solution. And BONUS -- there is a major tie-in to Tolkien and The Lord of the Rings! I enjoyed this very much and was happy to see that there are more stories, including a Kindle novella, with Jonson in the lead.

Another great Scandinavian mystery!

This grabbed me fairly quickly and refused to let go. It's a fascinating mix of influences: set mostly in Iceland, with links to Boston among other places, much of the plot revolves around old Icelandic Sagas with a strong link to J.R.R. Tolkien and The Lord of the Rings. It's fast paced and has plenty of twists and turns on the way to a thrilling climax. Magnus Jonson (or Ragnusson) is an intriguing and complex protagonist and the writing is excellent. I'll look for more from Michael Ridpath.

I'm not a Lord of The Ring fan but this story can make a believer of a skeptic! I understand th a Tolkien used one of the Icelandic Sagas as the basis for his books. The search for "the ring" is the main theme in this book and Tolkien's book. Even if true, the destruction of the Ring and it's evil influences is the right thing to do, but, will the final holder of it be strong enough to do the right thing? Editing errors in the English lost the possible 5th star.

A nice mystery for a weekends reading pleasure. Not too much gritty violence but enough to give the action a realistic feel. One thinks the hero is the detective, but maybe the people of this book and of the country depicted in it are the real heroes. I thought it to be very well written with good logic and plot development. It also gave a very nice flavor of a wonderful people and country and their traditions, pride and culture. Highly Recommended!!

Where the Shadows Lie by Michael Ridpath

Mention a book about Iceland and I immediately think of the Inspector Erlendur Series by Arnaldur Indrioason. Imagine my surprise to find it closer to the South Island of New Zealand (which my daughter and I visited – but didn’t have half the excitement the crew did in Iceland). I thoroughly enjoyed the story and do recommend it – especially for TLOTR aficionados.

I gave this four stars for the interesting subject matter and the massive effort the author put into the book. The plot is interesting enough, not the best writing ever but not bad. I would recommend for the learning experience if nothing else. It's a part of the history and culture of Iceland I knew nothing about. And it talks about the little people, who doesn't love them???
Book almost got five stars. A completely absorbing tale within a murder mystery made this a winner for me. Also, being set in Iceland, was fascinating. The descriptions of the country and it's people made me want to know more. Of course the teasing tie-in to The Lord of the Rings was the icing on the cake (no pun intended). I will definitely be reading more by this author.
