My rating: 1 of 5 stars
Snowblind is set in a remote northern Icelandic town, in the depth of winter. Ari Thor is a newly arrived, newly qualified cop and it looks like he’ll have nothing to do other than to catch the residents speeding and then not giving them a ticket. The most exciting thing to happen in the town is the amateur dramatic production but then someone dies during rehearsals.
Snowblind could have been okay but I found the writing style to be very clunky and after spending a good chunk of the book just following Ari Thor, the author starts writing from the viewpoints of a whole load of other characters, it was a bit confusing. And there were slightly weird segments about a woman in a house burglary.
I ‘read’ this as an audiobook and that didn’t help, as the narration wasn’t brilliant, with annoying too long pauses at the end of each sentence (I may have just totally insulted the whole of Iceland there, if that’s the way they speak).
