Stieg Larsson fans who are casting about for something new to read would do well to pick up the latest in Indridason’s excellent Inspector Erlendur series. Creepy and atmospheric, Hypothermia will keep readers up late into the night.
When a woman is found hanging in her lakeside cottage, there’s no evidence of anything other than grief-driven suicide. Still, Inspector Erlendur follows his instincts into an unofficial investigation that uncovers information about the death of the father of the dead woman decades before, medical students who kill and revive each other to learn if there’s life after death — and unearths some secrets from his own past.
