Jonasson has set a mystery on that lovely little island with the one house in a bowl of grass surrounded by cliffs that turns up on your Facebook feed periodically The island is Ellidaey on the south end of Iceland. Once inhabited by families who survived raising cattle and hunting puffins it is now uninhabited and the remaining building is a hunting lodge owned by a hunting association. Four friends, one of whom has connections with the association and can get permission to use the lodge, decide to hold a reunion there on the 10th anniversary of the murder of a former member of their high school group. On the second morning one of the women is dead at the bottom of the cliff and Detective Inspector Hulda Hermannsdottir is given the case. Hulda gradually discovers the links to the earlier case, despite interference from the boss who has held her back since the beginning of her career. This is the second in a series. A convoluted mystery with an unexpected solution.

A mediocre seqqel to Darkness. Hulda Hermannsdottir makes a trip to America to find the father she never knew.

Klara, a 30-something is found dead at the bottom of a cliff. First thought suicide or accident, finger marks were found on her neck, denoting murder. It is the 10th anniversary of the death of her best friend, Katla, and the 'group' (Benni, Dagur, Alexandra and Klara) went away for a weekend to 'celebrate' or reminisce at the anniversary of the murder. It is there that Klara's body is found.

The original murder was thought to have been solved--Katla's father was charged. But now, could it be that the wrong man was charged, when 10 years later, another one of the group is found dead?

As I said, mediocre at best. While I really liked Darkness and was intent on reading the trilogy, now I'm not so sure I'll read book three. ( )

„Ihre eigene Arbeit hatte sich im Laufe der Jahre immer weiter spezialisiert, sodass sie mittlerweile fast ausschließlich mit Gewaltverbrechen beschäftigt war, eine Kategorie, unter die auch ungeklärte Todesfälle fielen, die in Island allerdings relativ selten waren. Hulda wusste, dass sie gut war in dem, was sie tat.“ (Zitat Seite 185)

Inhalt
Vor zehn Jahren war ihr bei der Beförderung ein Kollege vorgezogen worden, der nun ihr direkter Vorgesetzter ist und Hulda Hermannsdóttir, Kommissarin bei der Polizei Reykjavík, hat inzwischen das Gefühl, mit Ende vierzig schon an der Spitze ihrer Karrieremöglichkeiten angelangt zu sein. Ebenfalls vor zehn Jahren ist ihre Tochter Dimma gestorben und zwei Jahr später ihr Ehemann Jón. Seither gibt es für Hulda nur mehr ihre Arbeit und sie spezialisiert sich auf ungeklärte Verbrechen. Als ihr ein eigenartiger Todesfall auf einer entlegenen kleinen Insel gemeldet wird, übernimmt sie den Fall selbst. Plötzlich stößt sie bei den Ermittlungen auf einen direkten Zusammenhang mit einem Mordfall in der Vergangenheit, der damals rasch aufgeklärt worden war – oder doch nicht?

Thema und Genre
In diesem packenden isländischen Thriller geht es um Familie, Verluste, vor allem aber um nachhaltend prägende Ereignisse, die das weitere Leben beeinflussen.

Charaktere
Nach dem Tod ihrer jungen Tochter und dem späteren Verlust ihres Ehemannes rettet Hulda Hermannsdóttir sich in ihre Arbeit. Da keine Familie mehr auf sie wartet, gibt es für sie auch keine Bürozeiten in ihren Ermittlungen, nichts lenkt sie ab. Ihre Erfahrung lässt sie prinzipiell auch angebliche Fakten und Beweise hinterfragen und hartnäckig sucht sie nach der Wahrheit.

Handlung und Schreibstil
Der Aufbau umfasst einen Prolog, einen Teil I, der im Jahr 1987 spielt und den Hauptteil, Teil II, der zehn Jahre später, 1997, stattfindet. Ein kurzer Epilog ergänzt fehlende Details. In Teil I untersucht Kommissar Lýður, später Huldas Vorgesetzter, einen Mordfall. In Teil II ermittelt Hulda. In einigen Kapiteln steht, abwechselnd mit Hulda, auch jeweils eine Person des Freundeskreises, um den es bei den Ereignissen auf der Insel geht, im Mittelpunkt: Dagur, Klara, Benedikt, Alexandra. So erhält man beim Lesen unterschiedliche, zusätzliche Informationen, die Hulda nicht wissen kann und dies sorgt gekonnt für ein sehr packendes Lesevergnügen, realistisch und nachvollziehbar. Dieser zweite Band der Hidden Iceland Trilogie beginnt die Lücke zu schließen, zwischen dem ersten Band, der im Zeitablauf der letzte ist, und dem noch nicht erschienenen dritten Band, der am weitesten in die Vergangenheit zurückreicht.

Fazit
Zwei Ereignisse in einsamen, abgeschiedenen Gegenden Islands, mitten in der ungezähmten Landschaft, dazu eine erfahrene, menschlich sehr sympathische Ermittlerin. Zusammen ergibt das einen sehr spannenden Nordic Noir Thriller, einen Pageturner, der nächtliche Lesestunden garantiert. ( )

The first book in the Hidden Iceland series involves a case at the end of Hulda's law enforcement career. This one goes back to a case when she is fifty. Hulda investigates the death of a young woman on a remote island. At first, it appears to be an accidental death, but when the coroner finds signs of a struggle, Hulda finds herself investigating not only this incident but one from ten years earlier than solidified another officer's promotion within ranks of law enforcement. That man is now her boss, and he does not want his hasty case wrap-up called into question. It's a satisfying read with a satisfying outcome. The reader may be left with a couple questions, but they are not really central to the case. For example, what happened to the inspector who lied ten years earlier? I look forward to the next book in the series. ( )

"The Island" was a deeply satisfying read. The writing is sparse but confident, delivering movement between multiple points of view and backwards and forwards across multiple timelines so seamlessly that there is never any confusion, only a growing sense of tension as the plot is revealed.


The way in which the plot is revealed is innovative without being gimmicky. Ragnor Jonasson offers the reader different views of a complex pattern that we know will come together like a beautiful piece of lace and invites us to guess the design as he turns a piece of it in front of us. He presents a person and a set of events, bringing them into vivid focus, and then moves on, repeating the process but with people and situations that don't immediately seem to be linked to the last point of focus. A lot of the fun comes from holding these points in your mind and trying to connect them before Jonasson does it for you.


"The Island" is more than a clever plot. It is the story of people whose lives are ruined by an act of violence. I liked the fact that it was not the act but its consequences that Jonasson focused on. He shows us people in pain because of guilt, shame, and grief. He makes that pain real, not to celebrate the pain but to build empathy with the people suffering. This is less a whodunnit and more a look-what-happens-when-this-is-done.


It is a sad book, filled with small acts of deception or greed or aggression that damage the happiness both of the person committing them and the person they are committed against. It's a bok where the quiet struggle with despair is always present.


"The Island" is the second book in the "Hiden Iceland" series, which started with "The Darkness". The main character in both books is Reykjavík police detective Hulda Hermannsdóttir. In "The Darkness" Hulda was sixty-four and approaching retirement. At the start of the events in "The Island", she is forty. I was curious to see how this technique of revealing Hulda's life backwards would work, Jonasson makes it into more than a marketing trick. He uses is to deepen the sadness of the book. Knowing how Hulda's career ends and how she felt about her life when she was sixty-four adds poignancy to how she spends the decade this story extends over.


I'm now looking forward to the next book, "The Mist" which will be released in English next year.


I listened to the audiobook version of "The Island" which was narrated by Amanda Redman. I recommend it to you ( )
