    PDF/EPUB Viktor Arnar Ingólfsson ë Flateyjargáta PDF Ö ë flateyjargáta epub, Flateyjargáta PDF/EPUBBook reviewIceland with a population of 321857 is considered the most sparsely populated country in Europe and given that at most 1 or 2 murders annually are reported in the entire country it is not the first place readers might venture to discover new crime fiction authors And for most of the twentieth century publishers agreedFlatey Island The Flatey Enigma is one of the first books noticed by publishers as originating from Iceland at least those in translation some two years before Arnaldur's successful Jar City made it's way into crime fiction headlines It is a peculiar story reminiscent of Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code but stripped of all sensationalism and the glamour Brown favors Imagine Brown's story where we chase down clues in old manuscripts while within the confines of an island and its simple inhabitants being thrown under an ice cold shower and presented with prose authored in typical Scandinavian blea

    PDF/EPUB Viktor Arnar Ingólfsson ë Flateyjargáta PDF Ö ë flateyjargáta epub, Flateyjargáta PDF/EPUBThis is a mystery with different meanings with a couple of mysteries threading through out the whole story and the dead bodies are almost incidental to the true story which is a snapshot of small Icelandic island life during the 1960's If you're a fan of modern formula driven mysteries or hard and fast action this book will bore you to tears I enjoyed the book because I am an armchair anthropologist and I loved the hints of many different mysteries within the mystery of the occult and of the ancient mythology This is a story of a book of ancient sagas called The Flatey Book that happened to be written on the small island of Flatey which is in the 1960's of fading glory and population and which was noted in the book maybe misnamed as it just happened to be written on the island and should have been named after the fantastic poets and illustrators who made the book It is also a story of despair professional greed and national pride

    PDF/EPUB Viktor Arnar Ingólfsson ë Flateyjargáta PDF Ö ë flateyjargáta epub, Flateyjargáta PDF/EPUBThere really is a series of Icelandic sagas called The Flatey Book Viktor Arnar Ingolfsson has crafted an interesting mystery story about a couple of strange deaths around the Island of Flatey in Iceland's Westfjord country For once there is no super smooth investigator only several officials trying to put two and two togetherThe motivating factor is a series of enigmas penned by a saga scholar in the 19th century It seems that the victims were all connected in some way with these enigmas and

    PDF/EPUB Viktor Arnar Ingólfsson ë Flateyjargáta PDF Ö ë flateyjargáta epub, Flateyjargáta PDF/EPUBThis gently paced novel has several threads interwoven like a skein of different coloured woolThe first thread is an investigation into one death then a second But are either of these deaths murder? The second thread is an evocative insight into life as it was in this remote part of Iceland in 1960 Another is excerpts from the sagas read by an as yet unidentified person Kjartan the regional magistrate's assistant is sent to the island of Flatey when a badly decomposed body is found on a remote islet Who was he and how did he get there? We gradually meet the locals some helpful some eccentric and it is this insight into the daily life of these isolated people that for me was one of the highlights of this book No one seems to have just one job the teacher works as a sealer in the summer time farmers fish part time just to make ends meet This seems to be an Icelandic tradition to this day even Viktor the author of this book has a day

    PDF/EPUB Viktor Arnar Ingólfsson ë Flateyjargáta PDF Ö ë flateyjargáta epub, Flateyjargáta PDF/EPUBThis book is actually a decent story and makes for a somewhat typical mystery The Icelandic setting and reliance on a historical Icelandic Norse manuscript as a center focus adds a somewhat uniue twist but in many ways it doesn't move any further than being a Icelandic version of a Dan Brown novel a la The Davinci CodeThe story is entertaining and uick however so it isn't what I would call bad The 3 star review reflects the entertainment value The reason it is no higher is of a reflection of a less than idea translation or a bit of a simplistic writing style I suppose when you are going for the action mystery type genre the writing style has to be simplistic but I can't help but think that the real book isn't a bit better W

    PDF/EPUB Viktor Arnar Ingólfsson ë Flateyjargáta PDF Ö ë flateyjargáta epub, Flateyjargáta PDF/EPUBThis is an old fashioned cozy In fact since it takes place in 1960 I thought it might be a reprint from a book published that yearI like meandering stories with out of the norm characters And since it's set in Flatey part of Iceland I enjoyed learning about the culture and relations between Icelanders and other like countriesA Danish professor studying the Flatey Enigma an unsolved modern enigma about the Flatey Runes is found dead on a tiny island by seal hunters Later a reporter is found in a Flatey cemetery mutilated in the famous Viking Blood Eagle where lungs are ripped out to look like wings The man sent to collect the first body is a novice The second body makes him sick Finally he becomes one of the suspe

    PDF/EPUB Viktor Arnar Ingólfsson ë Flateyjargáta PDF Ö ë flateyjargáta epub, Flateyjargáta PDF/EPUBThis one was really interesting It´s a mystery thriller taking place on a small island in Icland in the 60s To be honest if I wouldn´t have read about it being in the 60s I wouldn´t have known because the people were like I would expect them to be living on a remote island A dead man is found and soon everybody thinks the dead one is connected with an old book the book of flatey which exists in the real world In the thriller the book is connected to a riddle in 40 parts concerning the saga told in the book of flatey The story is interrupted with pieces of the saga and the riddle which corresponds to this part of the saga Sounds complicated but that´s my fault I just don´t know how to describe it But one learns uite a lot about this iclandic saga The main character is a civil servan
