Easy to read, interesting plot. Some of the chapters could have been a bit shorter but other than that an enjoyable book.

'Daybreak' is the third stand-alone novel by the Icelandic author,
and reveals his considerable versatility.
Goose hunters are being shot in different parts of rural Iceland.
Detectives Gunnar and Birkir are part of a team from Reykjavik
police department who are investigating.Initial enquiries lead
nowhere until the police receive a letter purportedly from the
killer,who then proceeds to set the police questions which they
must answer within a set time,otherwise he will kill again.
This novel has all the ingredients that make for fine crime fiction.
An innovative plot that keeps one guessing,interesting fully drawn
characters,and a vivid sense of place. Very enjoyable.

The original writing or translation really let this book down. Clunky and journalistic it seemed to get in th way of the story. The translators are described as English and Icelandic but it's definitely translated into American. Fine if I had been expecting that. A disappointing read.

Good, unusual, fast paced story. The characters of the two main police officers are interesting and individual. The Icelandic setting is well described. I have already enjoyed the house of evidence by the same author and will look for more. Would appeal to those liking character led crime with a different setting and culture to explore as well as an exciting plot. Julesdw

Some good descriptive writing and an engaging pair of detectives, however I'm not so sure about the plot. Some of the clues are really obvious and towards the end one of the detectives is so slow at working things out you feel like shouting at him to ask an obvious question. So an enjoyable holiday-type read but not a book I'm likely to reread in a hurry.

There was an opportunity to make what was basically a good plot into an excellent thriller AND THIS WAS LOST as the author threw in too much unnecessary and irrelevant information. It was as though he was struggling to achieve the amount of words required of him by the publisher and decided to bulk up his story with what turned out to be an annoying and needless distraction.

SO DISAPPOINTED
