But how does all this connect to a local gangster recently returned to Iceland after many years abroad, and the unfortunate loss of a government laptop containing sensitive data about various members of the ruling party? What begins as a straightforward case for Gunnhildur soon explodes into a dangerous investigation, uncovering secrets that ruthless men are ready to go to violent extremes to keep.
Although born in the UK, in 1962, through a series of coincidences Quentin Bates found himself working in Iceland in his gap year. The gap year then became 10 years, during which time he managed to get himself married, produce a family, and generally go native in Iceland. The family then moved back to the UK in 1990 where Quentin became a full-time journalist on a commercial fishing magazine.
Quentin and his (Icelandic) wife frequently return to Iceland, where they have many friends, including several in the Reykjavik police.

I was really amazed with this book - the story was good but Mel Hudson's reading was wonderful, so just looked for another Quentin Bates book in the hope that Mel Hudson would read.'

Another good one
This is certainly well told, a good story with the believable and pleasant characters. It is so refreshing to have a lead character who behaves in a logical manner, doesn't have any hang ups, and isn't rude to her bosses nor to her subordinates.
A series that I am really enjoying.
