        At the start of Indridason’s well-crafted second thriller set in Reykjavík during WWII (after 2017’s The Shadow District), Eyvindur, a hapless traveling salesman, comes home from a trip to find that his partner, Vera, has left with all her clothes—then disappears himself. Meanwhile, Flóvent, a local policeman, examines the body of Felix Lunden, another salesman, shot by a bullet from an American military pistol, his forehead daubed with a bloody swastika. Lunden’s ethnicity may be important: he was the son of a Danish-German doctor living in Iceland, an important country to the Germans as a “home to some kind of pure Nordic, Germanic race.” That Lunden’s briefcase contains a spy’s cyanide capsule adds intrigue. The investigation takes Flóvent and his English-speaking partner, Thorson, who works with American MPs, into the heart of a Reykjavík overrun by U.S. soldiers, the sordid German obsession with eugenics, and the two salesmen’s lives. The plot may be a bit too ambitious, but Indridason does a fine job evoking the place and time.

        It's 1941, and Reykjavik is teeming with foreign soldiers as American GIs arrive to take over Iceland's occupation from the British. Reykjavik detective Fl�vent and Canadian military liaison Stephan Thorson are paired again (after The Shadow District, 2017) to find the killer of a traveling salesman shot with an American gun and marked with a bloody swastika. They begin their investigation certain that their victim is Felix Lunden, tenant of the apartment where the body is found, but the case takes a turn when the deceased is identified as a rival salesman. Still, the case seems to revolve around the missing Felix, as Fl�vent and Thorson discover a German-issued cyanide capsule in Felix's sales suitcase and learn that his uncle is a Nazi scientist renowned for eugenics research. Indridason's voice, straightforward and tinged with sadness, works particularly well here, as he coaxes out tragic secrets and captures the occupation's impact with intriguing period detail, particularly the social impact of Reykjavik's emerging nightlife and the Icelandic Nationalist Party's Nazi legacy.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2018, American Library Association.)
