Arnaldur Indridason (Icelandic Crime Mystery Author) REYHJAVIH NIGHTS/A Book Review

If you like murder mysteries, you will really enjoy a series by the Icelandic author, Arnaldur Indridason!!!! It all started with JAR CITY!!!!!!

His latest book, REYHJAVIH NIGHTS is a prequel to the series that started with JAR CITY and ended with STRANGE SHORES.  It gives the background for the main character in the books. After 10 books, out comes the prequel…….WHY? Usually I just say, “Follow the money”……….BUT it couldn’t be that! Indridason’s books have been so successful I find it hard to believe that he wrote the prequel just to make more money! Can you read all of the 10 books and enjoy them without having read the prequel? YES!!!!! So why should you get a copy and read it!???? If you are like me………………I like to have the “whole story”…….and the background behind the main character explaining why he is the way he is just completes the story.

SUGGESTION!!!!  Pick a friend that loves good crime mysteries! Get the prequel and the first book, JAR CITY and then promise to give him/her the next book in the series when they finish those two and so on until the series is finished. (it may be now…..but who knows?) I certainly would enjoy another book or two about these characters!
