On the shores of a tranquil fjord in Northern Iceland, a man is brutally beaten to death on a bright summer's night. As the 24-hour light of the arctic summer is transformed into darkness by an ash cloud from a recent volcanic eruption, a young reporter leaves Reykjavik to investigate on her own, unaware that an innocent person's life hangs in the balance.
Ari Thor Arason and his colleagues on the tiny police force in Siglufjordur struggle with an increasingly perplexing case while their own serious personal problems push them to the limit. What secrets does the dead man harbour, and what is the young reporter hiding? As silent, unspoken horrors from the past threaten them all, and the darkness deepens, it's a race against time to find the killer before someone else dies....
Dark, terrifying and complex, Blackout is an exceptional atmospheric thriller from one of Iceland's finest crime writers.

This is the third in the series & I was sorry that it was ending!
The story is again set in Northern Iceland. This time it begins by the side of a fjord.
It is a long summer's night & a man is brutally beaten to death.
As a result of an ash cloud thrown up by a recent volcanic eruption, where light had been, darkness now reigned.
A young reporter travels from Reykjavik whilst an innocent person's life hangs in the balance.
I felt that this was the most complex of the 3 books!
Book 4 please!😂😂
Maybe not as good as Snowblind. It may have been the narrator though, who was OK on this one. The narrator of Snowblind had an Icelandic/Danish accent which somehow made it more authentic.
The story ended quite abruptly and it felt as if there were a few loose ends.
