    Paperback ✓ Flateyjargáta ePUB ô flateyjargáta ebok, Flateyjargáta PDFEPUBBook reviewIceland with a population of 321857 is considered the most sparsely populated country in Europe and given that at most 1 or 2 murders annually are reported in the entire country it is not the first place readers might venture to discover new crime fiction authors And for most of the twentieth century publishers agreedFlatey Island The Flatey Enigma is one of the first books noticed by publishers as

    Paperback ✓ Flateyjargáta ePUB ô flateyjargáta ebok, Flateyjargáta PDFEPUBThis is a mystery with different meanings with a couple of mysteries threading through out the whole story and the dead bodies are almost incidental to the true story which is a snapshot of small Icelandic island life during the 1960's If you're a fan of modern formula driven mysteries or hard and fast action this book will bore you to tears I enjoyed the book because I am an armchair anthropologist and I loved the hints of many different mysteries within the mystery of the occult and of the ancient mythology This is a story of a book of ancient sagas called The Flatey Book that happened to be written on the small island of Flatey which is in the 1960's of fading glory and population and which was noted in the book maybe misnamed as it just happened to be written on the island and should have been named after the fantastic poets and illustrators who made the book It is also a story of despair professional greed and

    Paperback ✓ Flateyjargáta ePUB ô flateyjargáta ebok, Flateyjargáta PDFEPUBThere really is a series of Icelandic sagas called The Flatey Book Viktor Arnar Ingolfsson has crafted an interesting mystery story about a couple of strange deaths around the Island of Flatey in Iceland's Westfjord country For once there is no super smooth investigator only several officials trying to put two and two togetherThe motivating factor is a series of enigmas penned by a saga scholar in the 19th century It seems that the victims were all connected in some way with these enigmas and their solution I have not been able to discover whether the Flatey Book actually has any enigmas related to it In the end this is a quirk

    Paperback ✓ Flateyjargáta ePUB ô flateyjargáta ebok, Flateyjargáta PDFEPUBThis gently paced novel has several threads interwoven like a skein of different coloured woolThe first thread is an investigation into one death then a second But are either of these deaths murder? The second thread is an evocative insight into life as it was in this remote part of Iceland in 1960 Another is excerpts from the sagas read by an as yet unidentified person Kjartan the regional magistrate's assistant is sent to the island of Flatey when a badly decomposed body is found on a remote islet Who was he and how did he get there? We gradually meet the locals some helpful some eccentric and it is this insi

    Paperback ✓ Flateyjargáta ePUB ô flateyjargáta ebok, Flateyjargáta PDFEPUBThis book is actually a decent story and makes for a somewhat typical mystery The Icelandic setting and reliance on a historical Icelandic Norse manuscript as a center focus adds a somewhat unique twist but in many ways it doesn't move any further than being a Icelandic version of a Dan Brown novel a la The Davinci CodeThe story is entertaining and quick however so it isn't what I would call bad The 3 star review reflects the entertainment value The reason it is no higher is of a reflection of a less than idea translation or a bit of a simplistic writing style I suppose when you are going for the action mystery type genre the writing style has to be simplistic but I can't help but think that the real book

    Paperback ✓ Flateyjargáta ePUB ô flateyjargáta ebok, Flateyjargáta PDFEPUBThis is an old fashioned cozy In fact since it takes place in 1960 I thought it might be a reprint from a book published that yearI like meandering stories with out of the norm characters And since it's set in Flatey part of Iceland I enjoyed learning about the culture and relations between Icelanders and other like countriesA Danish professor studying the Flatey Enigma an unsolved modern enigma about the Flatey Runes is found dead on a tiny island by seal hunters Later a reporter is found in a Flatey cemetery mutilated in the famous Viking Blood Eagle where lungs are ripped out to look like wings The man sent to collect the first body is a novice The second body makes him sick Finally he becomes one of the suspects himselfThrough all the stilted dialogue and meandering progressions the stories about the Flatey Runes kept me enthralledAnd when I
