Read full description of the books:
I really like Yrsa Sigurðardóttir. No sooner do I finish one book (Last Rituals), then I start another (The Day is Dark). And now having finished that one, I crave a new one.
So why only three stars? The Day is Dark is creepy with fascinating Greenlandic information. I loved the locale, I like Thora, and the book completely engaged me. Still, I can't quite get beyond liked a lot to love.
In this installment of the series, Thora and her boyfriend are investigating a series of mysterious disappearances at a mine in Greenland. The bank financing the mine has hired them to clear up any suspicion that something - or someone - malicious is involved so that work on the mine can continue as planned.
Thora and Gunther arrive and are stranded in the freezing base of operations. A woman and two men have disappeared-all involved in some way or another with the taunting/defense of alcoholic (and gay) work Arnur who has been driven by the men back to drinking and rehab. The woman, a scientist who defended Arnur from the harassment has also disappeared. The workers remaining (most have left following the disappearances) are tense and bickering, the residents of the nearby village refuse to talk to the people from the mine, insisting that the area is haunted, food and drink are limited, and Thora misses her children (as well as running water).
I began feeling somewhat desperately claustrophobic myself. I guessed the solution long before then end and found the book often too slow-paced for a thriller.
So that's why I gave it three stars. On the other hand, I seem to be addicted. Despite my vow not to buy any more books this month (plus a long list of books I'm currently reading and books I plan on reading that I already own), I'm already fighting the urge to buy another Thora.
So there must be more to the writing than I understand...
