    Translated from Icelandic, this is the first in the Children s House series set in Reykavik This is a murky, dark and twisted tale which begins in 1987 where after an unspeakable event, child experts make the controversial decision to separate three children into different adoption homes This connects to what happens later down the years in 2015 when a mother is gruesomely murdered, discovered under her bed is her seven year old daughter, Margret, the only witness to the crime Freyja is director and psychologist at the Children s House which has the remit of meeting the needs of young, traumatised and abused children They also facilitate contact between the child and the police with a view to protecting the child Detectives Hulder and Rikhardur are the investigators on the case and needless to say, Margret is a difficult witness to pin down Freyja distrusts the police, and Hulder in particular, with whom she has history There are further deaths with the continuing strange use of ordinary household items as the murder weapons, and clues that include odd notes and coded messages on the radio It is a complex case where the killer will do anything to evade justice and is a difficult figure to discern.An atmosphere of menace pervades the book...

    This is the first book in the start of a new crime series which I devoured page by page.I d left this book at home, thought I had it in my bag when I knew I d be spending some time in the car and sitting for appointments at the hospital nothing serious I was so fed up as I couldn t wait to jump back into this plot.A ten year old daughter becomes the only witness to a terrible shocking murder Treading carefully the Police need to bring in some expertise The Children s house.Then people die.There somehow links together a pattern by texts, strange weird messages and num...

    If you either enjoy Nordic Noir or are looking for a fresh take on crime writing and weary of the same old, same old, consider The Legacy, the first in the Childrens House series by Yrsa Sigurdardottir First, a primer on Iceland for everyone not a resident of that country.Iceland has an estimated population of 300,000 and one of the lowest crime rates in the world Take a glance at the following UN data of 2009 homicides Brazil 43,909 Denmark 47 UK 724 US 15,241 Iceland 1That s right One If you think that s stunning, consider that in 2008 there were zero Moreover, although there are approximately 90,000 guns in Iceland for those 300,000 people , crimes in Iceland usually don t involve firearms Also, there is virtually no economic disparity or class tension 97% of Icelanders identify themselves as middle class One might well pity the writer who opts to write crime novels that take place in Iceland.Enter Yrsa Sigurdardottir, perhaps best known for her series in which the central character is Th ra Gudmundsd ttir Civil engineer by day Crime detective suspense writer by night M y job as an engineer gives me a particular perspective on the human experience and the way I depict it Engineers confront the world through technology, numbers, energy, strength, budgets, an...

    Although I am a great fan of Scandinavian crime fiction, for some reason I had not yet read anything by Yrsa Sigurdardottir So, when I discovered she was starting a new series that I could read from the beginning, I thought it was an ideal to chance to read her at last and I am glad I did We begin with events in 1987 and decisions involving some traumatised children.The novel then turns to 2015 and the horrific murder of a woman, whose young daughter is the only witness The crime is investigated by the newly promoted Detective Huldar and his partner, Rikhardur Huldar suspects that his promotion could be something of a poisoned chalice if he fails to solve his first major inquiry and things get worse when he becomes uncomfortably reacquainted with Frejya, the director of the Children s House, who is familiar with Huldar from a previous meeting As the novel unfolds, we have a twisted killer and some very gruesome deaths made somehow even ...

    I don t know if the author is just insanely prolific or whether there s a huge backlog of her work to translate into English, but it seems there s a new Yrsa Sigur ard ttir book every nine months or so, and here, like clockwork, is the latest The Legacy is the first in the Children s House series It introduces the central characters of Freyja, director of the Children s House refuge for traumatised and abused children, and police detective Huldar.The Legacy has one of those devilishly clever prologues set in 1987, it briefly depicts three young siblings being split up and sent to adoptive families We know nothing about them, except that their background is so disturbing that a the adults present can barely bring themselves to talk about it, and b it s deemed best to separate the children before their reliance on each other becomes unhealthy Flash forward to 2015, and the gruesome murder of a young mother with her seven year old daughter the only witness appears to have nothing to do with the opening scene But, of course, they must be connected If the opening hooks you, the compulsion to understand how 1987 and 2015 join up is what will drive you through almost 500 pages at speed.This being a series, it also needs a thread that will be carried through to subsequent books, and here it comes in the shape of an unnecessarily complex set of entanglements between Huldar and Freyja, no doubt setting up what will eventually become ...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this slice of Nordic Noir It was a gripping thriller with plenty of twists and turns, red herrings and imaginative murder weapons I found the murder scenes themselves edge of seat frightening, but without being unnecessarily gory in their descriptions The characters, including children and young people, were well written and believable Yes, there were some amazing coincidences pulling the whole thing together but that is often pa...
