What you need to know before your trail

It was probably never going to be a good idea to try and rob Reykjavik’s premier drugs dealer and then make a quick escape to the sun. And for Magni and Ossi, when their getaway driver fails to show, things take a turn for the worse.

They take two women hostages and then hole themselves up in a  very remote hotel where they hide out waiting for their next move.

Meanwhile in Reykjavik,  Gunna and her team find themselves at a dead end investigating what appear to be the unrelated disappearance of a mother, her daughter and their car during a day’s shopping, and the death of a thief in a house fire. But when links start to appear, there is the overriding problem of how two small time crooks will think to get rid of two hostages they don’t want anymore.

Travel Guide

The Icelandic police is well portrayed here – everything from Gunnhildur’s private life, to the overall solid detail of a gripping Scandi police procedural. Gunnhildur is a calm quiet character not unlike her Icelandic setting but they have geysers here too..

From the setting of Reykjavik and the streets where we meet Gunnhildur and the police carrying out their investigations, to the more remote setting of “The arsehole of beyond”

Magni and Ossi have captured mum Erna and daughter Tinna Lind and try to keep them quiet. Magni and Tinna have a strange relationship and these two, in a remote house find it hard to act like hostage takers. Their bumbling has led them here but their cunning has to allow them to escape both the police and the guy they’ve crossed along the way.
