Cold Comfort

23 November 2009

Cold Comfort takes Gunna to a new post and new responsibilities. In such a small community as Iceland it’s not easy to hide, but her team has been working on recapturing Long Ommi, an escaped convict who has managed to avoid being recaptured. As the man has also embarks on a spree of settling old scores in and around Reykjavík, she is also handed the task of tracking down the killer of a fitness guru in her own city-centre apartment.

As Gunna delves into the backgrounds of both, she unearths some unwelcome secrets and some influential friends of both who have no wish to be in the public eye.
Set in an Iceland that is coming to terms with a growing tough recession following on the heels of the financial crisis, Gunna has to take stock of the whirlwind changes that have taken place in the country – and the fact that behind the scenes, remarkably little has changed.
