A Nabokovian goof on Agatha Christie, a madcap mystery in the deceptive tradition of The Crying of Lot 49, Pale Fire meets The Da Vinci Code. Icelander is the debut novel from a brilliant new mind, an intricate, giddy romp steeped equally in Icelandic lore and pulpy intrigue. When Our Heroine's dear friend is found murdered, it's an obvious job for her mother, a legendary crime-solver and evil-thwarter. But her mother is dead, and Our Heroine has no interest in inheriting the business, or being chased through a sewer, or listening to skaldic karoake, or fleeing the inhuman Refusirkir, or -- But Evil has no interest in her interests, and thus: adventure ensues.
