Description
"In January 2009 there are demonstrations in the centre of Reykjavik. A small group of protesters meet up and complain about how the demonstrations are too peaceful, not violent enough. They get drunk together, and then go out on to the streets where they attack and accidentally kill a banker, the former boyfriend of one of them. The death is dressed up as suicide. Eight months later a senior Icelandic banker is murdered in London. Magnus works with the British police on the case. As Magnus begins to discover links between the deaths of the two bankers, it becomes clear that there is a conspiracy to kill the people whom Icelanders blame most for the economic crisis in their country. Magnus must nail the conspirators before they kill again. Meanwhile Magnus makes uncomfortable discoveries about his Icelandic family going back several generations. Are these related to the death of his own father in Massachusetts when Magnus was a student?" -- from author's web site.
