FlateyjargátaKetilsey Island Near this deserted island off the western coast of Iceland the dawning of spring brings with it new life for the local wildlife But for the decaying body discovered by three seal hunters winter is a matter of permanence After it is found to be a Danish cryptographer missing for months the ensuing investigation uncovers a mysterious link between him and a medieval manusc. This is a mystery with different meanings with a couple of mysteries threading through out the whole story and the dead bodies are almost incidental to the true story which is a snapshot of small Icelandic island life during the 1960's If you're a fan of modern formula driven mysteries or hard and fast action this book will bore you to tears I enjoyed the book because I am an armchair anthropologist and I loved the hints of many different mysteries within the mystery of the occult and of the ancient mythology This is a story of a book of ancient sagas called The Flatey Book that happened to be written on the small island of Flatey which is in the 1960's of fading glory and population and which was noted in the book maybe misnamed as it just happened to be written on the island and should have been named after the fantastic poets and illustrators who made the book It is also a story of despair professional greed and national pride all centered around the Flatey Book When your roots even as a poor farmer go back to the powerful times of the Vikings how far will you go for this book that keeps this history alive How much meaning does this ancient book have in their lives The author painstakingly allows you to find out how each and every islander feels his or her connection to The Book it's one of the pluses of this story things unfold you aren't just TOLD how people feel You are told how the islanders feed themselves and stay alive but you are allowed to get to know them and decide for yourself how they feel about The Book It's difficult to write as it would be easy to give it all away and that would ruin the mystery part of the book though dead people are almost incidental to THE BOOK The only problem that I have with the book is that it is a little slow and I had to keep reminding myself that it's on a very small island in the 60's that the slowness just mirrors the style of life in a place where getting to the mail boat on time was the most exciting thing that happened in years But all in all I've already recommended it to friends who might like it It's worth the read and I hope to read from this author

There really is a series of Icelandic sagas called The Flatey Book Viktor Arnar Ingolfsson has crafted an interesting mystery story about a couple of strange deaths around the Island of Flatey in Iceland's Westfjord country For once there is no super smooth investigator only several officials trying to put two and two togetherThe motivating factor is a series of enigmas penned by a saga scholar in the 19th century It seems that the victims were all connected in some way with these enigmas and their solution I have not been able to discover whether the Flatey Book actually has any enigmas related to it In the end this is a uirky tale with interesting characters who live on an isolated island which has seen better days
