Becky Bookworm Book Review: Kin (Helga Finnsdottir 1) by Snorri Kristjansson

Kin (The Helga Finnsdottir #1)Kin by Snorri Kristjansson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is an extremely well written murder mystery with echoes to Poirot and Sherlock but set within the Viking era.
For one who is not usually patient enough for crime mysteries I was instantly gripped.
The dynamic and variety of characters that make up this extended family reunion, both men, women and children, are so 3D, realistic and exhibit personalities that we may all recognise in ourselves and our own families.
Yet the tensions and drama are wrapped around a mystery not just who will be murdered but the cause of death but literal and motive, who did it and who knows... and with a fanastic cast of suspects and so many clues or misleading clues... it really does keep the reader and the inquisitive character of Helga, guessing until the final pages.
I am extremely impressed in how superbly enjoyable this Viking Noir was to read and I am delighted that there will be another one.
