I am reading another Icelandic mystery novel - Someone to Watch Over Me by Yrsa Sigurdardottir.
I can smell the hakarl and brennevin now...
Both of these got a mention in this novel but only because Thora's boyfriend is a German and her friends kept inviting him to dinner parties so that they could serve hakarl and brennevin to him. He gamely played the naive foreigner when they did.

I am now reading "The Cleaner" by Paul Cleave. It is about a New Zealand serial killer who decides to investigates when a copycat's killer crime is attributed to him.
