When Sergeant Gunnhildur Gísladóttir of the local police force is called in to investigate the death of a man found tied to a bed in one of Reykjavík's nicest hotels, she finds no sign of criminal activity but suspects there may be more to the case than meets the eye. Could the death of the shipowner be related to a local gangster's recent return to Iceland after many years abroad?
What begins as a straightforward case for Gunnhildur soon explodes into a dangerous investigation, involving a discreet bondage society that ruthless men will go to violent extremes to keep secret.

Gunnhildur is such a down to earth character. Bates fills in private lives so well, adds depth to the story and the characters.

I was in the mood for a police procedural set in the north. I've read Bates' other books and think he is a skilled storyteller who has created some good characters. I also appreciate that he doesn't focus greatly on violent details. Bad things happen, but the reader is spared some of the gore.
