Sinopsis: Following her promotion and working now from Reykjavik, Gunnhildur is given responsibility for two cases - the first in tracking down an escaped convict who's keen to settle old scores, and the other, the murder of a TV fitness presenter in her city centre apartment. With the police short staffed and underfunded following the financial crash, Gunnhildur and her team set about delving into the backgrounds of both, where they uncover some unwelcome secrets and some influential friends of both who have no wish to be in the public eye. Set in an Iceland that is coming to terms with the deepening recession, Gunnhildur has to take stock of the whirlwind changes that have taken place as she investigates criminals at opposite ends of the social scale as some uncomfortable links appear between the two cases. Praise for "Frozen Out": "A meticulously constructed thriller, peopled with exceptionally convincing characters and shot through with black humour. "Frozen Out" is as chilling as an Icelandic winter". (S.J. Bolton). "[A] crackling fiction debut ...palpable authenticity". ("Publishers Weekly"). "British author Bates captures the chilly spirit of Nordic crime fiction in what is the apparent start of a promising series with a distinctly appealing protagonist. Fans of Arnaldur Indridason's "Reykjavik" mysteries will want to add Bates to their reading lists". ("Booklist). "Gunna is an admirable protagonist: sensible, intelligent and determined...I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and can recommend it very highly as a flying start to what seems to be shaping up to be a superb new series". ("Eurocrime"). "Well written and absorbing". ("Women's Voice"). "...compelling fast paced stuff that never falters". (Hackwriters.com). "...his blistering debut reads more like an American procedural than the British product, right down to a denouement as acridly unsatisfying as today's headlines". ("Kirkus Reviews").
Product Description: Officer Gunnhildur, recently promoted from her post in rural Iceland to Reykjavík’s Serious Crime Unit, is tasked with hunting down escaped convict Long Ommi, who has embarked on a spree of violent score-settling in and around the city. Meanwhile, she’s also investigating the murder of a fitness guru in her own city-center apartment. As Gunna delves into the cases, she unearths some unwelcome secrets and influential friends shared by both guru and convict. Set in an Iceland plagued by an ongoing financial crisis, Gunna has to take stock of the whirlwind changes that have swept through the country—and the fact that at the highest levels of power, the system’s endemic corruption still leads, inevitably, to murder.
