Winterkill by Ragnar Jonasson, David Warriner (Translated by) Series: Dark Iceland series

He liked working in this small town, there weren't many big problems.  But then he gets a call about a dead body in the main street of the town.  He goes and when he sees who is dead, he knows he'll never get that image out out of his head.  She's only nineteen but her life is over...

Orenda Books and Edelweiss let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published March 1st.

Ari doesn't know if she jumped or was pushed from the balcony of the building.  He starts asking questions.  The lady had opened the door from her bedroom thinking it was one of her tenants.  She didn't see her come in or see her fall to her death.

The people he questions are not telling the whole truth, but it doesn't take long before he realizes that.  It gets even more complicated when he realizes there was more than one death.

As he tries to make sense of the clues, he finds even another death.  It was a murder, but I felt like it was justice.

The reasons for the first two deaths were rather mundane but no one wanted to be blamed.  It just doesn't work that way...
