When the editors at Reykjavik-based The Afternoon News decide to expand the newspaper into northern Iceland—with their crime writer Einar as its sole reporter on location—the journalist feels as though he has stepped back in time. Compared to the hustle and bustle of the capital, where the nation’s economic and social crises rear their heads on a daily basis, the small town of Akureyri feels slow, quiet, and terribly old-fashioned.

So it’s only fitting that one of Einar’s first assignments is to cover a college theatre production of Loftur the Sorcerer, an Icelandic folk tale of ambition and greed. But that supposedly ancient history becomes ominously relevant when a local woman dies after falling overboard during a corporate boating retreat. All evidence indicates an accident, but when the victim’s mother cries foul play, kind hearted Einar agrees to investigate. Just days later, the lead actor in Loftur vanishes, leaving the locals reeling—and Einar unconvinced that a single village could be so accident prone.

Keenly perceptive and hungry for the truth, Einar begins to chip away at the quaint small-town façade, uncovering a tangled web of power and greed that threatens to devour the historic community for good.

Reviews from Amazon:

This book was nominated for the Icelandic Literature Prize (I assume in Icelandic). The translator, Anna Yates, produced a smoothly written English version. The fiction I have read that has been set in Iceland has been of two types, bleak and/or clever. Though Season of the Witch is a murder mystery, it really falls into the clever category.

Our main character, newspaper reporter Einar, has been exiled from Reykjavik to Akureyri in the northern part of Iceland. The deaths of a high school student and a woman in separate events become the focus of the storyline. Einar's efforts originally are devoted to turning those events into a series of stories that will help regional sales of the newspaper.

Of course, his involvement can't remain at that level. So (surprise, surprise) he also turns detective. From the high school to the nursing home to the candy factory; from drama productions to politics to crooks; from honour students to drop outs to cops and drug dealers we join Einar in his investigations.

The closer to the end I got, the faster I was turning the pages. It left me wanting to read more. The good ones cause that reaction. It gets five stars on my fun meter.
