9780099535638: Operation Napoleon

1945: a lost German bomber crashes on the Vatnajokull glacier in Iceland. Inexplicably, in the midst of World War Two, there are both German and American officers on board. One of the senior German officers claims that their best chance of survival is to try to walk to the nearest farm and sets off, a briefcase handcuffed to his wrist. 1999, mid-winter, and the US Army is secretively trying to remove an aeroplane from the Vatnajokull glacier. By coincidence two young Icelanders become involved - but will pay with their lives. Before they are captured, one of the two contacts his sister, Kristin, who will not rest until she discovers the truth of her brother's fate. Her pursuit puts her in great danger, leading her on a long and hazardous journey in search of the key to the riddle about Operation Napoleon.

Review:

"Rather than using excessive language and unnecessary description, Indrišason chooses a minimal style, which drip-feeds the details and keeps the reader guessing... Operation Napoleon is an intriguing novel, bleak and harsh in its description of cold, military narratives" (Sophie Gordon Aesthetica)

"There are hints of some of Indridason's trademark motifs-emotionally distant parents, brotherhood, the harsh Icelandic wilderness-but it's clear that he is using Operation Napoleon to address what seems to be a deeply controversial factor in Icelandic life: the US military presence at Keflavik" (Euro Crime)

"An international literary phenomenon - and it's easy to see why. His novels are gripping, authentic, haunting and lyrical" (Harlan Coben)

Book Description:

A compelling international thriller sweeping from modern Iceland to America and Nazi Germany at the end of World War II.
