  • Holly B
    This was my first novel by this author. It is book two in the series, but worked as a stand-alone. Although, I do feel like I missed out on some of the backstory in book one. Detective Huldar and a child psychologist named Freyja are trying to solve a case that involves a note that was found in a school’s time capsule. It is an interesting premise and a much darker plot than I usually read. A few cringe-worthy scenes to be sure. I wasn't able t...
  • Crime by the Book
    4.5/5 stars for this outstanding Nordic crime novel! Iceland’s Queen of Crime returns in 2019 with the second installment in her superb Children’s House series: THE RECKONING. Picking up where her 2018 release THE LEGACY left off, Sigurdardottir’s newest crime novel delivers a gritty, layered procedural exploring the longstanding implications of childhood trauma. In a story both gruesome and heart-wrenching, Sigurdardottir weaves a masterfu...

    Μου είχαν πει ότι δεν ήταν καλό και ήμουν έτοιμη να μην το ξεκινήσω, αλλά τελικά εμένα μου άρεσε λίγο περισσότερο από το πρώτο! Συμπέρασμα: Πρώτα να διαβάζω και μετά να κρίνω! Ωραία πλοκή και ευτυχώς χωρίς τόσες περιττές λεπτομέρειες όπως στο πρώτο...

    I discovered the Icelandic author Yrsa Sigurdardottir, last year. I read the first story in the Children's House series, The Legacy this week. I was very impressed. I simply had to get my hands on The Reckoning and see what else Sigurdardottir has in store for us. This is such a fantastic series. I guarantee you will do the same.In The Legacy, we got to know two key figures. Freyja is a child psychologist, whose job it is to work with traumatised...

    Το βιβλίο ξεκινάει με τον αστυνόμο Χούλνταρ, ο οποίος μετά την υποβίβαση του στην αστυνομία, τον έχουν βάλει να ξεσκαρτάρει, ουσιαστικά, μικρές υποθέσεις που έχει το αστυνομικό τμήμα της περιοχής του. Μια χρονοκάψουλα που ξεθάφτηκε μετά από δέκα ...

    In reality, Iceland has virtually no violent crime. It’s worth some quick research to discover why. But this is a work of fiction, and the detectives in Reykjavik are busy.One afternoon, Vaka’s father is late picking her up from school with tragic results. A decade later, a series of murders appear connected to the girl’s violent death.It’s impossible to compete with Tana French, but The Reckoning will appeal to her fans. Just as French...

    4.5 *s rounded up!Yrsa Sigurdardóttir is one of my favorite Nordic Noir authors. The Reckoning is book 2 in the Children’s House series featuring Detective Huldar and child psychologist Freyja. A note is found in a time capsule at a school threatening to kill 6 people identified only initials. Since the note was written by a child, Huldar brings Freyja in to help. This novel has everything I love about good crime fiction. It is multi-layered w...
  • Anne
    I loved Huldar and Freyja in The Legacy so was anxious to continue this series set in Iceland. It did not disappoint either as there were plenty of suspects in the cold case of young Vaka who was raped and then murdered. Now the convicted killer is being released from prison and others connected to the case are turning up dead. Is he murdering again? Or is it his son who was most likely abused at home and has anger issues? Lots of twists and turn...
  • OutlawPoet
    So, I'll admit that this was a slower read for me.I, to my shame (and due to my unfamiliarity with Icelandic names), kept getting two main characters mixed up. It definitely made the reading a challenge. I eventually got them straight. Eventually.Even with my 'name' confusion, I did enjoy the tale.Iceland itself is almost a rather intimidating character and our mystery was both complex and intriguing.I did enjoy our main character, though his rom...
  • Dimitris Passas
    This book was a big disappointment for me, being a devoted fan of Yrsa Sigurdardottir's novels and Icelandic crime fiction in general. While the first book in this new series (Freya and Huldar), titled ''DNA'', was aligned with the previous dark, suspenseful and gory novels of the so-called ''Queen of Icelandic Noir'', the ''Reckoning'' fell short to my expectations as it is a rather conventional police procedural crime novel which focuses more o...
  • Laura Rash
    A tad disappointed in this one. It moved very slowly until about the last 1/4. Didn’t quite have the zest the first in this series had. I still really enjoyed these characters & wasn’t able to guess “the bad guy” and one main occurrence that was revealed at the end. I’ll definitely still continue the series.
  • Anna
    Kolejny thriller Yrsy z serii o Huldarze i Freyi. Moim zdaniem dużo leszy od DNA. Huldar został zdegradowany, ostatnie śledztwo poszło tak źle, że zwierzchnicy zaledwie po kilku miesiącach wycofali go z pozycji szefa wydziału. Ten fakt Huldara wcale nie martwi - nie czuł się dobrze jako szef, nie lubił papierkowej roboty oraz zarządzania ludźmi. Wszystko byłoby ok gdyby nie koledzy. Huldar jest kompletnie ignorowany w biurze, nie do...

    Am impresia că despre țările nordice scandinave s-a creat o imagine idilică complet falsă, aceea de oameni fericiți, cu venituri mult peste medie, care nu merg decât vreo câteva ore la muncă, apoi le rămâne o grămadă de timp pe care să-l petreacă acasă, cu familia, ori în concedii în țări exotice, cu climă caldă, ori pe mare, cu iahtul personal, la pescuit, la vânătoare și așa mai departe. Însă autorii care scriu liter...

    This novel marks the return of police detective Huldar and child psychologist Freyja. Since their first disastrous collaboration in The Legacy, both have been demoted – a situation which Huldar finds far easier to come to terms with than Freyja.A note written by a 13-year-old schoolboy ten years previously is discovered in a buried time capsule. It predicts the death of six people – only referred to by initials. The discovery of the letter co...

    Ah, Yrsa, Yrsa, Yrsa. Another excellent book from one of my favourite authors. This is the 2nd in the Freyja and Huldar series, following on from The Legacy. This is a very dark, but compelling story dealing with some decidedly difficult themes. Yrsa doesn't shy away from these, and really puts her characters through the mill. Freya and Huldar's relationship, such as it is burn personally and professionally, is still tender age the events of The ...
  • Jens Ivar
    Yrsa is a good writer and she tests her limits. This is her second book about Freyja, child psychologist and Huldar, the cop. I kinda like them, Huldar is not the typical scandinavian police, all mopey and dark. He is a bit of a fool. Not the sharpest mind but does an ok job.But this book is all about the exposition, we are always told what has happened but rarely shown. That was annoying. No excitement and was pretty dull. You can do better Yrsa...
  • VickiLee
    #2 Freya and Huldsr thriller. The novel begins with the rape and murder of an 8 year old girl. This is tough reading material, and at various points I felt personal despair for the human condition. There is a certain charm evident in the dysfunctional relationship between Frey’s and Huldar. For all it’s dark subject matter, I really liked this novel and read it steadily to the end.

    4+ stars for this second book in the series and it was excellent. At times the subject matter is a pretty hard read but the writing is superb, I look forward to reading the next in series if there is one... let’s hope so. Well recommended

Darin enthalten: 10 Jahre alte Briefe von Schülern, die beschreiben, wie sie sich Island im Jahre 2016 vorstellen.

    4.5 starsYrsa Sigurdardóttir delivers another superb, edge-of-your seat dark thriller with tinges of horror sure to keep you up at night.THE RECKONING—the second installment in the Children’s House series following THE LEGACY, picks right back up with the now demoted Huldar. He’s investigating a 2016 letter found in a time capsule that predicts the deaths of six people denoted only by initials. It’s probably nothing—nonsensical writing...

    Ein Psychothriller, der mich wirklich gefordert hat, denn ich habe mit den Ermittlern nach dem Täter gesucht, geriet in Zeitdruck und kam dennoch keinen Schritt weiter. Meine eigenen Gedankengänge brachten mich zwar ein wenig früher weiter, aber die Identität des Täters war für mich eine Überraschung. Und dessen Motiv. - Spannung ohne Ende mit Gruselfaktor (nichts für schwache Nerven) - von mir gibt es 09/10 Punkte, und ich warte voller S...

    Skvělá kniha, která vás už od prvních stránek vtáhne a nepustí do poslední stránky. DNA byla skvělá, ale že ji Černá díra na plné čáře předčí? Stalo se. Autorka to se čtenáři umí. Atmosféra mrazivého Islandu je skvěle vykreslená už od prologu, který byl až strach nahánějící. Téma bylo smutné, nejhorší pro mě bylo pomyšlení na to, že se to děje pořád. Závěr byl excelentní a epilog? Po jeho pře...

    4.5 starsThis second installment of Icelandic crime by Yrsa Sigurdardóttir is a marvelous macabre piece of fiction. You follow different people involved in the case, while being solved by investigator Huldar, getting the occasional help from Freyja a psychologist.I'm not gonna say much about the writing, or the substance of the characters. The writing was understandable, but I read it in Danish so can't specifically judge the original writing. I...
