    First of all, the greatest crime committed here is the cover of the Norwegian edition... It's a bit stupid, but it works. I've read far worse nordic noir. But what fascinates me about this formulaic series from Yrsa Sigurđardóttir is that we know she can do so much better! Better than this series and certainly better than this and the book that came before it. Is she writing them with one hand tied behind her back, just to pay the bills? One-book-a-year deal with her publisher? Has she become laz First of all, the greatest crime committed here is the cover of the Norwegian edition... It's a bit stupid, but it works.

One-book-a-year deal with her publisher? Has she become lazy? Ran out of good ideas? I still sometimes scare myself at night when I think of her first horror, which I read late at night 8-10 years ago. Her stand-alones are amazing. Her Tóra series was captivating. Then came Huldar... WHYYY??? Time for a new series, Yrsa!

Yes - that has often come with a ruck load of smile producing carnage and delightfully gruesome murder attached, but there is no denying that the issues that are confronted are thought provoking and often highly emotive. That is especially true of The Fallout which is, as ever, very timely and relevant and all too scarily plausible in parts. The murders may have come down a notch in terms of skin crawling darkness, but they are still a cut (or chop) above your average domestic homicide and all too frustrating for Erla, Huldar and the team to solve, in part because getting the identity of the victim is proving more than a little challenging. I do love Huldar and Freyja as characters. They are two who I was drawn to from the very first book and their tumultuous relationship, has led to many a smile as i've read through the pages. Huldar is a fairly traditional cop, determined, but not ambitious, slightly squeamish which, given the kinds of cases he's been faced with over the course of the series still makes me smile, and totally fascinated and hopeful when it comes to his relationship with Freyja. Freyja is focused, kind, empathetic and someone who maybe protests a touch too much when it comes to Huldar's attentions. It's fair to say that they haven't had the most straightforward of friendships - a little stretching of the truth and a work demotion will tend to put a dampener on a blossoming romance - but there is no denying the chemistry between them and the will-they/won't-they element of the series has been a real draw. Then there is Erla, Huldar's boss, one time lover and a general pain in his rear but someone he does respect and who, despite her gruff exterior and no-nonsense attitude, also makes me smile. There is something about her directness which makes her a likeable if disagreeable character. And there are some comical moments and surprising revelations with regards to Erla, especially after the bombshell dropped last time around. As for the story, it is very relevant in today's society, given the whole rise in challenge and debate over the vaccinations for Covid-19. This is not the premise of this book, but the whole aspect of the anti-vax movement and the potential impact of parents who choose or maybe even just neglect to get their children vaccinated. Add into that a shocking scene which opens the book and seems almost incongruous to the rest of the story for a while, and the scene is set for a very emotive story. Yrsa Sigurdardottir excels in wringing out every ounce of emotion from the book, making the characters individual collective stories so evocative that you cannot help but feel for them. The sense of loss is palpable but so is the anger and the central investigation for Huldar and co seems, at times, almost secondary to the course of the book, even though it is a vital part of the whole picture. Once again children are the key to everything, but in what context is very slowly and carefully revealed. There is a lot of suspense and mystery in this book, but perhaps less an immediate sense of threat that in some of its predecessors. That's not a bad thing, and totally suits the tone and theme of the story. Pacing is just right and picks up in the exact spot where, as readers, we realise something catastrophic may be about to begin. It is a book packed with mystery - not least the first victim's identity - but with so many more questions beside, and a book that will make you think. For me, I know exactly which side of the debate I sit on with regards to vaccinations, but many opinions will differ, and often for very good reason. But the devastating impact of one quick decision cannot be denied and has overwhelming consequence for others, hence the very appropriate title of the book. The tone is pitched perfectly, melancholic, driven by the notion of family and children which has always been key, but with a mixture of lightheartedness and chilling atmosphere which kept me entirely pulled into the story. And then the ending. Unexpected - to a point - there did come a time when I had an inkling but it's still a bit of a shocker seeing it in black and white. It's a turning point in many relationships in this book, leaving us with a kind of sense of hope, maybe a thawing of feeling between Freyja and Huldar, and a perfect place to leave the team. I've loved these books and loved getting to know Yrsa Siguardaottir's work. Can't wait to read more of her books in the future.

    Þessi bók náði mér ekki. Sakamálið náði einhvern veginn aldrei flugi og Huldar og Freyja eru orðin þreytt. Þeirra mál var reyndar ekki eins áberandi nú og í fyrri bókum en þá var alla vega þessi spenna og togstreyta á milli þeirra en nú skipti eiginlega ekki einu sinni máli hvað þeim finnst hvoru um annað. Og þessi flutningur Freyju yfir lögregluna heppnaðist ekkert svakalega vel. Ég mæli með að næsta bók fjalli annað hvort aftur um Þóru eða leiti á nýjar slóðir.

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Hodder & Stoughton for an advance copy of The Fallout, the sixth novel to feature child psychologist Freyja and detective Huldar, set in Reykjavik. The discovery of a dismembered corpse in the boot of a badly parked car gives Freyja and Huldar, on their first case together, a link to an eleven year old case, the disappearance of baby Mia.

The discovery of a dismembered corpse in the boot of a badly parked car gives Freyja and Huldar, on their first case together, a link to an eleven year old case, the disappearance of baby Mia. I enjoyed The Fallout once it warmed up and I could see the links. Initially it didn’t hold my attention as it kept changing point of view to characters who had no immediate relevance to the dismembered and headless body or any apparent links to any other characters. I understand that this scene setting approach is necessary given the multi stranded plot and the number of characters with skin in the game, but I must admit to getting impatient for the links to reveal themselves. Once the motives and slim links became apparent the plot is a cracker, so clever and so full of misdirection. The motive for the murder is not revealed until the end, but in the meantime it offers so much room for speculation, although mine was all wrong because I obediently followed the author’s handy hints. Nothing is as it seems and nothing is off the table with the final chapter producing some last minute twists that bring the novel to a close with a couple of bombshells. I’m in awe at how well done it is. I always like spending time with Freyja and Huldar. They are very realistic characters with a little humour to lighten the atmosphere. This is especially needed in this novel as the themes are quite dark (the dismembered corpse is a hint) and yet the emotions behind it all are very understandable, if not the extreme reactions to the situation the characters find themselves in. I would say that the nonsense in the blurb about Freyja’s mistake is massively overplayed and while it has ramifications for her personal life it’s a bit of a nothing burger. The Fallout is a good read that I have no hesitation in recommending.

At times formulaic and with trope takes by what came across as a token psychologist character. About 70 pages in, and I was left feeling I’d seen this useless profiling schtick at least 100 times before in mediocre crime dramas. Freyja as a character was being sold short and mainly used to drive the driveling romantic tension forwards as I have a hard time believing anyone would open that position at a police station if that was the work she provided (or is there a demand for psychologist fortune-cookie advice?) Anywho, it’s still an alright read which hits close to home with themes of vaccine hesitancy & spread of illnesses to susceptible people who pay for that hesitancy with their lives mixed into the murder mystery. A read fit for these imminent winter days when we find the hours of daylight growing short here in the north, -even if I struggle to see the point with certain characters.

Maður var búinn að fatta hvers vegna morðið var framið og hvaða barn var hvað, en ég hefði samt viljað fá eitthvað meira bitastætt. Uppgjörið gekk of hratt og var svo endasleppt. Þetta var ekki fullnægjandi endir. Engu að síður var þetta að mestu ánægjuleg lesning og ég mun áreiðanlega lesa fleiri bækur eftir Yrsu. Þetta var bara ekki sú besta.

Læseren føres, nok lidt søvndyssende rundt, indtil alting eksploderer og klimaks afslører et sindrigt mønster. Som altid er Yrsa Sigurdardóttir usentimental i sin beskrivelse af de kriminelle handlingers voldsomhed. Jeg vil godt give Tavshed 4 af 5 stjerner, men jeg synes bedre om flere af de tidligere Freya og Huldar krimier.

    Een geweldig einde van een top-serie. Eigenlijk vind ik het wel jammer dat het hiermee stopt. Maar soms is het ook moeilijk om afscheid te nemen van zeer goed neergezette personages. Stiekem hoop ik dat er toch nog een vervolg komt, maar dat is uiteraard aan de schrijver. Maar ik heb ervan genoten en dit spannende deel was mijn tijd meer dan waard.

    En gledelig overraskelse med en ny del i Huldar og Freyja serien. Veldig aktuelt starter tragedien når en liten kreftpasient dør ikke av kreft men av meslinger. Og da blir det flokkimmunitet og smittesporing. Andre temaer er surrogati og oppvekst med syke og alkoholiserte foreldre.

Ik was erg benieuwd naar dit zesde en laatste deel van deze serie. De voorgaande delen waren erg goed, dus ik was benieuwd hoe Sigurdardóttir deze serie zou laten eindigen. Dus ik begon snel te lezen. Het verhaal begint elf jaar geleden en wordt het ‘voorwoord’ genoemd. Hierin lees je dat Númi onder de douche staat terwijl hij zijn dochter even buiten in de kinderwagen gezet heeft, met de babyfoon naast haar, zodat hij het meteen hoort als ze wakker wordt. Echter op een bepaald moment hoort hij een vreemd geluid en als hij onder de douche uitspringt en naar zijn dochtertje Mia toesnelt, blijkt dat niet zij, maar een vreemde baby in de kinderwagen ligt… En deze baby is dood. Hierna maken we meteen een sprong in de tijd naar vijf maanden geleden, waar we op de begrafenis zijn van een jong meisje die gestorven is aan het mazelenvirus. Haar vader wil uitzoeken door wie zij het mazelenvirus gekregen heeft en zint op wraak. Hierna zijn we weer in het nu en komen we Huldar en Freyja tegen. Freyja werkt nu volledig bij de politie en is niet meer in dienst van het kindertehuis. Ik had in het begin wat moeite om de verschillende zaken te kunnen volgen en vond het begin dan ook redelijk chaotisch. Later werd dit beter in het verhaal en kwam er ook wat structuur in het verhaal, naar mijn gevoel. Hierdoor had ik langer nodig om echt in het verhaal te komen. Dit komt volgens mij ook doordat er zoveel in één keer speelde. Aan de ene kant moest natuurlijk de moord op de vrouw opgelost worden, maar ook de vader van het kind wat gestorven is aan de mazelen krijgt een duidelijke stem in het boek. Daarnaast komt de vader van de verdwenen baby nog ruimschoots aan bod en hierdoor vroeg ik me regelmatig af wat deze zaken allemaal met elkaar te maken hadden. Deze verhaallijnen komen natuurlijk allemaal mooi samen naar het einde toe. Op een bepaald moment wordt een en ander ook duidelijker waardoor het lezen ook prettiger wordt. De verschillende personages die geen rol spelen in de serie zijn goed uitgewerkt en komen op mij echt over. De gevoelens van de personages komen geloofwaardig over en hierdoor had ik het gevoel alsof deze dingen echt gebeurd zouden kunnen zijn. De seriepersonages blijven in dit deel een beetje op de vlakte. Doordat er qua misdaad al zoveel gebeurd, is het ook begrijpelijk dat hier minder aandacht aan besteed is. Echter, wat ik persoonlijk wel jammer vind, is dat de persoonlijke verhaallijnen van Huldar en Freyja in dit laatste deel een beetje op de achtergrond blijven en als afsluiter blijf je een beetje op je honger zitten hoe het nu met hun afloopt. Er blijven naar mijn gevoel toch enkele losse eindjes achter, waardoor je je toch stiekem afvraagt of Sigurdardóttir wellicht de deur op een kiertje heeft laten staan om toch nog een vervolg te kunnen schrijven. Ik zal Huldar en Freyja zeker gaan missen en hoop dat er snel een nieuwe serie van Yrsa Sigurdardóttir verschijnt.

    Nok en god krim fra Sigurdóttir. Spennende, og spenner flere historier som flettes sammen på slutten.

    Hefði viljað gefa 31/2 stjörnu enda ágætis afþreying þrátt fyrir að Yrsa hafi gert betur.

    Fín afþreying, löggusaga, sæmilega fyrirsjáanleg en ágætis aöguþráður.
