My Soul to Take This by Yrsa Sigurdardottir is a murder mystery (actually two of them), set in Snofellsnes, a peninsula on Western Iceland about 120km from Reykjavik. Author Sigurdardottir weaves a tangled web of mystery, introducing multiple suspects, an element of the other world while always leaving the reader somewhat in doubt as to who the real culprit is.
The story is not always what it seems as it unfolds. 3/4 of the way through the book many clues only leave you guessing and asking questions like “who did it”? As the main character Thora narrows down the suspects her short list of possible culprits will only leave you surprised towards the end of this book.
