• "Rather than using excessive language and unnecessary description, Indriðason 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
