Snowblind - A 66 degrees north novel by Edward Weinman. - DIGITAL .PDF READER VERSION
Iceland was once the pride of Europe—a strong economy, beautiful people, supposedly one of the happiest nations on Earth. Suddenly, it went bankrupt. Snowblind examines Iceland at exactly this moment, zeroing in on Jón, a morally confused banker, as his life spirals out of control in tandem with the unraveling of his nation.
Snowblind details what happens when a drug deal turns sour. At the heart of the novel lies the fragile relationship between two estranged brothers, Jón and Palli. As winter suffocates them with 20 hours of darkness, the brothers find themselves with blood on their hands, and on the run from Gummi, Iceland’s only true homicide detective. As they crisscross Iceland, the torturous chase unearths a bewitching country, unforgiving terrain and a spiritual darkness so debilitating it leads Icelanders to violence, binge drinking and murder.
