Icelandic Lawyer with Soul of New Yorker
Lawyer Thora Gudmundsdottir, the heroine of the five mystery novels in the series that bears her name, takes everything in stride except boredom and being inappropriately dressed. When her clueless but innocent clients wind up in jail, Thora leaps at the opportunity to launch her own investigations and clear their names. She has piloted investigations in Iceland and Greenland.
If you're looking for an absorbing cozy set in an exotic location, try one of these.
This female legal eagle just cracks me up. Her sense of humor and intelligence keep her going when her investigations uncover dark doings and desperate people. Highly recommended to cozy fans and anyone looking for an engrossing murder mystery, a world-weary female hero and snappy dialogue.
