Now reading: Veins of Ice by Yrsa Sigurðardóttir

Since this book has yet to be published in English, I have no way of confirming if Veins of Ice is the title it will be published under, but I found it on a reliable site on Icelandic literature. The Icelandic title is Auðnin (The Wasteland).

Here is a little teaser for the book, translated by myself:

They walked out of the shop, but Þóra stopped suddenly in the doorway when a familiar voice was heard from the direction of the security gate.
"If I can take one lighter aboard, why can't I take two?" thundered Bella. "What can I possibly do with two lighters that I can't do with one?"
Þóra turned back into the shop and headed in the direction of the strong liquor shelves.

Those who have read the previous books in the series will know that Bella is Þóra's secretary and the bane of her existence: a rude, crude young woman foisted upon her and her law partner by their landlord. In this scene, taken from early in the book, Þóra and Matthew are heading to Greenland on business and a very hung-up Þóra has just learned that Bella is going with them.
