Hay que reconocer que la portada llama la atención, si bien ni portada ni titulo se parecen ni en el blanco del ojo, a los originales. Y es que tras este titulo, tremendamente explicativo, nos encontramos con una un thriller policial situado en Islandia y que tiene que ver con un anillo milenario y de maldad latente, que un tal Isildur llevó a Islandia y que renuncio a deshacerse de él en un volcán cercano a su granja y trata de una saga nórdica oculta hasta ahora que cuenta dicha historia y a la que Tolkien tuvo acceso en su día.

Todo esto, lógicamente por el bien de la historia que el autor quiere contar, no porque tenga mucha similitud con la realidad del origen de “El Señor de los Anillos”. El caso es que tenemos a un detective de la policía de Boston, de origen Islandés, que por ciertos motivos, tiene que pasar una temporada en Islandia. Allí ayudará a la policía a esclarecer un asesinato relacionado con el anillo de marras.

Reykjav’k, Iceland

Está bien sin mas. Se deja leer a gusto por el asunto de Tolkien, por que en la trama aparecen un par de entusiastas de “El Señor de los Anillos” que buscan hacerse con la Saga de Gurkur original que ha aparecido tras varios siglos oculta, y también por el asunto de leer un poco de Islandia. Pero nada mas. No creo que siga con el resto de libros del detective Magnus Ragnarson en Islandia, y eso que en inglés van 4 libros.
