We’ve got a giveaway!  You can win one of three copies of the international best-seller The Flatey Enigma.  What is it?  Here’s a quote from the press release to whet your appetite:

[quote]When students sailing from Iceland to study in Copenhagen in 1871 devised a quiz around the text of a famous medieval manuscript to entertain themselves on the journey, they never suspected their unsolved riddle would become the center of a gruesome murder mystery…

So explains Viktor Arnar Ingolfsson in his novel, THE FLATEY ENIGMA. Steeped in the mystery and lore surrounding the Icelandic Book of Flatey, a medieval tome that recorded the histories of the Norse kings, Ingolfsson‘s international bestseller, set in 1960s Iceland, ends each chapter with a clue and answer from the 40 questions making up the puzzle, the so-called “Aenigma Flateyensis.” It is however, the fortieth question and key to the riddle that has never been solved.

An enticing blend of fact and fiction, Ingolfsson’s FLATEY ENIGMA begins with the death of Professor Gaston Lund, a Danish cryptographer who visits the tiny island of Flatey (for which the book is named) to attempt to solve the Aenigma Flateyensis once and for all. When his body is discovered on a deserted island nearby, no one can determine how or why he ended up there.

When another body is uncovered with a Viking symbol carved into its back, Kjartan, a young lawyer from the district magistrate’s office is assigned to investigate. All connections lead back to the riddle of the Book of Flatey. Had Lund solved the puzzle only to perish?[/quote]
