This is the first installment of a new-to-me series.  I can't wait to read more!  Inspector Jimmy Perez is a quiet, perceptive, and observant man.

The isolated Shetland Islands are atmospheric.  Living in a remote setting, the community knows everything about everybody--kind of claustrophobic in a neighborly way.

I didn't figure it out.

From the publisher:
Inspector Jimmy Perez, is a very private and perceptive man whose bailiwick is a remote hamlet in the Shetland Islands. It is a cold January morning, and Shetland lies beneath a deep layer of snow. Trudging home, Fran Hunter's eye is drawn to a splash of color on the frozen ground, ravens circling above. It is the strangled body of her teenage neighbor, Catherine Ross. The locals on the quiet island stubbornly focus their gaze on one man - loner and simpleton Magnus Tait. But when detective Jimmy Perez and his colleagues from the mainland insist on opening out the investigation, a veil of suspicion and fear is thrown over the entire community. For the first time in years, Catherine's neighbors nervously lock their doors while a killer lives on in their midst.
