A look at books: Ireland’s recession, sci-fi adventure and Copenhagen

This is the third and most distinctive book to date in his planned Copenhagen quartet, and it’s a stand alone entry for anyone approaching this remarkable author, whose Joycean celebration of the city takes in its cobblestoned streets, its distinctive art and architecture, and the “treacherous blue eyed people, those blond liars,” who inhabit the place.

For Kerrigan, an American ex-pat fleeing a disastrous relationship, the fabled home of Hamlet is a provocative place to fetch up and soon enough the city and its inhabits are restoring his shattered faith in a tale that’s as quietly rapturous as a glass of the Akvavit they serve in the local pubs.

Bloomsbury, $26.95.
