Icelandic author Jón Kalman Stefánsson received six stars out of six possible in the Danish Jyllands Posten today. The novel, titled Fiskarnir hafa enga fætur (Fish have no feet or Fisk har ingen fødder in Danish) received five stars in Berlingske Tidende. 

The first word in the Jyllands Posten review is, "Mester­værk"(Masterpiece). Jón Kalman Stefánsson was nominated for the Nordic Council literature award for the novel which was published in Iceland in 2013. A Danish translation hit Danish bookstores yesterday.

A new novel by the same author, Eitthvað á stærð við alheiminn( Something similar in size to the universe) was published recently in Iceland. For our Danish readers, the review can be seen here below.
