Arnaldur Indridason worked for many years as a journalist and critic before writing novels. Outside Iceland, he is best known for his crime novels featuring Erlendur and Sigurdur Oli, which are consistent bestsellers. The series has won numerous awards, including the Nordic Glass Key, and the CWA Gold Dagger for Silence of the Grave.



This is my first Indridason book, although he's quite renowned. I wasn't sure what to expect, and the opening chapters are a bit grim, almost "grimy" feeling. However, the story grew on me, and I got quite invested in Konrád and the other characters.

In addition to bring a crime thriller, on another level this story is a tableau of Iceland the way it IS... not the way we might romanticize it as tourists. Really insightful - recommend! I will now seek out other works by Indridason.

Thankful to Netgalley and the publisher (Minotaur) for the ARC!… (lisätietoja)

During the Christmas rush, the Santa at a grand Reykjavik hotel is stabbed, and there is no dearth of suspects. Inspector Erlender must deal with his difficult daughter, pursue a possible love interest, and untangle a long-bureid web of malice and greed to find the murderer.

This story focused on relationships between fathers and their sons and daughters. It was well-written and had some very touching moments. In between, there was an interesting police procedural. This was another enjoyable entry in this series.… (lisätietoja)

Interesting prequel to the popular Inspector Erlendur series. The young policeman investigates two murders on his own time and wins th interest of the highest-up.
The story is good, has a few of the classic breaking the fourth wall inside jokes, but overall is not as taut as other works by this author. Enjoyable read for a winter's night...

Fascinating for the view of Iceland and the struggles it, too, is having with new immigrants and prejudice.
Not to be read late at night as the names of characters take some getting used to for the non-Nordic. As seems common with Nordic thrillers, bureaucracy plays a heavy role here.
Enjoying getting to know this writer!
