Inspector Erlendur Sveinsson heads up the investigation into the killing of a solitary man, found murdered in his Reykjavik apartment, only to discover that the victim has only two friends, one in prison and one missing for twenty-five years, and that the dead man had been accused but not convicted of a rape forty years earlier.

Also known as “Tainted Blood”, this is one of those books you come across, start reading and when finishing it, you go something like: “that’s a great surprise, let’s try another one”.

Iceland with its razor-sharp climate and depressive long winter darkness, a down-to-earth chief inspector and an attractive mystery… that’s what “Jar City” is all about. Perhaps the end is visible, doesn’t really matter because the book as a whole compensates for it.

Really good European Crime Fiction.
