When a skeleton is unearthed at a Reykjavik building site, Inspector Erlendur and his colleagues set out to unravel a complex decades-old crime that may have ties to his own troubled family history. By the author of Jar City. 40,000 first printing.
So much tragedy… You just want to get inside the book and smack the hell out of “one” of the characters. Just remember that!
Chief Inspector Erlendur & CO together with Reykjavik, one of the most depressive urban landscapes ever portrait in Crime Fiction, are once again back. Arnaldur Indriðason tells the story through two parallel plots that seem without connection, but… just read it.
