Inspector Erlunder has spent his career evading the phantoms of
his past, and now he finds himself twice haunted—first at a séance attended by
the victim of a suspicious suicide and again by the puzzle of two young people
who went missing thirty years ago. There’s also the ghost of the
detective’s disastrous marriage—which, despite the pleas of his drug-addled
daughter, Erlendur refuses to confront. And there’s his lingering obsession
with the case of his beloved younger brother, who vanished without a trace when
they were boys. Erlendur can run from his ghosts for only so long, and when
they finally catch up with him, he is forced to face the devastating truth of
his tormented past.
A brilliant novel of
suspense from Iceland’s frigid shores, Hypothermia is
Scandinavian crime fiction at its best.
