In this stunning prequel to his critically acclaimed Inspector Erlendur series, Arnaldur Indridason gives devoted fans a glimpse of Erlendur as a young, budding detective.

The beat on the streets in Reykjavík is busy: traffic accidents, theft, domestic violence, contraband … and an unexplained death.

When a tramp Erlendur met regularly on the night shift is found drowned in a ditch, no one seems to care. But his fate haunts Erlendur and drags him inexorably into the strange and dark underworld of the city.

The writer whose work The New York Times describes as “having the sweep and consequence of epic storytelling” has outdone himself in this multilayered and masterful suspense story.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Puts Iceland on the map as a major destination for enthusiasts of Nordic crime fiction.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Keeps readers guessing until the very last pages.”

    Washington Post Book World

  • “Indridason and Stieg Larsson have produced two of the best crime novels of the year.”

    Independent (London)

  • “In this riveting prequel set in late-1960s Reykjavík, Indridason plumbs the backstory of his series lead, somber Inspector Erlendur Sveinsson…His obsession with Hannibal and what happened to him foreshadows the concerns of the more mature Erlendur in books set years later…The investigation slowly but surely gathers powerful, page-turning momentum. This installment stands on its own, but it’s all the more impressive for giving new insight into Erlendur.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Narrator George Guidall is at his very best as he narrates this prequel to the highly regarded mystery series featuring Inspector Erlendur…Guidall captures the kindness and persistence of the young man…Listeners join the police as they experience the humor, sorrow, and terror of day-to-day crime…Guidall captures all the tragedy of Hannibal’s story, so it’s all the more satisfying when his killers are revealed.”
