Inspector Erlendur returns in this gripping Icelandic thriller When a skeleton is discovered half-buried in a construction site outside of ReykjavIk, Inspector Erlendur finds himself knee-deep in both a crime scene and an archeological dig. Bone by bone, the body is unearthed, and the brutalizing history of a family who lived near the building site comes to light along with it. Was the skeleton a man or a woman, a victim or a killer, and is this a simple case of murder or a long-concealed act of justice? As Erlendur tries to crack this cold case, he must also save his drug-addicted daughter from self destruction and somehow glue his hopelessly fractured family back together. Like the chilly Nordic mysteries of Henning Mankell and Karen Fossum, Arnaldur Indridason delivers a stark police procedural full of humanity and pathos, a classic noir from a very cold place.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A writer of astonishing gravitas and talent.”

    John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author

  • “George Guidall makes everything he narrates better, and his performance of the Inspector Erlander Icelandic mysteries is no exception. A gravelly voice for Erlander exposes his loneliness and melancholy…Guidall noticeably slows down the pacing for the scenes of domestic abuse, amping up the suspense and conveying the terror of the next battering blow.”
