Publisher's Summary

One cold autumn night, a woman is found hanging from a beam at her holiday cottage. At first sight, it appears like a straightforward case of suicide; María had never recovered from the death of her mother two years previously and she had a history of depression.
But then the friend who found her body approaches Detective Erlendur with a tape of a séance that María attended before her death and his curiosity is aroused. Driven by a need to find answers, Erlendur begins an unofficial investigation into María's death. But he is also haunted by another unsolved mystery - the disappearance of two young people 30 years ago - and by his own quest to find the body of his brother, who died in a blizzard when he was a boy. Hypothermia is Indridason's most compelling novel yet.

Chilling. What else?

Let the gloomy world of Idridason chill you. Life can be bleak, it seems. Thankfully, we have good books and terrific readers. Like this one.

A gripping tale

An unusual layout to a novel. Not an intense listen but a story that was interesting and curious. I enjoyed it very much. The setting of Iceland is atmoapheric and I enjoyed hearing the Icelandic names of the places. The narrator is good.

The crime thriller I am after

Awesomely subtle crime thriller very much grounded in character and place. All comes together satisfyingly with every clue important. Narrator did a great job too beautiful voice.
