Publisher's Summary

It is a few years after Reykjavik Nights closed. Erlendur is now a detective working for the shadowy Marion Briem and is already divorced.
It is 1979. A body of a man has been found in the blue lagoon, which has not yet become the tourist spot it is today. Apparently the victim fell from a great height, and at first the police investigate the possibility that he has been thrown out of an airplane. As soon as they find out who he is - an engineer employed at the American base in Kaflavik - their focus shifts to the base and his work there, related to mysterious flights of classified planes between Greenland and Iceland.
The authorities at the base are not willing to collaborate; in fact they do everything in their power to hinder the Icelandic police. Fully aware of the danger they are running, Erlendur and Marion continue investigating with the help of an officer from the base. In parallel, Erlendur is asked to investigate the cold case of a young girl vanished into thin air on her way to school 40 years earlier.

Love this Series

I am not sure why I love this series. It could be the personality of our character or the personality of Iceland. Both survive basically inhospitable landscapes.

This entry in the series is very informative about the history of American military involvement in Iceland and problems between them and the locals.

This is an early period in Erlandur's life, not long after his divorce and estrangement from his daughter who was then in elementary school.

I love George Guidall. He could read the phone book and I would enjoy it!

very unique detective stories

I like these mysteries. The characters are not like any others I know. it makes for very entertaining conversations because some are very blunt. the stories are excellent. some folks might find the conversations tedious, but I love them.
