The crime thriller is not nearly as interesting as the later genealogy discussions of Iceland, although it was refreshing to read a genre novel from an author/country I've never read before. Kudos to Iceland, but as a detective story, not a standout.
Dark and grim like the autumnal October rain falling relentlessly on the poor souls that try to live their life as best they can...But maladies, evil and life's cruel surprises await them
Masterfully written and narrated. It will give you just the tiniest ray of hope in the finale.
What would have made Jar City better?
Different narrator more suited to the nature of the book.
Would you ever listen to anything by Arnaldur Indridason again?
Not with same narrator.
Would you be willing to try another one of Saul Reichlin’s performances?
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
Can't go on with it.... narrator tone and voices all wrong

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
No, i think I would be concerned that they might find the narrator too irritating
What was one of the most memorable moments of Jar City?
When they are digging up the floor in the apartment, it was well described and you could imagine how unpleasant it would have been
How did the narrator detract from the book?
His different voices for different characters were weird and his "female" voices in particular were dreadful. When he couched the main character's daughter it was very unconvincing and nearly ruined the whole audio book.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
You won't look at the old man living next door the same way again.
