Publisher's Summary

The loner, Erlendur, has recently joined the police force as a young officer. The beat on the streets in ReykjavIk is busy: traffic accidents, theft, domestic violence, contraband.... And an unexplained death. When a tramp he 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.

Brings Back Memories of Reykjavik

I have only had a problem with one of Indridason's stories, but this is not the one. It is another great who-dun-it with loads of twists and turns in the plot. Just when you are convinced who the killer is, another clue points you in the opposite direction. If you want to listen to a mystery by a non-US author this is a great choice. The narration is steady and keeps you interested. Try it you will like it.

Slow Yet... Sort of Hypnotizing

I didn't care much about the protagonist in this Indridason story, but I'm not sure that the author did much either. Rather he uses him as a blunt, plodding tool... An irresistible force to unravel a quiet little tale of violence. It's a procedural thing set in a place and just - a tad - different culture that tugged me on through this puzzle. Yep, it is well done and George Guidall as always creates a cast I'll remember.
