Listing Detail Tabs

You’re bidding on a first class Icelandic crime novel – perfect for avid readers of Police procedural thrillers and Scandinavian Crime novels.

Erlendur, the usual protagonist of this series, has taken an abrupt leave of absence (an absence that comes to have increasingly sinister overtones), leaving his colleague Elinborg to take charge when a murdered body is found in an apartment in Reykjavik. In a chilling first chapter a man meets a young woman in a bar and takes her home, with lethal consequences.

The main framework of the novel describes Elinborg's painstaking investigation, as she uncovers every tiny detail of the victim's life, as well as that of any possible witness, however eccentric or tangential.

This is a fascinating and suspenseful story with plenty of false leads and layers of possible solutions. It’s a “read once” hardback in excellent condition. The photo shows the actual book you're bidding on.
