  • "What is it with those Scandinavians? For many years they have been producing crime novels of the most chilling and engrossing nature. However, one man stands out for his sense of highly believable drama, suspense and an almost effortlessly simple, yet captivating delivery. He is Arnaldur Indridason... one of the brightest sparks on the international crime writing circuit ****"

    Mirror
  • "An utterly absorbing detective story. In Erlendur - morose, grouchy, but hugely likeable all the same - Indridason has created a character in the Morse/Rebus mould who could stand comparison with either"

    Scotsman
  • "Trenchantly written...stripped-down, sinewy prose"

    Independent
  • "Indridason is as interested in exploring the personalities and the relationships between them as he is in unravelling the mystery...a rounded, suprerior example of the genre"

    Sunday Telegraph
  • "Its humanity and insight make it truly memorable"
