Another terrific mystery from Iceland

This is terrific writing, with a lot of depth and pathos and some humor. It is hard to stop reading this series!

Faldu44 ,

The series is a novel in itself with Erlendur at its center

I began with Jar City and was enthralled by the murder mystery itself, but when I read the second novel, Silence of the Grave, I was hooked on the characters of Ernaldur, the lonely detective, and his tragic and dysfunctional daughter Eva Lind. Each novel reveals more of Erlandur's past and contributes to our understanding of how he could have been so uncaring of his children after his divorce. In Voices we are taken further in his story and in the relationship he has with his daughter. And throughout all of the stories it is the scars of family life and upbringing that precipitate the tragedies of the crimes.

Sounds dark and depressing? Not at all. The writing carries you along in these most human of stories, lessons on life, with tales that surprise. Magic! Start with Jar City, and you'll be hooked.
