Jar City by Arnaldur Indriðason
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Another great Icelandic story touches on the homogeneous nature of this society.The story is pervaded by unrelenting rain and Erlendur’s obsession with the past and those who are lost.
Jar City mixes Erlendur’s troubled past with the death of a loner in his flat. This is a journey that started a long time before the crime. Great a pace as the story weaves its way across the rain swept roads of Iceland.
One of my shorter reviews, but I don’t want to give the story away. I look forward to the next one in the series.
