    Outrage

    At the outset of this book by Icelandic author Indridason, the eighth in the series available in English translation, a young man picks up a woman in a bar, slips some rohypnol into her drink and brings her back to his home in an historic area of Reykjavik. When two days later the police are called to the scene, the body found lying in a pool of blood on the floor is not that of the woman, but the young man who lived there, his throat having been slashed. The only clues are a woman’s shawl, and a strange smell that lingers in the air.

    In this latest entry in the series, Detective Elinborg has the primary role, while her colleagues Erlendur and Sigurdur Oli take on lesser roles, the former only by reference in the early and late parts of the book [referred to as “a failure of a father,” an “irascible loner,” and “an insightful detective” whom Elinborg admires but does not necessarily like]. As the book opens he has apparently taken a leave of absence to travel to the East Fjords, where he had lived as a young boy. Oli has only a secondary role in the present investigations, with Elinborg taking the lead.

    As always, Elinborg has conflicts between her job and her role as a wife and mother, and worries that she is not devoting enough time to her family. The older of her two sons, 16 years old and increasingly distant, has been a cause of concern lately, and she “sometimes worried about the relationships between parents and their children,” a theme which recurs throughout the book. In the course of her investigation, Elinborg is drawn into an old case, one involving the disappearance of a 19-year-old girl six years prior, and the possibility that the two cases are tied together.

    Having been steadily absorbing reading for more than the first half of the book, it suddenly becomes more intriguing as the plot turns more complex, and maintains that level till the denouement. This is a powerful book, consistent with all this author’s prior work, and highly recommended.

    Highly recommend

    I'm reading all of Arnaldur Indridason's mysteries. Do yourself a favor....if you like the excitement, the unusual....don't miss any of his books. After you read one, you'll be hooked.

    NOT QUITE UP TO USUAL STANDARD

    I have read all books by this author but feel cheated this time. I felt he wrote this while on autopilot..followed his formula to the letter only Elinborg was in charge. The story is dark, as usual, we do get to know Elinborg a tad better, and we get a fine lecture on why rape needs to be prosecuted more like a premeditated attempted murder at the least..the solution was creative!

    Really hooked onhis writing, although the translator seemed to have changed, the story itself is well worth the read.
