    Do not miss this one.

    If you have not as yet discovered this Icelandic writer you cannot do better than to start with this the 3rd in a series set in and around Reykjavik, as each book stands alone. Three detectives of the Reykjavik police have to solve the mystery of an old man found in the basement of one of the large Hotels at the height of the Christmas holiday season. All three detectives have problems of their own away from the investigation. This is a series of novels I would rate as high as anything written by Peter Robinson 'see 'Friend of the Devil''.

    Enjoyable

    This was the first book that I had read in the series and I became hooked. I have been a faithful reader of everything that has been translated from Arnaldur Indridason.

    great book!

    This was the first book I read in this series, but it was so good I intend to read them all. It was very well written - interesting plot, good characters. It's great when you can find a mystery that doesn't follow the "bestseller" formula.

    A reviewer

    The grand hotel is loaded with tourists vacationing in Iceland during Christmas. However, the management calls the Reykjavik police to inform them someone murdered their doorman who doubled as Santa Claus. Police inspector Erlendur and Detectives Sigurdur Oli and Elinborg arrive at the crime scene to find in the basement the bludgeoned corpse of Gudlaugur Egilsson a used condom hangs from his penis. As saliva is taken from all the guests and employees, the three cops interview everyone, but no one admits knowing the victim outside of the hotel. The hotel manager confesses that he had just fired Gudlaugur, but had no motive to kill him. Erlendur and his companions soon learn that Gudlaugur was a popular soprano as a young boy so the sleuths turn towards his family, whom he was estranged from after an incident with his father left the older Egilsson wheelchair bound. Erlendur personalizes the case as it reminds him of his own family, but diligently continues seeking the motive that will lead to the killer¿s identity if DNA testing fails to do so. --- This terrific Icelander police procedural combines a strong murder investigation with Erlendur¿s personal crisis as the case is wearing him down. His daughter visits him though everyone assumes she is a hooker he hired, and he considers an affair with a crime scene technician. Readers will appreciate Arnaldur Indridason¿s fabulous whodunit due to predominately Erlendur (see his previous case SILENCE OF THE GRAVE). --- Harriet Klausner

    Disturbing storyline

    I have read this authors other books and thoroughly enjoyed them. But, although I did finish reading this one out of curiosity, the story was highly disturbing and actually gave me nightmares. If you like a mystery where sex and harsh language are the main part of the story, then this one is for you.

    Another winner from Indridason

    I have read each of the three books in the Reykjavik series and am looking forward to starting the 4th - The Draining Lake. You learn a lot about what it feels to live in this remote interesting country. Very enjoyable.

    Random song that voices my opinion of rping

    (Put to any slow sad tune you want)Im tired of being in the background. The backup that is never. I called on. Im tired of only having one friend! Why cant we all be equal. I wish i were important. Wush i was heard. Im tired of beeing seen and never heard. Im just in the background. A place people dont look. Im just the backup that no one cares about. Im seen and not heard. They see me and dont care. I wish they cared. Cause i could be somebody. I could have importance. But no. Im just there. They see me and dont care. Im just the background. The unwanted backup. The odd man out. They get used me. Being there. But they just care. Ohhhhh. They see there they just care. Just dont care. ....... dont care. Cause im the background, the backup, the odd man out. Im seen not heard not a single word. They see me and dont care....... (Hope you enjoyed it....... not)

    The ending was unexpected.

    The story line led you in another direction and then zapped you with an unexpected ending.
