Following the unresolved ending of Strange Shores, the final novel in his Erlendur series, Indridason transports us back in time to the beginning of the detective’s career. A prequel, if you will. Starting out as a traffic officer, patrolling the streets after dark, the darker underbelly of Reykjavik becomes exposed. Away from the drunks, domestic violence and unfortunate road accidents, Erlendur’s innate curiosity is piqued by the strange death of a homeless man and its possible connection to the murder of a young woman. And so Idridason’s famous creation takes his first steps in the world of detection. Read our review here.
