9780099542216: The Draining Lake (Reykjavik Murder Mysteries 4)

A REYKJAVIK MURDER MYSTERY.

A skeleton is found half-buried in a dried out lake. The bones have been weighed down with an old radio transmitter: is this a clue to the victim, and the killer's identity?

Detective Erlendur is called in to investigate and discovers that there may be a connection with a group of students who were sent to study in East Germany during the Cold War, and with a young man who walked out of his family home one day, never to return.

As the mystery deepens, Erlendur and his team must unravel a story of international espionage, murder and betrayal.

Review:

"A haunting, compassionate work" ( Observer)

" Indridason manages to keep the reader guessing about the identity of both killer and victim right to the last" ( Sunday Express)

"An absorbing story which confirms Indridason's place among the leading writers of Nordic crime fiction" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"Beautifully written and translated, the novel has both a strong sense of place and themes that transcend it; it confirms Indridason as one of those crime writers who rises above genre, combining suspense with moving insights into the human condition" ( Sunday Times)

"Indridason pieces together a convincing plot, while exploring universal issues of political idealism and shattered dreams" ( Daily Mirror)

Review:

`the story soon has you caught in it icy grip. And the scenery is spectacular'
