LONGLISTED FOR THE CWA INTERNATIONAL DAGGER 2018

The first instalment in the thrilling new crime series from worldwide bestseller Arnaldur Indridason

THE PAST

In wartime Reykjavik, a young woman is found strangled in a dangerous area known as ‘the shadow district’. An Icelandic detective and a member of the American military police are on the trail of a brutal killer.

THE PRESENT

An elderly man is discovered dead on his bed, smothered with his own pillow. Konrad, a retired detective, finds old newspaper cuttings in the man’s home reporting the shadow district murder. It’s a crime Konrad remembers, having grown up in the same neighbourhood.

A MISSING LINK

Why, after all this time, would an old crime resurface? How are these events connected across the decades? And will Konrad’s link to the past help him solve the case and finally lay the ghosts of wartime Reykjavik to rest?
