Publisher Comments:

Arnaldur Indridason took the international crime fiction scene by storm after winning England's CWA Gold Dagger Award for Silence of the Grave. Now, with the highly anticipated Voices, this world-class sensation treats American readers to another extraordinary Inspector Erlendur Sveinsson thriller.

 

The Christmas rush is at its peak in a grand Reykjavík hotel when Inspector Erlendur Sveinsson is called in to investigate a murder. The hotel Santa has been stabbed, and Erlendur and his detective colleagues have no shortage of suspects between hotel staff and the international travelers staying for the holidays.

 

But then a shocking secret surfaces. As Christmas Day approaches, Erlendur must deal with his difficult daughter, pursue a possible romantic interest, and untangle a long-buried web of malice and greed to find the murderer.

 

One of Indridason's most accomplished works to date, Voices is sure to win him a multitude of new American suspense fans.

Synopsis:

“No one can thoroughly chill the blood the way Karin Fossum can.” —Los Angeles Times

Eva Magnus and her daughter are out walking by the river when a man’s body floats to the water’s surface. Eva goes to call the police, but when she reaches the phone, she dials another number altogether.

The police find the body anyway. Inspector Sejer and his team quickly determine that the man, Egil, died in a violent attack. But Egil has been missing for months and the trail to his killer is cold. It’s as puzzling as another unsolved case on Sejer’s desk: the murder of a prostitute, found dead just before Egil went missing. Sejer sets to work piecing together these two impossible cases; it's not long before he realizes that they aren’t as separate as they previously seemed.

Arnaldur Indridason was born in 1961. He worked at an Icelandic newspaper, first as a journalist and then for many years as a film reviewer.

This is a story about the murder of Santa Claus, a failed child singing prodigy known as "the Little Princess"; Santa lived in a spare room in the basement of a Reykjavik hotel. This is NOT a book for children, nor even for Sociology majors who still believe in Santa. It is an intricately plotted tale about non-traditional behaviors in an affluent society, which Iceland was when Indridason wrote the book. As in his other mysteries, justice of a sort is done by the end of the story, but it is not a neat and tidy result.
