Silence of the Grave


Silence of the Grave Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Building work in an expanding Reykjavik uncovers a shallow grave. Years before, this part of the city was all open hills, and Erlendur and his team hope this is a typical Icelandic missing person scenario; perhaps someone once lost in the snow, who has lain peacefully buried for decades. Things are never that simple.

About the Author

Arnaldur Indridason worked for many years as a journalist and critic before he began writing novels. He has published several thrillers, but it is for his Reykjavík Murder Mysteries the series featuring Erlendur and Sigurdur Óli that he is best known outside his native Iceland. He has won the Glass Key for best Nordic crime novel (both for Tainted Blood and for Silence of the Grave) and the Martin Beck Award for best crime novel translated into Swedish (for The Voice). In 2005, Silence of the Grave was awarded the coveted CWA Gold Dagger for best crime novel, an accolade shared with Minette Walters, Reginald Hill, John le Carré and fellow Nordic crime writer Henning Mankell.
