Arnaldur Indridason worked for many years as a journalist and
critic before he began writing novels. His books have since sold
over 13 million copies worldwide. Outside Iceland, he is best known
for his crime novels featuring Erlendur and Sigurdur li, which are
consistent bestsellers across Europe. The series has won numerous
awards, including the Nordic Glass Key and the CWA Gold Dagger.
The Shadow District - the first book in the Reykjavik Wartime Mystery series - won the Premio RBA de Novela Negra, the world's most lucrative crime fiction prize.
The second novel in Arnaldur Indridason's intriguing new series,
The Girl by the Bridge...is as darkly brilliant as anything he has
Short, crisply written chapters move the action briskly along while keeping all the seemingly disparate pieces of the puzzle in the mix. Veteran Indridason weaves all these eerie elements together masterfully. Superb crime fiction from an acclaimed virtuoso.
