Downtrodden detective Erlendur and his team must once again investigate Reykjavik's hidden past to unravel a case of human nastiness. Alive with tension and atmosphere and disturbingly real, this is an outstanding continuation of the Reykjavik Murder Mysteries.

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. Whilst Erlendur struggles to hold together the crumbling fragments of his own family, his case unearths many other tales of family pain.

The hills have more than one tragic story to tell: tales of failed relationships and heartbreak; of anger, domestic violence and fear; of family loyalty and family shame.

Few people are still alive who can tell the story, but even secrets taken to the grave cannot remain hidden forever.

Industry Reviews

"Here is a new voice that demands to be listened to" -- Reginald Hill "A writer worth seeking out'" Sunday Telegraph "One of the most brilliant crime writers of his generation" Sunday Times "Inspector Erlendur is one of the most compassionate detectives to come this way in a long time" New York Times
