Was zunächst aussieht wie ein typisch isländischer Mord schäbig sinnlos und schlampig ausgeführt erweist sich als überaus schwieriger Fall für Er. I am HIMThis cryptic message is left with the body of an elderly man when he is found dead in his apartment in Reykjavik So begins Arnaldur Indridason s brilliant contribution to the Nordic Noir sub genre of crime literature First published in 2000 in Iceland under the title M rin I read and thoroughly enjoyed the English translation by Bernard Scudder published in 2005 by Minotaur BooksA compelling police procedural that shows a law enforcement task force in Reykjavik investigating a murder Indridason goes further and provides intriguing background for a crime that has a long history of wrongs leading up to the fateful momentSome crimes when brought into the light reveal other wrongdoings hidden in the shadows Some secrets when uncovered reveal hidden pains that can reach far back into families Indridason s greatest achievement in this book is his ability to draw diverse elements of a criminal investigation especially the human costs into a cognizant wholeJar City is the name given to a forensic collection of body parts and specimens and this novel also explores the importance and historic relevance of genetic testing and how these procedures have evolved and how the Icelandic culture is particularly well suited for such scienceOne of the better contributions to the genre very entertaining

Lendur von der Kripo Reykjavík Wer ist der tote alte Mann in der Souterrainwohnung in Nordermoor Warum hinterlässt der Mörder eine Nachricht bei sei. 910 Sualid pointless and committed without any attempt to hide it change the clues or conceal the evidenceYes said Erlendur A pathetic Icelandic murder First impressions can be misleading At first glance the murder of a lonely seventy year old man in his own apartment is just a sordid simple robbery gone wrong But as Inspector Erlendur Sveinsson of the Reykjavik Criminal Investigations Division starts to poke into the past history of the deceased the case gets darker and darker with unsavory ramifications going back decades and with revelations about Holberg the victim that makes one wonder why didn t somebody put an end to his miserable life much soonerNordic crime fiction is already famous for its dark undertones and its dour policemen but this novel is in a class of its own when it comes to depression Erlendur got back to the block of flats where he lived at around 10 pm and put a ready meal in the microwave to heat through He stood and watched the meal revolving behind the glass Better than television he thought Outside the autumn winds howled nothing but rain and darkness Not only is Erlendur divorced most cops are and unhealthy heart problems but he has a drug addict son coming out for the third time from a stint in rehab and a rebellious teenage daughter knocked up by a stranger at a party Erlendur has every reason to be depressed but also in the best Nordic tradition he is doggedly doing his job leaving no stone unturned even if it means looking at hundreds of hours worth of hardcore pornography wading in basements filled with ordure or digging up the coffins of small children who died decades earlier They saw a tired middle aged man with dark lines under the eyes several days stubble on his cheeks thick eyebrows that stuck out his bushy ginger hair that was all in a tangle strong teeth that sometimes showed behind pallid lips a weary expression that had witnessed all the worst dregs of human filth Erlendur reminds me in the best possible way of Martin Beck the protagonist of the Swedish Story of Crime by Per Wahloo and Maj Sjoberg He may appear dour and depressive to outsiders but inside he is raging against the injustices done to innocents I can see myself easily continuing with this series by Arnaldur Indridason based on how much I was moved by this first lecture although this is apparently the third in the series You think it won t affect you You reckon you re strong enough to withstand that sort of thing You think you can put on armour against it over the years and can watch all the filth from a distance as if it s none of your business and try to keep your senses But there isn t any distance And there s no armour No one s strong enough The repulsion haunts you like an evil spirit that burrows into your mind and doesn t leave you in peace until you believe that the filth is life itself because you ve forgotten how ordinary people live This case is like that Like an evil spirit that s been unleashed to run riot in your mind and ends up leaving you crippledErlendur heaved a deep sigh It s all one great big bloody mire I ve been vague on purpose about the finer points of the investigation I would like to mention though in light of the current shitstorm in the media about predatory males that statutory rape is one of the major issues in this particular investigation Did she get over itNever She was a very sensitive woman my sister A beautiful soul and easy prey for anyone to harm They sensed that both of them They attacked her in their own separate ways Savaged their prey The beasts also the title is not a reference to an American military base in Iceland as I was led to believe I m not sure where I got this impression from but it s about privacy concerns regarding a national genetic database that records the medical history of every person living or dead from Iceland It s also about corrupt policemen and callous doctors who are concerned with their specimen collections than with the dramas in the lives of their patients That s one of the problems with this kind of genealogy database Diseases tend to jump out of the family tree at random and then pop up again when you least expected themAnd you keep all these secrets Old family secrets Tragedies sorrows and death all carefully classified in computers Family stories and stories of individuals Stories about me and you You keep the whole secret and can call it up whenever you want A Jar City for the whole nation

Nem Opfer die niemand versteht Während schwere Islandtiefs sich über der Insel im Nordatlantik austoben wird eine weitere Leiche in Nordermoor gefund. Rating 3 bleak of fiveIt s hard for me to believe this is a debut novel The author is of course a journalist and so the possessor of writerly skills still a novel is something wholly and entirely other than what he could be expected to do in his sleepI think the first novel ishness comes out in a few small ways He introduces a deeply disturbing sub plot and does almost nothing with it He has characters behave in some ways that don t scan with their stated behaviors But on the whole the book s as accomplished a noir as I ve seen in many a long monthI came away from this book chilled angry and annoyed at the unfairess of life Perfect noir I see that the author carefully crafted his story to elicit these feelings in me and I salute his success I am aware that the story was for 2000 uite ground breaking in its use of genetics as a plot point but it doesn t feel as amazing today when Scientific Adam and Scientific Eve have been genetically identified Still I was impressed by the good handling of the subject matterI wish it had been given a little prominence in the story but that s a minor cavilIf you haven t yet read the book I d say you should because its dark gloomy pleasures are significally rewarding I warn the sueamish Violence exists here and a lot of uccchy stuff that s not violent but is revolting takes place

    I've taken an interest to Iceland ever since I read Halldór Laxness Seeing there are a few Icelandic authors in translation or maybe they are indeed just a few I wanted to explore this country through the detective novels of Arnaldur Indriðason as well Luckily he gives some interesting insights into the social aspect of Icelandi

    Having very recently read Reykjavík Nights Murder in Reykjavík which was a preuel that I really enjoyed I was really looking forward to this book which is the first in the series proper I should say the first to be translated into English because it is actually book 3 in Iceland Which is too bad because there are relationships which pres
