The loner Erlendur has recently joined the police force as a young officer and is immediately drawn into the blackness of Reykjavik's underworld.

Erlendur has recently joined the police force as a young officer and immediately sinks into the darkness of Reykjavik's underworld. Working nights, he discovers the city is full of car crashes, robberies, drinkers and fighters. And sometimes an unexplained death.

A homeless man Erlendur knows is found drowned. But few people care. Or when a young woman on her way home from a club vanishes. Both cases go cold.

Two lost people from two different worlds. Erlendur is not an investigator, but his instincts tell him their fates are worth pursuing. How could they be linked?

Inexorably, he is drawn into the blackness of the city's underbelly, where everyone is in the dark or on the run.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great intro the series Really enjoyed this first novel in the series where Erlendur is still young and working in the traffic sector and doing detective work on his own time. Highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An interesting mystery I ended up enjoying this story. Erlendur is a young cop going about his own business. In the course of his duties, he befriends a homeless man and, when he dies in a drowning, begins to investigate. This book starts slow but as the story moves along, I realized that the reader is slowly getting to know how this man thinks and works. We're being introduced to a young man who hasn't quite found his path in life. This appears to be a character-driven series. This sort of series gets better as it goes on. I'm looking forward to reading more of this series. This was a good mystery, the people grew and the ending was satisfactory. A good start for a new series.
