9781250077349: Into Oblivion: An Icelandic Thriller (An Inspector Erlendur Series)

Loyal readers of Arnaldur Indridason's Erlendur series will be thrilled by Into Oblivion, the mesmerizing follow-up to the gritty prequel Reykjavik Nights. Here devoted fans will get another glimpse of Erlendur in his early days as a young, budding detective, while also absorbing plenty about Iceland and what makes the place tick.

It’s 1979. A woman swims in a remote, milky-blue lagoon. Steam rises from the water and as it clears, a body is revealed in the ghostly light. Miles away, a vast aircraft hangar rises behind the perimeter fence of the US military base. A sickening thud is heard as a man’s body falls from a high platform.

Many years before, a schoolgirl went missing, and the world has forgotten her. But Erlendur has not. Erlendur is a newly promoted detective, and he is contending with a battered dead body, a rogue CIA operative, and America’s troublesome presence in Iceland. In his spare time he investigates a cold case. He is only starting out, but he is already deeply involved in his work.

The writer whose work The New York Times describes as "having the sweep and consequence of epic storytelling," has outdone himself in this multi-layered and masterful novel of suspense.

Review:

"Indridason is a master at weaving big-picture commentary into taut, realistic police procedurals, and he scores another victory with this examination of the Cold War’s impact in Iceland." --Booklist on Into Oblivion

“Will thrill fans.” ―Library Journal

“What's Icelandic for ‘we have ourselves a winner?” ―Newsday

“Puts Iceland on the map as a major destination for enthusiasts of Nordic crime fiction.” ―Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

“Keeps readers guessing until the very last pages.” ―Washington Post Book World

“Indridason and Stieg Larsson have produced two of the best crime novels of the year.” ―The Independent (UK)

“Every one of these writers is good [Hakan Nesser, Kjell Eriksson, Karin Fossum], but in my book, Arnaldur Indridason is even better.” ―Joe Queenan, Los Angeles Times

“Another haunting mystery from the Gold Dagger Award winner, whose work transcends genre.” ―Kirkus Reviews on Hypothermia

“Fans of old-school sleuthing and new-school crime thrillers alike will relish this terrific read with its modern heroine but old-fashioned, meticulous approach.” ―Library Journal on Outrage
