Silence of the GraveWinner of the CWA Golden Dagger Award
Translated from the Icelandic by Bernard Scudder
Praise for Indridason's previous novel featuring Inspector Erlendur Sveinsson, Jar City
"Classic mystery fiction, both compassionate and thrilling. Indridason is about to become one of the brightest stars in the genre's dark skies."
- John Connolly, author of Dark Hollow
"A great crime novel . . . excellent."
- The Baltimore Sun
"Riveting. Look for Indridason to appear on critics' shortlists for best new author, best mystery novel, and so forth."
"Fans of mystery in general and Henning Mankell and Karin Fossum can only exult."
- Library Journal (starred review)
"No wonder Arnaldur Indridason won so many awards. He's a great storyteller, and American readers will overwhelmingly agree."
- C. J. Box, Anthony Award-winning author of Out of Range
"Reminiscent of Simenon."
- Reginald Hill, author of Dialogues of the Dead
"Gripping. . . . There is a Ross Macdonald element to all this . . . recalls Madeleine Nabb and Donna Leon."
