Reykjavik police detective Erdendur's tight hold on the customs and culture of Iceland's historic past have frozen him in time. As he solves murders, the chill of death, the Icelandic cold, and the winter in his own heart combine to remind readers of loss that knows no borders. Erlendur serves as a cautionary tale about standing still, in a blizzard or in life.
