An enjoyable debut. The lead detective, Erlendur, comes from the same school as Harry Bosch or Harry Hole and pursues his singular path of investigation with his colleagues trailing in his wake. The glimpses into his private life may not be integral to the storyline but add to the development of his character. Some of the intuitive leaps he makes seem to stretch the bounds of credibility and seem unlikely that in real life an investigation could ever follow the same course. Having said that there are enough twists and turns to make this a passable whodunnit.
