Arnaldur Indriðason
“It was not like the old days and they both knew it. They were weighed down by the awareness of their failed relationship, of the wasted years, of the feelings that were no more, of the shared life that had unravelled. They were like weary receivers winding up a bankruptcy; all that remained was to tie up the loose ends and settle the final claims." (Black Skies)”
Arnaldur Indriðason, Svörtuloft

“what time is it?its is by every star
a different time,and each most falsely true ...”
E.E. Cummings, Selected Poems

“You spend half your life trying to find out things the village already knows about you when you were born.”
Gudmundur Andri Thorsson, La valse de Valeyri. Histoires enchevêtrées

José Emilio Pacheco
“I keep thinking

That poetry is something else:

A form of love that exists only in silence,

In a secret place between two people,

Almost always between two strangers”
Jose Emilio Pacheco

Arnaldur Indriðason
“Erlendur didn’t believe in premonitions, visions or dreams, nor reincarnation or karma, he didn’t believe in God although he’d often read the Bible, nor in eternal life or that his conduct in this world would affect whether he went to heaven or hell. He felt that life itself offered a mixture of the two.
Then sometimes he experienced this incomprehensible and supernatural de´ja` -vu, experienced time and place as if he’d seen it all before, as if he stepped outside himself, became an onlooker to his own life. There was no way he could explain what it was that
happened or why his mind played tricks on him like this.”
Arnaldur Indriðason, Jar City
