    DescriptionA man is found murdered in his Reykjavik flat. There are no obvious clues apart from a cryptic note left on the body and a photograph of a young girl's grave. Delving into the dead man's life Detective Erlendur discovers that forty years ago he was accused of an appalling crime, but never convicted. Had his past come back to haunt him? As Erlendur struggles to build a relationship with his unhappy daughter, his investigation takes him to Iceland's Genetic Research Centre, where he uncovers disturbing secrets that are even darker than the murder of an old man. Jar City is the first book in the series starring Detective Erlendur available in English.

    Review quote
    "A chilling read" The Times "Highly recommended...thoroughly gripping...impressively moving" Time Out "A chilling Icelandic saga of the DNA age. This careful, sparsely-written book operates at a deeper level than most crime fiction" Independent
