The Draining Lake by Arnaldur Indridason

The Draining Lake by Arnaldur Indridason
2009-09 – Paperback
Picador USA

NEW in paper! If you have not visited Market Block Books on a Wednesday then you have not heard Marggie sing the praises of Indridason’s writing. Code word: Iceland!!!! Yes, that’s all you have to say to get Marggie squealing! She should be hired by the Icelandic Tourism Board for the number of titles she recommends that are set in Iceland. And this is one more of her favorites to tout! But don’t take Marggie’s word for us. Many of our customers have discovered this author on their own. (Shhh! Don’t tell Marggie!) Seriously, one of these days she’ll even get ME to read an Icelandic based book. I’m on the verge!!! What about you? Are you tempted?

    and of course this one has been followed by Arctic Chill- the fifth wonderful mystery by Indridason. He alternates between murders that happen in present day Iceland (Jar City, Voices, and Arctic Chill) and murders that happened in the past but bodies were not discovered until the present time (Silence of the Grave [1940's] and Draining Lake [1970's]).
    Each of these books is more than just a murder mystery. It is a glimpse into the culture and history of Iceland and thus so much more valuable a read than your ordinary thriller.
