Description

One girl missing. Another found dead. Only one detective can solve this case.

'One of the greats of modern crime fiction' Sunday Times

When a young woman known for drug smuggling goes missing, her elderly grandparents have no choice but to call the retired Detective Konrád.

Still looking for his own father's murderer, Konrád agrees to investigate the case.

But digging into the past reveals more than he set out to discover, and a strange connection to a little girl who drowned in the Reykjavík city pond decades ago recaptures everyone's attention.

A brilliant, chilling tale of broken dreams and children who have nowhere to turn.

'The undisputed king of the Icelandic thriller' Guardian

'An international literary phenomenon - and it's easy to see why. His novels are gripping, authentic, haunting and lyrical' Harlan Coben

Reviews

The second novel in Arnaldur Indridason's intriguing new series, The Girl by the Bridge...is as darkly brilliant as anything he has written--Sunday Times

Short, crisply written chapters move the action briskly along while keeping all the seemingly disparate pieces of the puzzle in the mix. Veteran Indridason weaves all these eerie elements together masterfully. Superb crime fiction from an acclaimed virtuoso.--Kirkus Starred review
