An international sensation, published in over twenty five
countries around the world, Arnaldur Indridason attained
instant fame in the English-speaking mystery world after
winning the Gold Dagger Award for Silence of the Grave. His
other crime novels in the series, Jar City and Voices, have
also been published to highest acclaimâ€”U.S. readers who have
already discovered this extraordinary writer are eagerly
anticipating this latest Inspector Erlendur Sveinsson thriller.
Following an earthquake, the water level of an Icelandic
lake suddenly falls, revealing a skeleton that is weighed
down by a heavy radio device bearing inscriptions in
Russian. Inspectors Erlendur, Elinborg, and Sigurdur Oliâ€™s
investigation takes them back to the Cold War era, when
bright, left-wing students in Iceland were sent to study in
the â€śheavenly stateâ€ť of Communist East Germany.
But one of the students went missing, and her friends
suspected that her â€śheavenly stateâ€ť was all too real.
Erlendur follows a long cold trail that leads back to
Iceland, international espionage, and murder.
Another astonishing thriller from one of crime fictionâ€™s
brightest stars, The Draining Lake is Arnaldur Indridasonâ€™s
most gripping book yet.
