What to expect

THE LIVING

Erlendur works nights. He’s a young officer in Traffic, not yet a detective. And Reykjavik’s nights are full of car crashes, robberies, drinkers and fighters. Sometimes an unexplained death.

THE LOST

A homeless man Erlendur knows is found drowned. But few people care. Or when a young woman on her way home from a club vanishes. Both cases go cold.

THE SEARCHER

Two lost people from two different worlds. Erlendur is not an investigator, but his instincts tell him their fates are worth pursuing. How could they be linked?

IN THE HEART OF THE NIGHT

Inexorably, he is drawn into the blackness of the city’s underbelly, where everyone is in the dark or on the run.
