Voices




A tense, atmospheric and disturbing novel from one of Europe's greatest crime writers.

A REYKJAVIK MURDER MYSTERY.

It is a few days before Christmas and a Reykjavik doorman and occasional Santa Claus, Gudlauger, has been found stabbed to death in his hotel room in a sexually compromising position. It soon becomes apparent that both staff and guests have something to hide, but it is the dead man who has the most shocking secret.

Detective Erlendur soon discovers that the placidly affluent appearance of the hotel covers a multitude of sins.

Winner of the Crime Writers' Association Gold Dagger.
