Author Update: Icelandic and Scandinavian Writers, Arnaldur Indridason

Crime Thrillers! One of the best Icelandic Authors, Arnaldur Indridason  has written 12 crime thrillers about Reykjavik, Iceland  including Jar City and Reykjavik Nights. Recently he started a new series of books about war-time (WWII) in Reykjavik during and after the occupation by American and British troops. In addition to the murders he includes the social issues that arose because of the influx of foreigners. War and occupation always bring changes and the psychology of why people kill others is studied in the first two books in this series:

The Shadow District and The Shadow Killer

Several of Indridason’s books have been made into movies with one of the best being JAR CITY!

Iceland was strategically located during the World Wars and was therefore involved in unique ways. Reading about them explains a lot not only about the wars but also the people!

Great reads for these long winter nights! Clear your calendar because once you start one of these books you won’t want to stop until the ending!
