Summary
When a skeleton, dead nearly 50 years, appears in a dry lakebed, Detective Inspector Erlendur and his team are summoned. The victim was murdered, hit in the head and tied to a Soviet listening device before being dumped into the lake. Reopening cold murder cases, Erlendur discovers that the skeleton is somehow connected with students involved in the Icelandic socialist movement and their studies in East Germany after World War II.
Critique
This fourth installment in the Erlendur series is a fascinating look at post WWII East Germany and the recruitment of students to the cause. Gloomy Erlendur continues to obsess about cases of missing persons while trying to understand his own relationships.
