    EBOOK / PDF [Reykjavíkurnætur] This is a preuel to the Erlunder series which has remained one of my favorite Nordic series Was wonderful seeing the young Erlunder in the role of a traffic cop but how he still managed to put together things that had escaped others The bones of the later Erlunder already in place Not able to let go of something until it is solved to his satisfaction This plot revolved around a missing woman and a group of street people Loved to see the c

    EBOOK / PDF [Reykjavíkurnætur] I found this a bit disappointing I've read several other Erlendur novels and have always found them extremely atmospheric I found this one rather matter of fact It was interesting to read this preuel and find out how Erlendur started as a de

Reykjavíkurnætur

Reykjavíkurnætur characters » PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook THE LIVINGErlendur has recently joined the police force as a young officer and immediately sinks into the darkness of Reykjavik's underworld Working nights he discovers the city is full of car crashes robberies drinkers and fighters And some. I m still playing catch up here I actually finished this book about a week ago As usual you can certainly feel free to choose between the longer detailed review at my online reading journal or the shorter version here To my intense delight Erlendur is back albeit as a young patrolman on the night shift in a preuel to the entire series On his regular shift one night young patrolman Erlendur receives a report that takes him to the scene of the drowning of a homeless man who went by the name Hannibal Since it didn t seem to investigators that there had been any foul play CID assumed that Hannibal s death was an accident and the case goes cold After all the man was known to be a tramp CID had other fish to fry and basically no one seemed interested Erlendur however had known Hannibal prior to his death having crossed paths with him now and then and just shortly before Hannibal s death had listened to Hannibal when he d claimed that someone had set fire to the cellar where he was living Like everyone else Erlendur didn t believe him Now a year later while Hannibal is just a name on a file tucked away somewhere in police archives Erlendur can t forget him Flying under the radar of his superiors he decides he has to find out what really happened to this lost soul that night But Hannibal s case is just one of two cold cases Erlendur can t forget The case of a missing wife from the proverbial other side of the tracks in one of Iceland s better neighborhoods haunts him as wellFor people who have given this book less than a good rating because they found the crimes uninteresting or even boring well you re certainly entitled to your opinion and it s certainly true that people approach books differently but if you re judging this book on the basis of the crimes and crime solving in my opinion you may have missed the point The very best element of Reykjavik Nights imho is not found in the crimes in the idea that true evil doesn t discriminate between the best and worst neighborhoods in any city in the social issues or even in Erlendur s clandestine investigations It lies with Erlendur Sveinsson himself Even though he s very young and hasn t yet started on the career path as a detective where he ends up with the dream team of colleagues Sigurdur Oli and Elinborg the Erlendur whom readers know from the regular series novels is all anchored right here the loner the traditionalist the seeker of lost souls Since I know how things are going to turn out for him later I found myself for example actually upset when he started dating future ex wife Halldora because well as everyone knows that s just not going to turn out well It hit me while reading this book just how very much I ve ended up investing in Erlendur over several years that may sound kind of stupid since he s a fictional character but I suppose it means that Indridason has created a character whose life I actually cared about To be very blunt I can t honestly say that about most the characters in most crime fiction novels I read I think this book works best for people who ve already read the entire series It s much simplistic than the other novels and I m inclined to believe that the author did that on purpose to keep the focus on Erlendur himself rather than on the crimes I appreciated the obviously slower pace for that very reason

Chronologically the last we knew of Erlendur the police detective of Arnaldur s series he was perhaps forever searching for the remains of his younger brother As young boys they got lost in a wilderness snowstorm and inadvertently separated Erlendur has never given up the search for his lost brother This chronological last sighting of Erlendur was in Fur ustrandir Strange Shores The next to last book in the series The Chess Match instead featured a young Erlendur back in the beginning of his career This latest book goes even further back in time to 1974 While the Chess Match is set during the Fisher Spasski duel Reykjav kurn tur Reykjavik Nights concerns itself with missing people and anchors Erlendur s obsession almost his reason for being finding the missingYet here is another sense in which Arnaldur the author has his main character search for the missing the body of one of the persons he concerns himself with is not missing in the sense of it having disappeared his body was uickly found Rather his searchlight is on after a man who most had forgotten and was too insignificant for anyone to look closely into why he drowned Erlendur in his free time wonders and discovers this homeless drunkard s fate and who he was So along with Reykjavik in all its drunken modality in those days it was not fashionable or for tourists we see how the homeless men and women survive or notI was a student in Reykjavik those days how well the localities are described The gray cement hot water tank featured in the book I so often used to take a walks on it Is it still thereWe get to know Erlendur better He gets along with his fellow cops their nightshift cruising is often a source of hilarity some just to the reader given the changing times and attitudes towards such strange things as pizza sometimes as its shows up the delusional notions of the petty criminal But Erlendur is a loner He saw how it was not for him to travel with relentlessly merry people The merriment could be oppressive He has met the woman who we happen to know will become his wife but she is not important to him work is his obsessions are He excuses himself with his work his schedule etc When she tells him she is pregnant we never see him concern himself with that He daydreams of going to school again then to the university to study guess what Icelandic historyArnaldur himself studied history at the University of Iceland Interestingly as history weaves itself through his books one makes these observations Also one current event looms and then it is a setting the 1974 National Celebration in ingvellir of Iceland s 1100 years birthday Arnaldur would have been 13 at this time but his father was the national chairman of the event and even wrote a book about it Surely the son would have been at ingvellir on that 17th of June And now his character is there The command post of the police was a short distance from the tent of the directors of the festival Later surprising the police were protesters against Iceland in Nato Ha ha I was visiting my brother who was studying in Germany or else we might have been there protesting like good leftwing students But our dad was also in an organizing committee for this event so we d have behaved I hope Wonder what Arnaldur and his dad thought of the unexpected hoo ha but here Erlendur does not take part in the arrests Barefoot children played at the water s edge Did Arnaldur do that and did he then like Erlendur inch closer to the stage when T mas Gu mundsson the poet read his commemorative poem At any rate the description in the book of that beautiful day is excellent even the appearance of what his fellow policeman calls the bloody communists completes the picture This next to last chapter really sits outside the main story line and the only connection with the oeuvre in general is that it is made the setting of Erlendur literally being tapped to join Iceland s new and tiny detective suad I think it celebrates a special memory What a sweep in one book the down and out at their most pathetic huddling for warmth in the winter dark the nation reveling in its survival in the bright summer glory It is something few foreigners realize unless they live in Iceland how happily one turns one s face to the sun in lee from the wind Also the drunkards and the homeless relish that moment and Arnaldur has gotten that scene too
