"[Jar City is] a model
puzzle presented with clarity and crisp economy."
- Kirkus Reviews
Jar City is the first book in Arlandur Indridason’s Reykjavik Thriller series. This book has also been published in English with the title Tainted Blood.
This novel is set in Reykjavik, Iceland where a lonesome old man is found dead in his apartment. A cryptic note and a photograph of a young girl's grave are the only initial clues.
Inspector Erlendur finds out that several years ago the old man was accused of rape. He was not convicted, but could it be that his past has come back to haunt him?
As Erlandur tracks back through the old man's life, revealing an excess of grimy secrets, he also discover a puzzling genealogical trail that seems to stretch all through the country.
