I've read and enjoyed almost all of the Erlander series. When I finished this story involving two cold case missing persons and a "suicide" I was left sad and dejected and cheerless -- a lot like our protagonist. I like the writing, but will need to take a break from the relentless bleakness of these stories to recharge my energies. On the positive side Erlander's personal story and relationships evolved and we're left with the slightest glimmer of hope for him. Downgraded this novel due to lack of retribution. Yes, yes, I know it may be more "realistic" and may appeal to many.

While unofficially investigating a suicide in a remote area, Inspector Erlendur wonders if it could be connected to cold case involving a man and a woman who went missing near the same lake.

I saw this one on a mystery display and I'm sure glad I read it! Great story. I'll read this author again.

An excellent series by one of my favourite Nordic writers.

Erlendur's persistence leads him to solve a mystery on his own, a suicide which no one found suspicious.
He's often described as plodding, but I like the persistence of this tortured character. I'm really enjoying this series.

Detective is good character; well executed, but just okay at end.

Enjoyed even though it was a bit plodding. Only 2 in large print I can read. Interesting to read crime type in other than US.

The Globe & Mail’s rather undiscerning reviewer of mystery books thinks this (#8 in the series) is his best book so far and for once I agree with her; it’s an unconventional story about the main character’s unofficial investigation into a case of suicide; the story’s well told and I’d give it 4.5 or 5 stars were it not for the single-handed nature of the investigation and the overly-easy way in which some side issues are handled; the main character’s private life is handled better here than in most of the previous books in the series
