From the Paperback edition.

Présentation de l'éditeur

Building work in an expanding Reykjavík uncovers a shallow grave.



Years before, this part of the city was all open hills, and Erlendur and his team hope this is a typical Icelandic missing person scenario; perhaps someone once lost in the snow, who has lain peacefully buried for decades. Things are never that simple.



Whilst Erlendur struggles to hold together the crumbling fragments of his own family, his case unearths many other tales of family pain. The hills have more than one tragic story to tell: tales of failed relationships and heartbreak; of anger, domestic violence and fear; of family loyalty and family shame. Few people are still alive who can tell the story, but even secrets taken to the grave cannot remain hidden forever...



Winner of the CWA Gold Dagger.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Such vivid descriptions that you cannot read it in one go 9 août 2005
Par Linda Oskam - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
A corpse is found on a hill in the outskirts of Reykjavik. It looks like it has already been there for a long time, but the excavation goes terribly slow because a team of archaeologists is carrying out the work. In the meantime inspector Erlendur and his colleagues try to get a picture of what happened 50 to 70 years ago. Slowly but surely they find out the awful truth. In between the story line of the investigation, there is another storyline about a family consisting of a father, mother, 2 brothers and a handicapped sister. It soon becomes apparent that something horrible happened in the family and this is written down so vividly that I had to put down the book a few times because it nearly became too much. An in the meantime Erlendur's drugs-addicted daughter Eva Lind is in a coma and he finally finds the courage to tell her what he feels for her. In short, this is a wonderful, sensitive thriller with a lot of psychological insight, well-developed storylines and beautiful descriptions of the various characters.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Cold Case 15 octobre 2006
Par Gary Griffiths - Publié sur Amazon.com

If you're a fan of crime fiction and well-plotted mysteries, and are on the lookout for a fresh new face in a crowded genre, then you'll be doing yourself a favor by trying Arnaldur Indridason and his captivating "Silence of the Grave".

Back from last year's "Jar City" is Erlendur Sveinsson, the jaded Reykjavik police detective plodding bitterly though a life of regrets. A skeleton is found while excavating a new housing project, quickly determined to be decades old, and assumed a murder victim. With a supporting cast of eccentric archeologists and his own quirky investigative team, Erlender gets to the bottom of a gut-wrenching tale of domestic violence and child abuse.

A word of warning - this is some tough material. Any idyllic views of a society tolerant to drug use may be shocked into sensibility with the author's unapologetic portrayal of life among the needles and crack vials. And Erlender is about as bleak a character as the barren Icelander setting in which he is cast - the subject matter adding to a general air of depression and despair. But this is powerful noir fiction, only heightened by the dark setting, as Indridason's prose captures the unique Scandinavian brand of fatalism. The mystery is tightly wound and fully engaging, taking more than a few twists along the way before reaching a cleverly poignant conclusion. In the end, a haunting tale of revenge with little redemption - a novel that you'll not easily forget. Clearly one of the year's best - don't miss it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 a very engaging read 2 janvier 2007
Par tregatt - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is the second installment in Arnaldur Indridason's Detective Inspector Erlendur Svinssson series, and it definitely does, in my opinion, top "Jar City" -- the first book in the series. Evenly paced and highly suspenseful, it is no wonder that "Silence of the Grave" won the Golden Dagger Award. I certainly was riveted by this novel and (literally) read on relentlessly till the very last page.

When skeletal remains are discovered at the building site of a new housing estate, Detective Inspector Erlendur Svinsson and his team are called in to take charge of the case. The first thing the team must do is establish just how long the skeleton has lain buried, and then determine if this indeed a case of murder, or something else. And if certain members of Erlendur's team (Detective Sigurdur Oli in particular) aren't too sure why they're wasting so much time on a cold case, it is obvious that Erlendur holds to the belief that every suspicious death deserves an investigation, and that Erlendur at least feels that there is something suspicious about this mysterious burial. Elendur's quest to learn the truth will take him back to Iceland during W.W.II, and to the guilty secrets of two families in particular. This case will also lead him to reexamine on his own past and his own failed relationships with his ex-wife and his two children, and to wonder if it is not too late to repair the damage...

Arnadldue Indridason is a very gifted storyteller, and I have to thank both him and his brilliant translator, Bernard Scudder, for the 4 very pleasurable hours I spent reading "Silence of the Grave." The novel was evenly paced, taut and completely riveting. The book is divided into two subplots -- one subplot deals with the events of the past, while the other subplot centers on the current investigation. It is not an easy thing to do, going backwards and forwards in time, while still managing to maintain a level of suspense and to keep readers guessing as to the identity of the unearthed skeleton. And yet, the author managed this feat with ease, skill and finesse. And even though I expected and suspected certain developments, the denouncement still took me by some surprise. Truly, "Silence of the Grave" was very well done, and if you're looking for a fresh voice in the police procedural genre and one that will hold your interest from beginning to end, you will want to check both "Silence of the Grave" and "Jar City" out.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Sometimes better than the original 20 novembre 2006
Par Stefan Steinsson - Publié sur Amazon.com

As I write this 11/19/06 the film "Mýrin" (Tainted Blood, Jar City, Nordermoor) has just won 5 Eddas (the Nordic Oscar). I am normally niggardly with stars, 4 for my best liked, 5 for masterpieces, 3 for well liked. Last year Silence of the Grave won the Golden Dagger, the English Detective Stories' award. As I read it in the original version, I viewed mr. Scudder's translation at the same time. Indridason is not the best of stylists and Scudder sometimes betters him. I remember one sentence off hand."Erlendur veit ekkert í sinn haus" verbatim means "E. knows nothing into his head." I think most people would translate it "E does not have a clue" but Scudder renders it "Erlendur does not know his arse from his elbow." I can remember there were more instances like this, where Scudder lifts the text to a higher standard. I am not as critical as mr Klovsjö of Sweden (see his critique on amazon.co.uk) but I agree that the solution of the plot was a little thin and the main character's personal issues are a bit à la Martin Beck. Sjöwall / Wahlöö are obviously better writers though and must surely have won a golden dagger at some point. This depends on the translator though, and Bernard Scudder owns a big part in Indridason's golden dagger. I suggest that Icelandic readers read Scudder's translation, and everyone else, i.e. those who can read English.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Love Me This Icelandic Thriller... 2 juillet 2011
Par Michael B Shore - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
What starts as a birthday party for a young Icelandic boy, turns into a fascinating mystery that spans back 60 years. Indridason builds his story very artfully and the main characters are very well developed.

At first I had difficulty with the Icelandic names as they do not roll off the tongue and are not easily distinguishable for someone of a much different tongue. However, when I just went with the story, I realized that the setting in Iceland was one of the best parts for me as i was transported to a place i have never been.

As i got further into the book, the story just got better and better, while the mystery kept deepening. Besides being a fantastic crime mystery, Silence of the Grave was an excellent introduction into the culture of Iceland. I really liked this book , the characters and the writing style. I will be reading more from this author.
