The Draining Lake - Book 54

The Draining Lake
By Arnulder Indritason

Book four in the sad and lonely life of Iceland’s top Police Inspector, Erlunder. A small plate shift has caused a local lake to drain, revealing a few secrets long thought buried and forgotten. One revelation was a male skeleton with a hole in his head and a 1960’s era Soviet radio / spy equipment tied around his waist. Clearly investigating a murder, Erlunder must piece together small clues from the Icelandic Socialist party, East German University students, and a decades old missing persons case.

This book is slow and deliberate, and the supporting character storylines are developed. Very good in context with the other books in the series.
