    One thought on “Oblivion”

    1. Another amazing prequel showcasing Erlunder, this time not as patrol officer but as an Inspector working with his mentor and partner Marion Breem. Two cases, one of special interest, the unofficial working of an unsolved disappearance of a young girl, twenty years in the past and the second involving the death of an Icelander soon traced back to the Army base.I loved following how these two cases were solved, the glimpses we are given into Erlunder's character showing how he becomes the man he i [...]

    2. This latest of the Inspector Erlendur series (in the order of English translation) is another step in tracing Erlendur's development as a young policeman. Here, in 1979, a few years after Reykjavík Nights: Murder in Reykjavík, he is a detective. He is already -- or perhaps better, is still -- the brooding man, seemingly often lonely and alone. In this episode, the body of a man is found in one of the lagoons outside the city. The condition of the body indicates a fall from a great height. Seco [...]

    3. Erlendur returns for another episode of his pre-quel adventures. Great intro, straight into the story & good to see Marion finally involved who was the older (then retired) detective so oft mentioned in the original series I think ive related that correctly.!The story is set in 1979 with the American Air Force based in Iceland as part of the cold war & the main mystery revolves around this & as per usual Erlendur does a little “missing persons” detective work in his spare time as [...]

    4. a tutti gli Indridasoniani: Marion è femmina*. Almeno, in questo libro. :-DSarebbe carino decidersi, no? Per il resto, niente da segnalare. Il solito giallo alla Indridason (anzi, gialli, sono due che corrono paralleli), i personaggi che sembra di conoscere personalmente da sempre e ai quali siamo tutti affezionati, la solita scrittura scabra, senza fronzoli, diretta; Erlendur alle prime armi ma già segnato dalla vita e propenso più a pensare che ad agire. Non si fa mattina per vedere come va [...]

    5. Having seen Arnaldur Indridason give one of his rare interviews at Harrogate recently, I can say that his style of writing matches his personality – considered, unrushed and low-key. None of these attributes are a criticism in my opinion as his writing style is typical of the Nordic Noir genre which I love - those who want a fast-paced crime thriller with lots of action, choose another book, but if you like your plot to unwind slowly and surely, as if in real time, then this is for you.The aut [...]

    6. Into Oblivion by Arnaldur Indridason.This was my 8th book in the Inspector Erlendur series. This author is so very talented that his books never become boring or repetitive. The investigation is done slowly and methodically with a relentless passion for truth. The body of a man is found in the milky white lagoon far removed from the public. His body severely battered appears to have been thrown or fallen from a great height. Marion, Erlendur's mentor, has finally convinced him to accept the prom [...]

    7. Sad ErlendurUn giallo che appartiene al passato giovanile di Erlendur, quando muoveva i primi passi nella polizia investigativa; ma qui in Italia è stato pubblicato nel 2016, dopo che abbiamo conosciuto il protagonista ormai in età avanzata e affermato commissario.Per me una conferma di quanto Erlendur e le atmosfere dell'Islanda abbiano fatto presa su di me: una trama piuttosto lineare, un buon intreccio, un finale che tutto sommato non stupisce, il mio giudizio in sintesi. Se dovessi basarmi [...]

    8. This is a throw back episode to 1979. Erlendur is a young detective, just promoted and partnered with Marion. There are two separate investigations he is focused upon during this novel. And for me, that's the prime reason for the 3 star. Because just like in this instant, I become interested in one thread far more than the other and seem to be taken "out of" that progression repeatedly by the switching back and forth. Very much dislike this short chapter, constant switching.It's the usual slow p [...]

    9. Είναι το δεύτερο prequel της σειράς βιβλίων του επιθεωρητή Έρλεντουρ (το πρώτο ήταν το ''Reykjavik Nights'') και σε αυτό ο αγαπημένος μας ισλανδός ντετέκτιβ είναι μεγαλύτερος σε ηλικία και προσφάτως χωρισμένος από την γυναίκα του. Παρουσιάζει μεγάλο ενδιαφέρον ότι βλέπουμε την συνεργα [...]

    10. My View:This is the thirteenth book in the Inspector Erlendur series and it serves a couple of purposes; it is tale of two mysteries that help provide a little more insight into the reasoning/passions of the main protagonist Detective Erlendur and we discover a little more about the harsh environment that this series is set in, some of the politics and history of the Iceland.As with all the books in this series you will not find gore and violence in forensic detail or tension and pace that will [...]

    11. Not only was this a great crime mystery/suspense, but I learned a lot about Iceland. I for sure will not partake in the skate dish they serve there. I read this book again for a 2nd time since my mind was slightly elsewhere the first time and after reading:I wanted to read it again since I wanted to get to know the inspector from an earlier perspective before he ended up going up on the mountain in "Strange Shores leaving us wondering on a cliff as to what was his end?

    12. Þessi bók virkar ekki eins og hún sé skrifuð fyrir Íslendinga þar sem inn á milli koma þungir og klunnalegir kaflar sem útskýra á þurran hátt söguna á bak við veru hersins á Miðnesheiði og fleira. Mér fannst plottið nokkuð langsótt og augljóst allan tímann að morðið hafði ekkert að gera með kjarnorkuvopn eða leyniþjónustu Bandaríkjanna.Arnaldur skrifaði í gamla daga nokkuð áreynslulausan texta þar sem hann hélt manni við efnið, en hann er í raun fyrir [...]

    13. Good story lines with the usual measured pace of detection and discovery. Surprising history of U.S. military relations with Iceland is revealed. Good to get this early look at Erlendur as a detective.

    14. Det var ganska många år sedan (nästan exakt sju, faktiskt) jag läste den första boken i den här serien och även om jag kanske inte har varit stormförtjust i dem alla tolv så har de här böckerna alltid varit ett välkommet avbrott i den hektiska tid vi lever i. För att inte tala om den fantastiska miljön. Läs mer på min blogg

    15. This a great read; wonderfully told as the author slowly unfolds his stories concerning the discovery of an unknown body and Erlendur's on-going fascination and interest in missing persons and strange events.Set in and around Reykjavik and the USA base at Kevlavik in the early career of Erlendur and therefore pre-dates Jar City and the wonderful tales many will have read.I have read them all and therefore these earlier set books are very interesting and build on that character I have enjoyed for [...]

    16. Young detective Erlendur investigate two crimes; a cold case involving the disappearance of a girl on her way to school 25 years earlier and a murdered body found in a lava field. Erlendur becomes obsessed with his off the books investigation of the missing girl while the murder victim is traced back to his place of employment, the (US) NAS Keflavik, Iceland. Unfortunately, the authors complete confusion regarding American military structure staggers the imagination and totally jumps the shark. [...]

    17. Erlendur is back, this time an early case when he was a much younger policeman. He works on a cold case while his mentor Marion works on a suspicious death. Erlendur helps Marion when not working on the disappearance of a young girl. A satisfying story giving more insight into Erlendur and what makes him tick. Looking forward to more of this character.

    18. E' sempre il solito caro vecchio Erlendur (anche se qui è giovane, 35 anni). Come sempre la materia gialla è esile, al limite del beige, ma il contorno che tratteggia (la base aerea Nato, il rapporto conflittuale tra americani e islandesi) molto interessante e ben narrato. Nota: e quindi Marion è un uomo?! decidetevi, non è che può cambiare sesso ad ogni libro!

    19. Tage der Schuld ist der zweite Band der Fälle des jungen Erlendur. Er ermittelt wieder in Begleitung seines langjährigen Mentors Marian Briem. Die beiden bilden ein hervorragenges Team und ich freue mich, mehr über Briem (der aus den ersten Bänden der "alten" Erlendur-Krimis bekannt ist) zu erfahren.Erlendur und Marian Briem ermitteln im Fall eines isländischen Mechanikers, der tot in einem See unweit der amerikanischen Militärbasis aufgefunden wird. Bei ihren Nachforschungen stoßen sie a [...]

    20. Oblivion is the second English translated book in the young Erlendur series by Arnaldur Indridason. Set about five years after Reykjavik Nights our detective is now divorced and estranged from his young family. His desire to investigate missing people is growing as the years have gone by. He is still obsessed by the disappearance of Dagbjört, a schoolgirl who had vanished on her way to school over thirty years ago. As much as I loved the original series of Reykjavik Murder Mysteries I think I [...]

    21. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.I'll be heading off to Iceland within the year, so I was interested in reading an Icelandic author. I'm familiar with the nordic noir phenomenon that started with "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo", but trying to read Henning Mankel or Jo Nesbo has left me cold (haha). The common theme in this subgenre, which "Girl" lacked, seems to be depression and relentless dreariness, along with a lack of psychological complexity. [...]

    22. IJsland 1979. Een vrouw ontdekt tijdens het baden in een meer nabij de kerncentrale van Reykjanes een verminkt lijk van een man. Rechercheur Erlendur Sveinsson en zijn collega Marion Briem worden er naartoe gestuurd om de zaak te onderzoeken.Tegelijkertijd houdt een vijfentwintig jaar oude zaak Erlendur bezig, waarin Dagbjort een meisje is dat destijds op onverklaarbare wijze verdween.“Onland”, een militaire vliegbasis die ook wel Fort Knox wordt genoemd, is het plaats delict van het gevonde [...]

    23. Ah, welcome back Erlendur, and his creator Arnaldur. This, like 'Reykjavik Nights', was quite a straightforward story with less of the sorrow that one has found in some recent works in the series, especially the profoundly tragic and moving "Strange Shores". I have learned to trust Arnaldur completely in his historical references, so this book gives us an excellent insight into Iceland in 1978. We are shown the attitudes to the NATO base at Keflavik (the left solidly against, some of the right a [...]

    24. I've enjoyed Indridason's Iceland-based crime series with detective Erlendur, and Into Oblivion is another winner. It's supposedly #2 in the series, yet it was just released- well after several others in the catalog have already been available. I'm not sure if that's intention- to fill in some gaps in Erlendur's early life- or if there are issues related to translation or publication in the US. Into Oblivion takes a step back to where Erlendur was a young, relatively new detective, just 33 years [...]

    25. Happily, although Erlendur appears to have come to a sticky end in an earlier book, Arnaldur is now filling in the missing years in his life and has now reached the late 70s (references to international events seem to put this in 1979). There are two main strands - a contemporary, i.e. 1979, case involving the death of an Icelander which leads back to the American base at Keflavik (and gives the author a chance to explore the mixed feelings which the US presence provoked - many Icelanders unhapp [...]

    26. I do like the Erlendur series. Just about all of them feature a current crime and an unsolved crime from years past. This is the second prequel to the series, taking place in 1979 when Erlendur has just become a detective with the Crimes Investigation Division (CID). I like the way each book reveals a little bit more about the complex character that is Erlendur and I like the way this detective plugs away until he solves his cases. This book opens at the Blue Lagoon which is the very first place [...]

    27. I was totally involved with Erlendur and Marion in their solving of the lost girl and the murder of the man found in the lagoon. It followed a dogmatic and generally a common sense type of thinking. Involving Caroline (base police) was the best way to get information on the US base. And following leads on the lost girl were the only way to find out what had happened to her since they were not followed previously. It makes sense knowing what makes Erlendur tick in his quest to find the girl, know [...]

    28. Het is officieel: Arnaldur Indriðason is mijn favoriete schrijver. Ook dit 10de of 11de verhaal dat ik in de serie over inspecteur Elendur Sveinsson las (een prequel in dit geval) wist me weer mateloos te bekoren omwille van de sobere maar treffende schrijfstijl. En zoals het meestal het geval is, geeft de schrijver een inkijk in de voor ons onbekende Ijslandse maatschappij via een actuele misdaad en een zoektocht naar een oude verdwijning, waarbij de gekwelde Erlendur op zoekt gaat naar een no [...]
