The Shadow DistrictBook - 2017
A 90-year-old man is found dead in his bed. On his desk the police find newspaper cuttings about a murder case dating from the Second World War, when a young woman was found strangled behind Reykjavík's National Theatre. Konrád, a former detective, is bored with retirement and remembers the crime. Alternating between Konrád's investigation and the original police inquiry, we discover that two girls had been attacked in oddly similar circumstances. Did the police arrest the wrong man? How are these cases linked across the decades? And who is the old man?
