Inspector Erlendur returns in this international Bestseller

Following an earthquake, the water level of an Icelandic lake suddenly falls, revealing a skeleton. Inspector Erlendur's investigation takes him back to the Cold War era, when bright, left-wing students in Iceland were sent to study in the ""heavenly state"" of Communist East Germany. Teeming with spies and informants, though, their ""heavenly state"" becomes a nightmare of betrayal and murder. Brilliantly weaving international espionage and a chilling cold case investigation, The Draining Lake is Arnaldur Indridason at his best.

""[A] remarkable series.""--The New York Times Book Review

""Indridason keeps readers guessing . . . until the very last pages of this moody investigation.""--The Washington Post Book World

""The missing-persons theme and the exploration of Icelandic history and society remain the trademarks of this outstanding series; this time the addition of international espionage will remind readers of Henning Mankell in The White Lioness and The Dogs of Riga.""--Booklist

""This is exceptional fiction that transcends its genre.""--Library Journal

""An  undiluted pleasure . . . This series places Indridason at the center of the best of contemporary crime fiction. He is a master storyteller and has a real gift for evoking the complex humanity at the heart of the most dour-seeming individuals.""--The Guardian (UK)

""A book as subtle and moving as it is suspenseful.""--The Wall Street Journal
