Erlendur is a young cop going about his own business. In the course of his duties, he befriends a homeless man and, when he dies in a drowning, begins to investigate.
This book starts slow but as the story moves along, I realized that the reader is slowly getting to know how this man thinks and works. We're being introduced to a young man who hasn't quite found his path in life.
This appears to be a character-driven series. This sort of series gets better as it goes on. I'm looking forward to reading more of this series. This story may have been a bit slow but it was a good mystery, the people grew and the ending was satisfactory. A good start for a new series.

There is a lot of drinking and drunkenness in Reykjavik, if one is to believe this book. LOL!

Erlendur is reminiscent of Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch who says "Everyone matters or no one matters".
