A man is found murdered in his Reykjavik flat. There are no obvious clues apart from a cryptic note left on the body and a photograph of a young girl's grave. Delving into the dead man's life Detective Erlendur discovers that 40 years ago he was accused of an appalling crime, but never convicted. Had his past come back to haunt him?
As Erlendur struggles to build a relationship with his unhappy daughter, his investigation takes him to Iceland's Genetic Research Centre, where he uncovers disturbing secrets that are even darker than the murder of an old man.
Jar City is the first book in the series starring Detective Erlendur available in English

Sounded like it was a reading for Horrid Henry
Different narrator more suited to the nature of the book.
Not with same narrator.
Can't go on with it.... narrator tone and voices all wrong
Would definitely benefit from a different narrator
No, i think I would be concerned that they might find the narrator too irritating
When they are digging up the floor in the apartment, it was well described and you could imagine how unpleasant it would have been
His different voices for different characters were weird and his "female" voices in particular were dreadful. When he couched the main character's daughter it was very unconvincing and nearly ruined the whole audio book.
You won't look at the old man living next door the same way again.
