Publisher's Summary

Inspector Erlendur returns in this award-winning international best-seller.

The Christmas rush is at its peak in a grand ReykjavIk hotel when Inspector Erlendur is called in to investigate a murder. The hotel Santa has been stabbed to death, and Erlendur and his fellow detectives find no shortage of suspects between the hotel staff and the international travelers staying for the holidays. As Christmas Day approaches, Erlendur must deal with his difficult daughter, pursue a possible romantic interest, and untangle a long-buried web of malice and greed to find the murderer. Voices is a brutal, soulful noir from the chilly shores of Iceland.

    Story
    "Love this series"

    This story is entertaining and engaging from the start; one of the best for me so far. Inspector Erlendur and his detectives investigate a murder in a Reykjavik hotel. Insightful (and colorful) descriptions of characters, situations and conversations ensue. Indridason (and the translator) is at his best with this novel. George Guidall narrates perfectly.

    Story
    "Darkest in the Series"

    I am a fan of this author and have read all of the series. But this was really dark, more so than any of the others.

    Unless you're into deep noir, I would recommend skipping this and hoping someone smiles occasionally in the next installment.

    Pedophilia, drugs, gang rape, family angst and violence, all set at the holiday. Merry Christmas, not!

    Narrator is superlative, as always. But don't listen depressed. I kept considering which character would suicide first. And did I mention the murder victim was dressing to play Santa!

    "Love the series"

    Such a laid back thoughtful story, perfect narration. Opens a window on Iceland, and the idiosyncratic (to me) police procedures, and general outlook on life.

    Story
    "Almost a 4"

    A mystery set in the Scandinavian area, my favorite genre these last few years. This book is pretty good but I felt bogged down with the number of witnesses with annoying little answers. I was glad when it was finally over. I like the author but this book is weak.
