Haunted by personal demons, Detective Erlunder decides to take a short leave of absence, putting his female assistant, Elinborg, in charge while he is gone. When a disturbing case lands on her desk, Elinborg is quickly thrust into a world of violent crime. A serial rapist is on the loose, and the clock is ticking as the police race to catch him before he strikes again.
With exceptional prose, heartpounding suspense, and a mystery that is not solved until the last page, Indridason fans everywhere will be thrilled to return to Reykjavik in this outstanding crime novel.
"While Indridason provides his usual insights into Icelandic society and culture, lucky breaks mark much of the plodding police work, and the meandering forays into Elinborg's personal life...may make her more human but dont add much of interest." - Publishers Weekly
"Starred Review. Genuinely fascinating...A deeply compelling procedural that should provide Indridason an even wider audience than he already has found." - Booklist
"Another deftly modulated murder puzzle from Indridason with terrific character portraits, many twists and a satisfying "aha!" moment." - Kirkus
"Fans of old-school sleuthing and new-school crime thrillers alike will relish this terrific read with its modern heroine but old-fashioned, meticulous approach." - Library Journal
"Outrage is further evidence that Indridason is one of the most brilliant crime writers of his generation." - The Sunday Times (UK)
