BeschreibungIn a flat near Reykjavík city centre, a young man lies dead in a pool of blood. There is no sign of a break-in: the only clues are a woman¿s purple shawl, found under the bed in the next room, and a vial of prescription drugs in the victim¿s pocket.With Detective Erlendur away in a remote part of Iceland, Detective Elínborg, who is already struggling to juggle family life and the relentless demands of her job, is assigned the case. Her investigation into the murdered man¿s past soon uncovers a squalid tale of double lives, drug dealers and the unsolved disappearance of a young girl many years before.From its explosive opening, Outrage leads down a trail of hidden violence, psychological brutality and of wrongs that will never be fully righted.
