Jar City
Jar City A Reykjavík Thriller By Arnaldur Indriðason Book - 2005

Jar City is the first of a series set in Iceland. The murder is current (2001) and may have been triggered by events 40 years earlier. Scandinavian crime novels have become popular with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Wallander series. A common theme is that historically the authorities abused their powers. Add some Kafkaesque elements and there's a winning combination.
