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

Great novel. One of the best of the 'Scandinavian mystery' authors, I think.
But why can't VPL spell? The VPL catalogue displays his name as Arnaldur Indria̧son? Where does this come from?
Some English translations have his name as Arnaldur Indridason as on this cover. (I wonder how he feels about that.)

His name is really, Arnaldur Indriðason, I believe. No excuse not to spell it right in Canada where Icelandic Canadians have a proud history.

The VPL catalogue does appear to recognize all 3 of these names. But, I don't know that all readers would.
