VJ Books Presents Author Arnaldur Indridason!

Arnaldur IndridasonArnaldur Indridason (Arnaldur Indridason), born 28 January 1961, has repeatedly proved to be the most popular writer in Iceland in recent years - topping bestseller lists year after year. At one week in the summer of 2003, his crime novels occupied the top five spots in the Icelandic bestseller list and in the year 2004 his books were seven of the ten most popular titles borrowed in Reykjavik City Library.

Having worked for many years as a journalist and critic for an Icelandic newspaper, he began writing novels. Arnaldur published his first book, Sons of Dust (Synir duftsins) in 1997 and many believe that that publication marked the start of a new wave of Icelandic crime fiction. He has been praised by American crime writer Harlan Coben: 'The best new series I've read this year comes from Iceland. Arnaldur Indridason is already an international literary phenom -- and it's easy to see why. His novels are gripping, authentic, haunting and lyrical. I can't wait for the next.'

Arnaldur's books have been published in 26 countries and have been translated into German, Danish, English, Italian, Czech, Swedish, Norwegian, Dutch, Finnish, Spanish, Portuguese and French. Arnaldur received the Glass Key award, a literature prize for the best Nordic crime novel, in 2002 and 2003. He won the CWA Gold Dagger Award in 2005 for the novel Silence of the Grave.

Arnaldur Indridason lives in Iceland.
