Jar City

New York: Thomas Dunne Books, 2005

8vo, pp. 275. Original black boards, lettered in silver on spine. A very fine copy in dustwrapper.

First US edition, SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR on the title-page.
A riveting Icelandic police thriller, as bleak as the landscape and climate in which it's set. The book was filmed, in Iceland, in 2006. Given the twin Scandinavian successes of Wallender and The Killing, someone is almost certainly planning an English-language remake. It won't be as good as the original, which we urge you to track down.
