    IL LUTTO NON SI ADDICE A BABBO NATALELa voce del titolo quella del morto che da bambino aveva una voce bianca e cantava in modo pi unico che raro al punto che gli si stava per spalancare davanti una luminosa carriera gi due vinili registrati a suo nome , interrotta bruscamente dal cambio di voce durante un importante concerto E cos , nel giro di un attimo, dalle stelle alle stalle, dall altare alla polvere.L ispettore Erlendur nella sua per ora unica apparizione cinematografica, interpretato da Ingvar Eggert Sigur sson, nel bel M rin Jar City del 2006, mai uscito in Italia, diretto dal bravo e poliedrico Baltasar Korm kur.Fu vera gloria No, non si direbbe il bambino voleva esaudire le ambizioni paterne pi che le proprie E tutto sommato, una volta che le luci del palcoscenico si sono spente per lui, ma anche per il padre , il cucciolo d uomo era quasi pi contento.Se non che nel frattempo era diventato lo zimbello dei coetanei, cresceva la sua omosessualit che teneva nascosta, repressa e sigillata, e sviluppava opposizione verso il genitore rimasto, il padre la madre morta troppo presto, ahilui.La sorella, leggermente pi grande, avrebbe molto desiderato una parte delle attenzioni dirette al fratello, che a lei venivano sistematicamente negate Sottratte.Crescendo, la voce diventa portiere d albergo, e tuttofare, alloggiato nel sottoscala dell albergo fino al giorno della morte per accoltellamento a Indri ason piacciono i coltelli Lo trovano coperto di sangue vestito da babbo natale che stava preparandosi per la festicciola prenatalizia per i piccoli ospiti dell hotel M rin l avventura numero 3 dell ispettore Erlendur in Italia il romanzo uscito col titolo Sotto la citt A Indri ason piace anche accennare a un secondo filone d indagine, a un altro caso non principale, sua caratteristica ricorrente un bambino un altro picchiato di brutto da chi, dai suoi coetanei o invece, come crede la polizia, dallo stesso padre E perch a Indri ason piacciono tanto i bambini Perch l ispettore Erlendur che sovrintende alle indagini di tutti i casi di questa fortunata serie fortunata in quanto a vendite, pi che a qualit letteraria quando aveva dieci anni, quando era quindi ancora bambino, ha perso il fratellino nella brughiera sommersa dalla neve Perch lui si salvato Perch il fratello morto Perch il suo corpicino non mai stato ritrovato Trionfo di senso di colpa, e corposo filone di riflessioni mogie che l ispettore, per mano di Indri ason, avvia quando occorre una pausa nell indagine principale.Altra caratteristica dello scrittore di gialli islandese che il morto compaia a pagina 1 e per le restanti trecento e rotte pagine si cerchi chi stato a ucciderlo Per farlo, i poliziotti protagonisti Erlendur e due colleghi, una donna e un uomo fanno un sacco di domande, incontrano e interrogano un numero sterminato di persone, si lasciano andare a riflessioni e quesiti un po banalotti Del tipo aver scoperto che nella saliva del presunto assassino ci sono tracce di tabacco da masticare spinge Erlendur a chiedersi che aiuto possa fornire un simile dato Come se a Reykjavik, o in Islanda, masticare tabacco come facevano i cowboy fosse pratica diffusa non lo il tabacco da masticare quasi introvabile, rimasto uno solo a farlo.Non ci sono altri omicidi nel corso delle trecento e rotte pagine se muore qualcun altro per suicidio o incidente.Non c traccia di corruzione, n politica n economica, non compare malavita, criminalit organizzata Sono delitti molto casuali.A me verrebbe da definire Indri ason giallista sociologo pi interessato all aspetto sociologico, alla descrizione della classe mediobassa islandese, di vite stente, che a un robusto plot, o ad approfondimenti psicologici.Il protagonista, l ispettore Erlendur, non molto simpatico il solito misantropo solitario pieno di sensi di colpa che chiacchiera a fatica, imbranato con le donne, e con i figli Ed la perfetta negazione dell aforisma di Oscar Wilde che invece io sostengo Le domande non sono mai indiscrete Lo sono, talvolta, le risposte Per Erlendur, al contrario, le domande che gli fanno sono tutte indiscrete, si rifiuta di rispondere, considera tutti gli argomenti troppo privati per essere affrontati, si arrabbia, ribatte sgarbato Diavolo d uomo, meglio non incontrarlo.Difatti Erlendur asserisce Perch hai sempre bisogno di una spiegazione per tutto Per certe cose non esiste una spiegazione, mentre altre non hanno bisogno di essere spiegate La gente parla troppo, dovrebbe stare pi zitta Almeno la passerebbe liscia.E, se non fosse abbastanza chiaro, meno di una pagina dopo il concetto viene interamente ripetuto, pi o meno con le stesse parole difficile da spiegare, forse non nemmeno possibile Forse non si pu spiegare tutto, forse alcune cose meglio lasciarle cos come sono, senza una spiegazione.S , l editing non dove Indri ason da il suo meglio.Anche se io credo che il suo meglio risieda altrove, questo romanzo non mi ha colpito, le lodi sperticate di Giancarlo De Cataldo mi sembrano molto esagerate, immotivate.

    Despite the holiday rush and the hustle and bustle in Reykjavik, police Inspector Erlendur is feeling anything but jolly in Arnaldur Indridason s Voices , the fifth installment of the series featuring Iceland s somber detective Erlendur Sveinsson is called to a large, busy hotel at the peak of the Christmas season A maid has discovered the body of the hotel doorman, who was dressed in a Santa suit in preparation for a children s party The victim, Gudlauger, known as Gulli, had been living in a tiny room not much larger than a closet in the hotel s basement for twenty years Now, here he is, in his Santa costume sitting on his bed in a compromising position, stabbed to death Sigurdur Oli, who has accompanied Erlendur to the scene, makes a number of inappropriate but funny remarks about the situation The exchange between the two struck me as being humorous than anything I d read in previous Erlendur books Maybe the image of Santa .Most of the book, however, is quite typical of Indridason s Scandinavian noir style It is mostly dark, and the language is plain and understated, but the themes are complex Without being able to explain his reasons, even to himself, Erlendur books a room in the hotel as he attempts to interview staff and guests He meets with reluctance and resistance as he scrapes and claws for clues Everyone he talks to claims not to have really known the man who was the doorman and unofficial handyman for so many years.At the same time, Erlendur must cope with his daughter Eva Lind, from whom he has been estranged for most of her life She is a recovering drug addict, and now they have formed some semblance of a relationship, but each is frustrated with the other as they try to come to terms with their different lifestyles More importantly, they struggle with their own pasts and self acceptance while trying to discover what they mean to one another.Having read Jar City and Silence of the Grave , I had no doubt that Erlendur would eventually piece things together and solve the crime The plot unfolds slowly There is a lot of trial and error We see pieces of Gulli s past revealed and possible suspects emerge, but there is always doubt until the very end.There are several subplots that may seem distracting or unimportant Some may feel that they add unnecessarily to the length of the story I feel, however, that they support Indridason s central theme Family In the two books I mentioned previously, Erlendur broods about a traumatic event from his childhood Now, perhaps with Christmas near and his daughter badgering him with questions about their relationship, he is haunted by what happened when he was a boy, and he begins to realize how it has affected his entire life We also see another detective, Elinborg, updating Erlendur about a child abuse case she was involved in Then there is a woman who piques Erlendur s interest, and we see yet another case of family dysfunction Finally, there is the maid Osp and her brother, whose family ties have disastrous ends Is it a wonder Erlendur is depressed Christmas, the season that so many associate with love, joy, and family togetherness, for him is lonely and difficult Yet, Erlendur is a professional He does his job, and he does it well I think this may have been my favorite of the three books so far I liked the depth of the characters, the questioning of the past, and perhaps the mixture of fear and hope about what the future might bring.5 stars

    In short A poignant but rather far fetched police procedural that offers in the way of a credible psychological angle than a swift and particularly competent wrap up The upside is seeing Erlendur s reflections on his own life and mistakes along the way, and appreciating how a person s childhood can influence their later life Voices is an investigation that takes the reader closer to Erlendur and his troubled daughter, Eva Lind, than ever before and it is due to this clearer understanding of a father daughter relationship that I am so keen to continue with the series After reading Jar City and meeting Inspector Erlendur and his sidekicks, Sigurdur li and El nborg, I was keen to see them in action tackling another investigation Jar City combined a fascinating and complex investigation with Erlendur providing the social conscience and overseeing a reflective treatment First published in Icelandic in 2003, Voices was translated into English in 2006 by Bernard Scudder who has delivered a remarkably fluent and highly readable rendering In the run up to Christmas, Reykjav k is awash with visitors and festivities should be in full swing inside one of the cities largest and most illustrious hotels Hotel doorman, pseudo caretaker and annual wearer of the Santa costume, forty eight year old Gudlauger Gulli Egilsson, is however discovered stabbed in him grim basement accommodation within the hotel Still clad in his Santa costume, with trousers hanging by his ankles and a condom hanging off his limp penis, the inappropriate jokes are two a penny from Sigurdur li In the equivalent of a prison cell sized room, it appears that Gudlauger has spent to last twenty years and the lack of character and paucity of possessions does not offer much in the way of leads Naturally the call to the police asks for discretion for the guests, however that is the last concern of Erlendur when he assesses the strange circumstances of the victim and the potential suspects With a scant lack of concern for the victim, and his inconvenient timing, sympathy from his colleagues is distinctly lacking The sole possessions to be found in the room is a book relating to the history of the Vienna Boys Choir and a couple of vinyl records, which offers Erlendur limited opportunity to discover about the man It is therefore the presence of saliva on the condom which sees Erlendur taking his first steps and requesting samples, thus necessitating the presence of biotechnician and scene of crime officer Valgerdur, a lady of a similar vintage who also catches the eye of Erlendur.Despite the obstacles in his path, the indefatigable Erlendur s unwavering persistence to discover the who and the why at the heart of this matter reveal an unexpected and fascinating life history, with the victim s shortlived spell as the most admired Icelandic boys soprano coming to an end when nature intervened at twelve years old and his voice broke on stage Tracing the victims history back to Hafnarfj rdur Children s Choir and his former choirmaster, Gabr el Hermannson, Erlendur learns of a life forever blighted by a man s failure to live up to his father s expectations, and marked by crippling bullying and the pattern of self destruction that such circumstances can set in motion The most surprising reaction to Gudlauger s murder comes from his remaining estranged family, a wheelchair bound father and sister, Stefan a Egilsd ttir What lies behind the decades long estrangement of Gudlauger from his family home and why are his relatives so bitter Due to staff cutbacks and the lack of necessity for a full time doorman the victim had been made redundant but subsequently failed to move out from his digs The manager and staff are all keen to dissociate themselves from the matter and reveal how little they knew of the victim, despite his service and residence of over twenty years The slow stripping back of the goings on at the hotel are stymied by the stroppy chambermaid who found the body, sp, only telling a fraction of what she knows in essence, itself a lie and belatedly throwing accusations of theft, the subsequent reluctance of the reception manager to make himself available for questioning and the availability of prostitutes for guests Of the guests, it is the rather shifty and eccentric British vinyl collector, Henry Wapshott, who professes to a specific passion for the music of boys s choirs and tells of his journey to Iceland on the agreement of meeting the former household name soprano and purchasing any remaining records in his possession However, when it turns out that it is not the first visit that Wapshott has made to Iceland, or indeed the hotel, his avoidance of providing a DNA sample and attempts to skip the country force Erlendur to get to probe just what Wapshott is so keen to keep hidden With no sign of Wapshott s down payment amongst the possession of the dead man, there is clearly much to a never ending unravelling.As Erlendur, reluctant to return to his lonely flat over Christmas, checks into a room at the hotel he is overcome by a malaise as he sees parallels with his own life history and Gudlauger s, in the death of his younger brother which marred his childhood and left him with survivors guilt In a sense, Erlendur knows that part of him died that day with his brother freezing to death, and this has in turn impacted his own failure and resolve to be part of his children s lives Opening up about the raw memory and finally facing the way in which it has affected his life, it feels like Erlendur is attempting to address effectively robbing both his offspring of their childhoods when he walked out of their lives in their early years.Erlendur has much in common with the brooding and rather introspective detectives familiar to Nordic Noir Middle aged, divorced for twenty years, he is a world weary figure, with a dogged determination and a man who expects little from his remaining years His failure to keep contact with either of his children at a young age still haunts him and he feels largely responsible for their addiction battles, with son, Sindri Snaer, having been through rehab for alcohol and daughter, Eva Lind, continually engaged in fighting her addiction to drugs and recovering from losing a stillborn daughter, all caused by her reliance on drugs Whilst his son is a distant stranger, Erlendur and Eva Lind share an occasionally fiery relationship, marked by honesty and an acceptance of each other s faults Erlendur s unstinting support of Eva Lind with her withdrawal never turns into preaching and readers will be of the opinion that he has been through his own internal struggles Erlendur is a determined and persistent detective with a compassionate and realistic approach to the failings of society and hence, tackling crime The case itself is fascinating for combining an intriguing back story of the victim, rather than particularly plausible and what Indridason lacks in terms of strict adherence to procedural rigour he than makes up for with his his powerful psychological angle The overriding tone of this affecting and poignant police procedural is rather reflective, with El nborg simultaneously engaged in giving evidence and attending the trail of eight year old assault victim Addi, with his father on trial for causing his brutal injuries and El nborg taking the case rather personally Seeing another young life altered chimes with Gudlauger s situation and evidences how instrumental childhood memories can be in affecting a person s future.Voices is monumentally fascinating not for pinning down the perpetrator which is rather loosely detailed, but for the human interest element of the plot and a chance to reflect on the fragility of family life I wasn t impressed or particularly convinced by the convoluted denouement, which stretches credibility but I do not think tying down the specifics was Indridason s primary focus of a poignant novel Voices comes highly recommended for its insightful and profound take on family life, and how the increasing dependence on drugs and the associated problems of addiction, such as prostitution, have changed modern society All of this resonates with Eva Lind s own situation and the stillborn child that threatens to derail her attempts at getting clean I am keen to see how the future course of this chequered father daughter relationship progresses after Erlendur s recognition of how his own childhood has impacted his adult life and indeed, Eva Lind s own journey Voices is an emotive story with an excellent psychological commentary and can be read as a standalone without previous knowledge of the series and the timely use of flashbacks illustrates the situations of Gudlauger, Addi and Erlendur well.

    Natale in albergoIndridason sempre piacevole, tuttavia La voce mi piaciuto meno dei precedenti La storia ha un suo spessore ma non offre quella vista sulla societ e storia islandese che mi avevano affascinato in La signora in verde e Sotto la citt L atmosfera introspettiva e malinconica sono quelle consuete e occupano circa la met del libro, il suo Erlendur prende una stanza in albergo, anonima per definizione e col riscaldamento non funzionante pur di sfuggire al vuoto della sua casa, come se lo scenario cambiasse la sostanza dei fatti Tuttavia i pensieri non restano appesi nell armadio ma se li porta dietro e animano i suoi sogni.

    Com triste ReykjavikIl delitto che, otto mesi dopo La signora in verde, richiede l intervento Erlendur e la sua squadra ha luogo in un albergo di lusso in piena attivit per le imminenti festivit natalizie, ma noi fedeli lettori di Erlendur, ormai abituati a conoscere i pi sordidi e malfamati luoghi di Reykjavik, non dobbiamo preoccuparci perch non mancher la dose abituale di disagio sociale, emarginazione, solitudine e sofferenza Reykjavik d inverno.Dopo aver letto cinque romanzi di Arnaldur Indri ason non posso fare a meno di chiedermi se la capitale islandese sia un luogo cos triste e desolato, dove non mi verrebbe mai in mente di abitare nonostante il fascino che hanno su di me i luoghi nordici o forse la domanda corretta se gli islandesi siano proprio cos infelici e insoddisfatti, preda di violenza e depressione Sicuramente questa la visione dell autore, che sia per esplicita contrapposizione all immagine ufficiale, patinata e magica, del suo paese o sia una scelta narrativa per spiazzare il lettore non ha molto importanza certamente difficile almeno per me seguire Erlendur nelle sue indagini senza sentirmi oppressa, scoraggiata e insoddisfatta per le battaglie, spesso inutili, del vivere quotidiano Insomma, mi sento come i personaggi di Indri ason e leggo i suoi romanzi identificandomi con lo spirito islandese o almeno quegli aspetti che l autore vuole farci conoscere questa capacit di contagio emotivo l aspetto che io apprezzo maggiormente Viceversa, non sempre l indagine mi sembra ben costruita ed proprio il caso di questo romanzo poich alcuni elementi, palesi sin dall inizio e nodali per l individuazione del colpevole, non vengono colti dagli agenti di polizia che girano a vuoto per un bel po Si pu ipotizzare che questo girare a vuoto sia proprio quello che permette a Indri ason di condurci nelle pi recondite pieghe dell animo umano almeno di quello islandese , anzi io ne sono convinta Kleppur, l ospedale psichiatrico di Reykjavik.
