Autobiography for Quais du Polar
« I’m an author of detective novels from Iceland. My detective, Erlendur, is a solitary middle-aged, very melancholy, father of a lamentable family, but a decent detective. He likes to drink Chartreuse made by French monks, and I really don’t know why except that Chartreuse is mentioned in one of his Icelandic novels, in a somewhat amusing way. »
