Justice undone, winner of the 1988 Nordic Prize (the Nordic 'Booker'), brought Thor Vilhjalmsson popular success in Iceland. Born in Edinburgh in 1925, and educated in Iceland, the UK and France, he was previously regarded as an esoteric figure, a novelist, short-story writer, poet and essayist, the translator of such writers as Malraux, Eco and Allende into Icelandic, and a leading exponent of Icelandic modernism. In Justice Undone, he turns his attention to a historical event, the trial of half-siblings accused of incest and infanticide. Vilhjalmsson's rediscovery of the narrative fervour of Late-Romantism is brilliantly illuminated by his mastery of modernist techniques: the result is an astonishing psychological depth.
