gained in translation, but now lost

I was saddened to learn, via Sarah Weinman’s blog, that Bernard Scudder has died. Scudder was the excellent translator of Arnaldur Indridason’s work, among others. His work was always transparent, fluid, and accessible to both British and US audiences, while retaining a wholly Icelandic feel. What a loss.
