He started his career at his local club ÍF Völsungur Húsavik, and moved to Stoke City in England as a teenager. Failing to grab a place on the first team, he returned to Iceland to play for KR. After the 2004 season he moved to SK Brann in Bergen, Norway where he plays as a defender. He showed acceptable defensive skills, but clear weaknesses in his passing game and general offensive play from his right back position. Before the 2006 season, Kristján was moved into the central defence, after both Ragnvald Soma and Paul Scharner were sold after the 2005 season.
Kristján showed that he is a supreme centre back with his great speed - he was tested to be the fastest Brann player on 40 metres relay before the 2006 season. He is also considered to have great strength in the air, even though he is shorter than most players who play in his position. Some commentators have compared Kristján's style of play to that of Argentine centre back Roberto Ayala, although both players differ greatly in quality. Kristján and his teammate Ólafur Örn Bjarnason started the season excellently and were nicknamed Ørneredet which means Eagle's nest (both players have Örn as their middle name, and Örn/Ørn is the Norwegian and Icelandic word for eagle). After several years in Bergen including the 2007 season which ended at the top position in the Norwegian Premier League, his contract with Brann ended after the 2009 season.
