Justice Undone (Icelandic: Grámosinn glóir) is a novel by Icelandic author Thor Vilhjálmsson. It was first published in 1986.

This crime story is based on an Icelandic trial dating back to the 19th century when two half-siblings were accused of having committed incest. The novel pivots on the magistrate of the trial who has just returned from his studies in Copenhagen.[1]

In 1988, Thor won the Nordic Council Literature Prize for the book.[1] It was translated to English in 1998 by Bernard Scudder.
