Lemma 13.18.2. Let $\mathcal{A}$ be an abelian category. Let $K^\bullet$ be a complex of $\mathcal{A}$.

1. If $K^\bullet$ has an injective resolution then $H^ n(K^\bullet ) = 0$ for $n \ll 0$.

2. If $H^ n(K^\bullet ) = 0$ for all $n \ll 0$ then there exists a quasi-isomorphism $K^\bullet \to L^\bullet$ with $L^\bullet$ bounded below.

Proof. Omitted. For the second statement use $L^\bullet = \tau _{\geq n}K^\bullet$ for some $n \ll 0$. See Homology, Section 12.14 for the definition of the truncation $\tau _{\geq n}$. $\square$
