Summary

When a body of a woman is discovered at a lighthouse in the Icelandic town of Akranes, it soon becomes clear that she’s no stranger to the area.

Chief Investigating Officer Elma, who has returned to Akranes following a failed relationship, and her collegues Sævar and Hörður commence an uneasy investigation which uncovers a shocking secret in the dead woman’s past that continues to reverberate in the present day.

But as Elma and her team make a series of discoveries, they bring to light a host of long-hidden crimes that shake the entire community. Sifting through the rubble of the townspeople’s shattered memories, they have to dodge increasingly serious threats and find justice...before it’s too late.

Nope

Very difficult to listen to. To British ears the names and locations are like gibberish. I had forgotten the names of the characters by chapter 6. I just had to call it a day It’s very dark and depressing.

Very good overall, but difficult pronunciations

Unfolding story, well told. The pronunciation off names and places was authentic Icelandic (I presume) in the English translation, which I appreciate, but found jarring, and also found it impossible to understand the longer names! For me this was the major distraction from an otherwise enjoyable holiday listen.
