Publisher's 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.

too hard to follow

because of all the two and three syllable names that was so foreign I had a very hard time following this book even in the end I wasn't sure who killed who but the narration was good but I guess you need to be Swedish to understand it better

Too depressing.

Hard to keep characters straight. Confusing and depressing. Don't bother using a credit for this one.

As audiobook it’s confusing

This might be better as a novel to read in print. As audiobook the story line got too confusing, hopping between past and present. The first few chapters were sooo sloowwww, as the author seemed to paint a picture of dull dull lives, I decided it wasn’t worth the effort of listening further.

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.

Brilliant.

The narrator was good, but being English, I sometimes lost my way with all the unusual Icelandic character's names. The 30s rewind function served me well, enabling me to listen to the chapters again, to catch up. I was nonetheless riveted right to the end. Now for the next book.
