The nail-biting new story from the million copy best-selling author.
Teacher wanted on the edge of the world....
Una knows she is struggling to deal with her father's sudden, tragic suicide. She spends her nights drinking alone in Reykjavik, stricken with thoughts that she might one day follow in his footsteps.
So when she sees an advert seeking a teacher for two girls in the tiny village of Skálar - population of 10 - on the storm-battered north coast of the island, she sees it as a chance to escape.
But once she arrives, Una quickly realises nothing in city life has prepared her for this. The villagers are unfriendly. The weather is bleak. And, from the creaky attic bedroom of the old house where she's living, she's convinced she hears the ghostly sound of singing.
Una worries that she's losing her mind.
And then, just before Christmas, there's an unexplained death, and Una's life going from bad to worse....

Lots of layers & twists
I do like Amanda Redman's style with the Ragnor Jonasson books, she captures that everyday sense of normalcy, then mixes it with chills, fear, & the writer's multi-layered morals of the characters.
Listened to this very quickly, couldn't put it down.

I have enjoyed Jonasson’s novels in the past and the synopsis was intriguing but the execution lazy. Sloppy plot, loose ends, 2 dimensions characters.
