Publisher's Summary

When single mother Maríanna disappears from her home, leaving an apologetic note on the kitchen table, everyone assumes that she's taken her own life...until her body is found in the Grábrók lava fields seven months later, clearly the victim of murder. Her neglected 15-year-old daughter, Hekla, has been placed in foster care, but is her perfect new life hiding something sinister? 

Fifteen years earlier, a desperate new mother lies in a maternity ward, unable to look at her own child, the start of an odd and broken relationship that leads to a shocking tragedy. Police officer Elma and her colleagues take on the case, which becomes increasingly complex, as the number of suspects grows and new light is shed on Maríanna's past - and the childhood of a girl who never was like the others....

A fine mystery- a lot of layers our intrepid detectives have to sort
through. It is a good ride for the
listener - lots of small town gossip
sprinkled with hard police work.
I liked it. I've been listening
to lots of Audible mysteries set in Iceland. This one ranks right with the best. Now I wait for the author's next
book...
