THE PAST


In wartime ReykjavYk, a young woman is found strangled in a dangerous area known as 'the shadow district'. An Icelandic detective and a member of the American military police are on the trail of a brutal killer.

THE PRESENT

An elderly man is discovered dead on his bed, smothered with his own pillow. KonrBd, a retired detective, finds old newspaper cuttings in the man's home reporting the shadow district murder. It's a crime KonrBd remembers, having grown up in the same neighbourhood.

A MISSING LINK

Why, after all this time, would an old crime resurface? How are these events connected across the decades? And will KonrBd's link to the past help him solve the case and finally lay the ghosts of wartime ReykjavYk to rest?
