A body is found off the coast of Iceland. A young Russian woman, Elena, came to make a fresh start. Instead she found death. A cursory police investigation calls it suicide. Another statistic, she's soon forgotten . . .

But not by Reykjavik Detective Inspector Hulda Hermannsdóttir. Difficult and unconventional, Hulda is being forced into early retirement. Offered one last case to investigate she chooses Elena's. On discovering another woman has vanished, she believes a killer roams free.

Her colleagues, however, think she's out to cause trouble. With days to find the truth, can Hulda catch the killer alone?
