A body is found off the coast of Iceland.
A cursory police investigation calls it suicide. She's just another statistic, soon forgotten.
But not by Reykjavik Detective Inspector Hulda Hermannsdottir.
Difficult and unconventional, Hulda is being forced into early retirement.
Offered one last cold case to investigate she chooses Elena's.
And when she discovers another woman vanished at a similar time, she believes a killer roams free.
With days before she's stripped of her badge, can Hulda catch the killer alone?
