The Girl Who Died

‘TEACHER WANTED ON THE EDGE OF THE WORLD . . .’

After her father’s sudden, tragic suicide, Una spends her nights drinking alone in Reykjavik. She is 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 ten – 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 midwinter, a young girl from the village is found dead. Now there are only nine villagers left.

Now Una fears that one of them has blood on their hands . . .
