An inconvenient reassignment has landed Reykjavík crime
reporter Einar in the small northern town of Akureyri, where his biggest story
to date has been the college stage production of Loftur the Sorcerer, an
Icelandic folktale of ambition and greed. But that supposedly ancient history
becomes ominously relevant when an unexpected new story lands in Einar’s lap: a
local woman dies after falling overboard during a corporate boating retreat.
All evidence suggests an accident, but when the victim’s mother cries foul
play, kindhearted Einar agrees to investigate.
Days later, the lead actor in Loftur vanishes, leaving the
locals reeling—and Einar unconvinced that a single village could be so accident
prone. Keenly perceptive and hungry for the truth, he begins to chip away at
the small-town facade, uncovering a tangled and all-too-modern web of power and
greed that threatens to devour the historic community once and for all. Download and start listening now!
