Description

Yrsa Sigurdardottir, winner of the 2015 Petrona Award for best Scandinavian Crime Novel, delivers another tour de force in her second novel in the Freyja and Huldar series.

A chilling note predicting the deaths of six people is found in a school's time capsule, 10 years after it was buried. But surely, if a 13-year-old wrote it, it can't be a real threat....

Detective Huldar suspects he's been given the investigation simply to keep him away from real police work. He turns to psychologist Freyja to help understand the child who hid the message. Soon, however, they find themselves at the heart of another shocking case.

For the discovery of the letter coincides with a string of macabre events: body parts found in a garden, followed by the murder of the man who owned the house. His initials are BT, one of the names on the note.

Huldar and Freyja must race to identify the writer, the victims and the murderer before the rest of the targets are killed....

good

t was a solid procedural, though the characters could stand to develop better communication skills. The sketchy romance between the two protagonists gets maddening. And the thing with Edla-the-repellant was pretty cringeworthy.
The case was interesting, and the solution was a bit unexpected, with a final grim reveal at the end.
I like the introduction of the niece, who provides some comic relief, but I hate "perma-scowl." I feel like there has to have been a better translation than that stupid, cutesy, oft-repeated term.
But yeah, a pretty decent mystery.
