On one of his sporadic pilgrimages back to the eastern fjords, Erlendur embarks – almost by chance – on the investigation of a woman who went missing in a storm in 1942. An investigation that spurs memories of his own time lost in a blizzard at a 10 year old, out searching for lost sheep with his father and younger brother Beggi. A double tale of life changing loss in a remote community in rural Iceland.
