On a long, cold Icelandic night in March 1920, Gunnar, a hermit blacksmith, finds himself with an unwanted lodger – Sigurd, an injured stranger who offers a story from the past. But some stories, even those of an old man who can barely walk, are too dangerous to hear. They might alter the listener’s life forever... by ending it.

Others are keen on changing Gunnar’s life as well. Overbearing Brynhildur is set on marrying him. The Conservative Women of Iceland are determined to make him a model Christian. Gunnar’s doctor is preparing an intervention. An enigmatic elf might exist... or not. And the demons in his mind never leave for long… With so many keen to change Gunnar’s fate, will he find strength and courage to write his own story?

Bjørn Larssen's debut novel is an otherworldly, emotive Icelandic saga – a story of love and loneliness, relief and suffering, hatred… and hope.
