Summary

Newly appointed District Sheriff Tristan Haraldsen and his wife, Elsebeth, are looking forward to a peaceful semiretirement in the remote fishing village of Djevulsfjord on the stunningly beautiful island of Vagar. But when two boys go missing during the first whale hunt of the season, the repercussions strike at the heart of the isolated coastal community. As he pursues his investigations, Tristan discovers that the Mikkelsen brothers aren’t the first young men to have vanished on Vagar. 

Determined to solve the mystery of Djevulsfjord, yet encountering suspicion wherever he turns, Haraldsen comes to realize he and his wife are not living in the rural paradise they had imagined and that the wild beauty of the region hides a far darker reality.

Not one of his best

So sad always look forward to a David Hewson book but right from the start was disappointed! over one hour of torture to the whales and even Saul Reichlin who is such a good narrator could not lift this book. Sorry I do not want to finish it. hope other readers can get to the end.

Now *this* is a well written, thought provoking mystery. This book grabs the listener and doesn't let go.
Its leisurely pace allows the fascinating characters and rich local color to creep up on the reader. I tried not too stop too often.
