No descriptions found.
In the spring of 1960 three men accidentally discover a decaying body on a deserted island, later identified as the body of a Danish cryptographer who had been missing for several months. An investigation ensues and the case is mysteriously linked to the contents of a medieval manuscript known as the Book of Flatey. Before long another body is found in Flatey. But this time, in the ancient Viking tradition, the victim's back has been mutilated with the blood eagle. Kjartan, the district magistrate's representative sent to investigate the crime, soon finds himself descending into the dark, dangerous world of ancient legends, symbiology and secret societies.
