The Shadow Killer
In August 1941, a travelling salesman is found shot to death, with a bullet from a Colt .45. Thought to be a victim of the Allied occupation, the murder alerts the attention of detective Flóvent, who teams up with military policeman Thorson to investigate. In a race against time to solve the mystery before Iceland is taken over by the US forces, Flóvent and Thorson quickly unearth a greater crime that links the salesman to a series of shocking experiments, conducted on Icelandic children in the 1930s.
The Shadow District
Set across two different timelines, a brutal killing spree is wreaking havoc in the war-torn capital, following the discovery of a woman, found strangled in the dangerous ‘Shadow District’ of Reykjavik. Flashforward to the present, we meet Konrad, a retired detective, who discovers a link to the WWII crime when a 90-year-old man is smothered to death. Only Konrad can piece together what really happened and identify who the killer really was.
