Sigurbjorn is an architect with big dreams. In the spring of 1953, he is busy planning Iceland’s first department store. However, when the structure is finished and the store is about to open, his 12-year old son is lured inside by a stranger, beaten and sexually assaulted. 

Ólafur Gunnarsson was born in Reykjavík in 1948. He has written poetry, short stories and children’s books but is best known for his novels. With his highly acclaimed trilogy Trolls’ Cathedral (1992), Potter’s Field (1996) and Winter Journey (1999), he has earned a place among the major realists in Icelandic letters.
