Publisher's Summary

From Icelandic author Yrsa Sigurdardottir comes a thrilling and unique audiobook - the first in a stunning new series from the author of The Silence of the Sea, winner of the 2015 Petrona Award for Best Scandinavian Crime Novel. 
The only person who might have the answers to a baffling murder case is the victim's seven-year-old daughter, found hiding in the room where her mother died. And she's not talking. 
Newly-promoted, out of his depth, detective Huldar turns to Freyja for her expertise with traumatized young people. Freyja, who distrusts the police in general and Huldar in particular, isn't best pleased. But she's determined to keep little Margret safe. 
It may prove tricky. The killer is leaving them strange clues: warnings in text messages, sums scribbled on bits of paper, numbers broadcast on the radio. He's telling a dark and secret story - but can they crack the code? And if they do, will they be next? 
The Legacy is the first installment in a fantastic new series featuring the psychologist Freyja and the police officer Huldar.

Yrsa has done it again!

Once again this Icelander has spun a tale that is almost impossible to set down. The murder methods employed are not for the weak at heart but her characters are fully developed and great to know. Can't wait for her next one!
