Publisher's Summary

Aldis hates her job working in a juvenile detention center in rural Iceland. The boys are difficult, the owners are unpleasant, and there are mysterious noises at night. And then two of the boys go astray....
Decades later single father Odinn is looking into alleged abuse at the center. The more he finds out, though, the more it seems the odd events of the 1970s are linked to the accident that killed his ex-wife. Was her death something more sinister?
Yrsa Sigurdardottir is a huge European best seller with both her crime and her horror novels. You might want to sleep with the light on after listening to The Undesired.

Male narrator made ruined the book for me.

I love the novels by Yrsa Sigurdardottir so I was excited to listen to her latest novel. BUT the male narrator's style made it impossible to listen; so bad that I had to return the novel. His intonation was so flat and without inflection or any energy (emotional or breath support-wise) that I found it physically unnerving. His narration was made even worse by its contrast to the female narrator who was very good. Think I will read novel with my own eyes.

Chilling, excellent writing.

Although the storytelling of the male narrator is quite flat, it didn't bother me. The female narrator spoke of the past, the male narrator of the present, and the story speaks for itself. A fascinating story in a fascinating country. Chilling, but not sensationalist. Intriguing and compelling to the last moment.
