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.

OK but not the best Scandinavian Noir

I am a fan of Scandinavian noir and this was recommended for that category...However the Scandanavianess of this book is non-existant. There was a little mystery, the story is a bit depressing but even so it held my interest till the end. The ending was was ..."meh" . I feel like this book could have been so much more. The narrator made the male voice very boring.

This is so good. Just start listening and let the author's story carry you along. When you wonder at some of the detailed parts that seem to slow down the action - just stay with it. No gore. Yes, plot ywists and surprises.
