Drapa : A Murder Mystery, Paperback / softback Book

Drapa : A Murder Mystery Paperback / softback


Celebrated Icelandic writer Gerdur Kristny's Drapa is a novel-poem which takes its form from Old Norse shield poetry and its mood from modern Nordic crime.

But the poem is no fiction: it is about a real woman's murder in the city of Reykjavik, and, through this lens, about all women's deaths.

This is Viking poetry at its most contemporary.
