Synopsis of The Silence of the Sea

In The Silence of the Sea, an unmanned luxury yacht crashes into the harbour wall in Reykjavík. What happened to the crew, and to the young family who were on board when it left Lisbon?

Thóra Gudmundsdóttir is hired by the father’s parents to investigate.

What should she make of the rumours saying that the vessel was cursed?

Where is Karítas, the glamorous wife of the yacht’s former owner?

And whose is the body that has washed up further along the shore?

Synopsis of the book, by Yrsa Sigurðardóttir, taken from Amazon


Complicated plot. The interest is maintained throughout the novel, but the part where the “dead” narrate the story is too long. In the end, it’s not very clear how the “living” come to know about everything the reader finds out throughout the novel and the “living” can’t know.

Still, the interest doesn’t decline.

I recommend it.
