Constable Páll Gylfason gets a dispatch call to investigate a suspected homicide in a remote farmstead. When he gets there,  he’s surprised to find that Sergeant Magnus Jonson is already at the scene.
Magnus identifies the dead man as his estranged grandfather But as Páll begins to review the crime scene he realises that Magnus’ testimony and the forensics at the scene don’t add up.
