Examining Icelandic lore and a murder mystery in remote Flatey.
We go back to Iceland for our next podcast to talk to the writer of the four-part The Flatey Enigma.
Starring Lára Jóhanna Jónsdóttir as Jóhanna, it tells the story of a single mother who’s forced to go back to her home island of Flatey to tie up her late father’s estate in the early 1970s. There, she encounters prejudice, becomes prime suspect in a murder case and tries to work out an ancient what her linguist professor had been working on prior to his death.
A heady mixture.
Paul talks to writer Margrét Örnólfsdóttir about how storytelling is still so important in Icelandic culture and how the island has changed.
