He hasn’t been seen in Reykjavík for the last three months. But some of the others are still here. ’ said Ísak. ‘Like Gabríel Örn Bergsson, my former boss. When he was encouraging me to take out a loan from Ódinsbanki to buy shares in it to prop up the stock price, he was selling those very same shares himself. When he made bad loans to companies in the UK, it was me who took the blame, even though I had told him not to do the deals. ’ ‘Sounds like a nice guy,’ said Björn. Harpa shook her head.
Einar was looking straight at her, his blue eyes seeing right into her soul. He knows I’m lying, Harpa thought in panic. Just like he knew I was lying when I talked to the police about Gabríel Örn. She felt herself blush. She stepped back and collapsed on a kitchen chair and started to sob. Einar poured a cup of coffee for both of them and sat down opposite her. ’ Harpa shook her head. She tried, and succeeded, to control her tears. Her father waited. ’ she asked him. She meant the fly-fishing.

She lurched into a low wall surrounding a small car park. On the wall was an empty Thule beer bottle. She picked it up, took three steps forward and, aiming for the bald spot on the back of Gabríel Örn’s head, brought it crashing down. He staggered, swayed to the right and fell, his head bouncing off an iron bollard at the entrance of the little car park with a sickening crack.
