Summary
"Aldis hates her job working in a juvenile detention center in rural Iceland. The boys are difficult, the owners are unpleasant, and there are mysterious noises at night. And then two of the boys go astray. Decades later, single father Odinn is looking into alleged abuse at the center. The more he finds out, though, the more it seems the odd events of the 1970s are linked to the accident that killed his ex-wife. Was her death something more sinister?"--

Summary
In Icelandic author Yrsa Sirgurdardottir's The Undesired, investigator Odinn Hafteinsson takes over a cold case involving boys from a home for delinquents who died in the 1970s. Their deaths connect unexpectedly to a present-day crime -- and raise the possibility that Odinn's dead wife Lara is seeking revenge for her murder. This leisurely-paced tale presents a chilling ghost story in the guise of a twisting, creepy thriller. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
