In northern Iceland, 1829, Agnes Magn#65533;sd#65533;ttir is condemned to death for her part in the brutal murder of two men.Agnes is sent to wait out the months leading up to her execution on the farm of district officer J#65533;n J#65533;nsson, his wife and their two daughters. Horrified to have a convicted murderess in their midst, the family avoid contact with Agnes - until one winter night, she begins her whispered confession to them, and they realise that all is not as they had assumed.Based on a true story, Burial Rites is an astonishing and moving novel about the truths we claim to know and the ways in which we interpret what we're told.
