Kalmann is the self-appointed Sheriff of Raufarhofn. Day by day, he treks the wide plains which surround the almost deserted village, hunts Arctic foxes and lays bait to catch the Greenland sharks he turns into the Icelandic fermented delicacy, hakarl. Kalmann has everything under control. Inside his head, however, the wheels sometimes spin backwards. One winter, after he discovers a pool of blood in the snow, the swiftly unfolding events threaten to overwhelm him. But he knows that his native wisdom and pure-hearted courage will see him through. How can anything go wrong with Kalmann in charge?
