"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? Yrsa Sigurdardottir is a huge European bestseller both with her crime and horror novels. You might want to sleep with the light on after reading The Undesired. "-- Provided by publisher.

Chilling, and not just because the setting is Iceland, but tersely told as well, by unhappy and often deeply disturbed people. As a father investigates the cold case deaths of two young boys in a bleak juvenile home, threads inexplicably lead back to his ex-wife's questionable death. This will not end well.

I always enjoy this author's books on the attorney/accidental detective, Thora Gudmundsdottir, and her low-key writing style, but the same style just doesn't seem to translate that well to the horror genre?
Some may enjoy this, and I'm not recommending against it, but wasn't all that spectacular . . . .
