Celebrated Icelandic writer Gerður Kristný¿s Drápa is a novel-poem which takes its form from Old Norse shield poetry and its mood from modern Nordic crime. But the poem is no fiction: it is about a real woman's murder in the city of Reykjavik, and, through this lens, about all women¿s deaths. This is Viking poetry at its most contemporary.
