Recently visited northern part of Iceland and found this true story from local people. It is hard to believe this story took place in such an isolated and remote area. There is a memorial marker where the tragedy (murder and burned down the house) happened the town called Illugastadi. I believe that the scenery hasn’t changed much since late 1800’s and when I stood this site, I could picture Agnes who were there on that night. I highly recommend to read this book and visit these places. The movie will be started to film near future, Jennifer Lawrence will play Agnes Magnusdottir.
