Er hatte ein sympathisches Äußeres, ging leicht gebeugt, war aber in jungen Jahren zweifelsohne groß gewachsen und von stattlicher Statur gewesen. Er verfügte über ein kräftiges Stimmorgan und ein väterliches Auftreten, obwohl er selbst nie Kinder gehabt hatte. Er wohnte in einem eleganten alten Haus am Hólavegur mit Aussicht über den Fjord. Das Haus war in einem guten Zustand, und an der Seite befand sich eine große Garage, wo sein alter, roter Benz stand. Die Souterrainwohnung war, so wie Ugla es verstanden hatte, hin und wieder vermietet worden, entweder an zugezogene Arbeitskräfte oder manchmal auch an Künstler, die in Ruhe und Frieden, von den Bergen eingeschlossen, arbeiten wollten.

Sie fuhren einen Berghang entlang, wobei der Wagen auf der Straße nur wenig bis gar keinen Platz hatte, rechter Hand standen die schneeweißen Berge, prachtvoll und angsteinflößend zugleich, linker Hand ging es beängstigend steil direkt in den aufgewühlten Fjord hinunter.
Er hatte sich daran gewöhnt, dass die Tageszeitungen jeweils erst nach Mittag an diesen abgelegenen Fjord gelangten. Wobei das keine Rolle spielte; es passte einfach zu allem anderen. Hier verging die Zeit langsamer, die Hast war geringer als in der Hauptstadt. Die Zeitungen kamen einfach, wenn sie kamen. Er musste eine Weile warten, bis Kristín sich meldete. �Hi, ich bin bei der Arbeit – konnte nicht sofort antworten. « Er zögerte und schaute zum Küchenfenster hinaus. Es lag tiefer Schnee über dem Dorf.
