Northern Iceland, 1829.

A woman condemned to death for murdering her lover.

winter is coming, and with it the execution date.

Only she can know the truth. This is Agnes's story.

Interviews  


Burial Rites is as much a dark love letter to the landscape of Iceland as it is to the life of Agnes Magnúsdóttir

Hannah Kent is an Australian writer. Burial Rites is her first novel.

Editorial reviews (3 reviews)


Burial Rites really is an astonishing achievement in story-telling. It is fascinating, complex and intoxicating and certainly worthy of all the acclaim it is receiving.

For Books' Sake : Burial Rites (September 09, 2013)

There is something so elemental about Burial Rites that it is difficult to capture; it haunts and permeates the senses like fire pit smoke, lingering in the memory for days after finishing.

This is a beautiful, haunting tale and the fact that it is Kent’s debut makes her achievement all the more astonishing.
