    In northern Iceland, 1829, Agnes Magnúsdóttir is condemned to death for her part in the brutal murder of her lover. Agnes is sent to wait out her final months on the farm of district office Jón Jónsson, his wife and their two daughters. Horrified to have a convicted murderer in their midst, the family avoid contact with Agnes. Only Tóti, the young assistant priest appointed Agnes’ spiritual guardian, is compelled to try to understand her. As the year progresses and the hardships of rural life force the household to work side by side, Agnes’ story begins to emerge and with it the family’s terrible realization that all is not as they had assumed.

    Story
    If you could sum up Burial Rites in three words, what would they be?

    I was taken in by the main character and wanted to hear her story as much as she wanted to tell it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Burial Rites?

    I could have cried when Agnes realized what kind of man Natan was.


    Which character – as performed by Morven Christie – was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the two girls and the way they gave some relief from the intensity and bleakness of the novel.


    If you could take any character from Burial Rites out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Margret. I would like to hear more of her thoughts. She also had a death sentence of a different kind.
