As a part of her job as a nature consultant, a young woman goes back to the island and house where she grew up to evaluate the site where the municipality is planning to build a new museum. She is staying at home with her mother, where memories of her dead brother are constantly popping up: in the smell of his room, his old anorak. Edge of the Sea is a stylish and sharp novel about missing – and remembering – whether it is in the form of rooms, clothes, cartoons, or an old Beetle that's still sitting in the garage. Halås has her own way of capturing memories and feelings.
