About this item
After building a career in the galleries and museums of Amsterdam, art theorist Hanna has returned to Iceland to what she hopes will be a posh new job. Though small, the museum in Reykjavik has a sterling reputation—one sure to be burnished by a valuable piece donated by a wealthy patron. Painted by Iceland’s most beloved twentieth-century artist, the acquisition is poised to become the jewel of the museum’s collection—until a conservator announces it’s a fake.
Determined to preserve the museum’s reputation and bolster her own, Hanna delves deep into the shadowy world of art forgery, where she will discover an unexpected truth framed by a half-century of lies.
