Killer’s Island takes place in the mythic town of Visby on the Swedish island Gotland where a brutal murder has just taken place. The island has long had a myth about the White-Sea Lady. The myth has existed ever since Tjelvar, the first man on Gotland, lit a fire 3,000 years ago and the island rose out of the sea. The story is of a young woman who drowned in the sea on her wedding night and has since tried to lure men down to the deadly waters. The myth comes to life one morning when a nurse is found murdered and placed for public display, dressed as a bride holding flowers.
