The Legacy is the first installment in a fantastic new series featuring the psychologist Freyja and the police officer Huldar. The only person who might have the answers to a baffling murder case is the victim's seven-year-old daughter, found hiding in the room where her mother died. And she's not talking. Newly-promoted, out of his depth, detective Huldar turns to Freyja for her expertise with traumatized young people.

(The first book in the Children's House series)

I didn't enjoy this as much as other Yrsa Sigurðardóttir mysteries I've read, but the last 3 pages bumped the book from 3.5 stars up to 4 stars. Absolutely loved those 3 pages!
The lead detective (Huldar) and the expert in child trauma (Freyja) were interesting and likeable - as was little Margret who hid in terror under her mother's bed while her mother was murdered. Molly, the dog, was a hoot and should have you smiling.
The Legacy (also called DNA) is the first in the Children's House series but the only one (so far) that has been translated into English. Hoping for more of Huldar and Freya!

Enjoyed the writing and characters. However the ending - the reveal of the killer - did not convince me.
