WHITE SHADOW 2015 is the second part of Roy Jacobsen's trilogy whose first part THE UNSEEN introduced us to Ingrid Barrøy a girl born and raised on a tiny island in northern Norway THE UNSEEN was nominated for the 2017 Man Booker International prize and focused on the small world of Barrøy an isolated and rugged island in the 1910s and 20s In WHITE SHADOW the external world cannot be kept at bay any longer because the Second World War is raging in Europe and has reached the northern shores of Norway The country is now occupied by German forcesOne day a ship the Rigel sinks near the island and Ingrid finds bodies awash on the shore and a single survivor whom she nurses back to health He is young and handsome he seems to be a Russian prisoner of war and although he cannot speak Norwegian or German they become lovers Eventually Ingrid reports her discovery of the dead because she has to and the authorities become suspicious So the handsome POW must flee before he is discoveredSuddenly the reader encounters an unexpected and puzzling chain of events One day Ingrid wakes up in a hospital far from the mainland Neither she nor the reader know how she got there A good part of the novel involves Ingrid’s trip home to Barrøy and her slowly returning memories which come back in disjointed flashbacks at unexpected times WHITE SHADOW has elements of a thriller and a war time romance but mostly it is a novel about the stoic community of the northern Norwegian islands the brutality and the cost of war on civilians and the plight of the refugees which had to flee from the devastation left by the occupying army It is a gripping novel written in a spare and evocative prose with beautiful descriptions of the landscape and life in those harsh conditions which I highly recommend
