Read full description of the books:
Skriðþungi mannkynssögunnar: Agnes Lukauskas og Ómar Arnarson kynnast snemma á nístingsköldum sunnudagsmorgni í leigubílaröðinni í Lækjargötu. Þremur árum síðar brennir hann heimili þeirra til grunna, keyrir til Keflavíkur og flýgur úr landi.
Sagan hefst raunar löngu fyrr, sumarið 1941, þegar helmingi bæjarbúa litháíska smábæjarins Jurbarkas var slátrað í skógunum í kring. Tveir langafar Agnesar voru þar – annar skaut hinn. Þremur kynslóðum síðar hefur Agnes gert helförina að miðpunkti lífs síns og sú þráhyggja leiðir hana á fund ísfirska nýnasistans og menntamannsins Arnórs.
Illska er bók um helförina og bók um ástina, um Ísland og Litháen, um Agnesi sem glatar sjálfri sér á milli þess sem Jón Baldvin viðurkennir sjálfstæði Eystrasaltslandanna og litháískir glæpamenn taka að starfa í Reykjavík, um Agnesi sem veit ekki hvort hún heldur með b-heimsmeisturunum í handbolta eða Bogdan Kowalczyk, um Agnesi sem elskar Ómar sem elskar Agnesi sem elskar Arnór.
