Reggae Noir. I have never used CTRL-C on her name. Call it method songwriting.

lyrics

Kristjana Guttmundsdottir
Deftly alit from the steaming train
Kristjana Guttmundsdottir
Soon enough ne'er to be seen again

Kristjana Guttmundsdottir
Breathed in the night air cloaked in myst'ry
Kristjana Guttmundsdottir
Soon to be sent to the realm of hist'ry

The weary typewriter went chinkity-chun!
A t wandered errant - too late, it was done!
One, two, and the ribbon reluctantly spun
And started again from the square we call one

Kristjana Guttmundsdottir
Planted a heel at the platform's rim
Kristjana Guttmundsdottir
Vanishing soon in the air so dim

Kristjana Guttmundsdottir
Visions of murderers crossed her mind
Kristjana Guttmundsdottir
Soon to the depths to be consigned

The weary typewriter went clickety-clack!
A J wandered errant - alas and alack!
One, two, and the scissors went snickety-snack!
She left the world, never to be coming back!

Kristjana Guttmundsdottir
Held in a hasty finger's thrall
Kristjana Guttmundsdottir
Sent to hell in a paper ball

Girl detective Anna Johnsson
Deftly alit from the steaming train
Our new hero Anna Johnsson
A soul reborn with a simpler name

(A soul reborn with a simpler name)
