Murder on Faroe Island

Hi, I’m officer Burke. My wife and I recently came to the islands, she to study the migratory birds here and me for a new challenge. “Officer let’s go,” said my senior, “We’ve got a call of a murder.”

We quickly reached the start of the forest where the body was found and saw suspicious Sam next to a few disgruntled people explaining to the crowd how he caught them red-handed committing murder for black magic. We pushed out way through all ready to investigate until we came face to face with a grinning white face with glassy eyes. Just between you and me I’d have to admit that the sight of that certainly freaked me out.

On further inspection and questioning we realised that it was a mannequin and that the people committing ‘black magic’ were actually tourists celebrating an early Halloween.

They of course had to pay a fine for using public property without permission while suspicious Sam was let off with a warning to not spread such a rumour again.

Today Pegman is visiting the Faroe Islands.


The photo prompts​ have been given by Liz Young at the Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields and by wildverbs at the Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers (FFfAW).

(PS : Sorry for overshooting the word limit will  shorten it later in the week.)

  2. Great story! I’m glad it was just a manequin and not a real person! LOL! I see where your story can be shortened easily. Thank you for letting me know!


  3. Very clever and imaginative take …… on both the prompts.
