The Wailing Girl

In these three specially-commissioned tales by Heidi Amsinck, Denmark is a mysterious place of twilight and shadows: a mysterious place where strange and sometimes dark things happen.

At the castle at Amalieholm, legend has it that you can hear a girl crying at night, supposedly the ghost of a young maid who was drowned in the moat by a nobleman after giving birth to his child. Magnus, the castle guide, doesn't believe in ghosts, but wonders what would happen if the castle owner, 95-year-old Baroness Feltenborg, could be made to believe in the wailing girl?
