They say Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and it seems the devil himself has nothing on Norah Jones.

For her new video “Miriam,” Jones takes one of her Danger Mouse-produced album’s creepiest, most unsettling songs and gives it a full noir treatment. It’s a slow-burning clip with a couple of shocking reveals and a juicy coda. Check it out over at  Spin.

Did you see that one coming?

The clip has a great vibe to it, and it lays out an air of awesomely benign evil—just like the song itself. Jones does an exquisite job of keeping right on the edge of serial killer psychosis, and the lyric, “Miriam/ That’s such a pretty name/ And I’ll keep saying it/ Until you die” might be the most haunting, unnerving delivery of 2012.

What do you think of “Miriam”? And has Jones’ excellent Little Broken Hearts stuck with you? Sound off in the comments.
