Lemma 57.78.6. Let $X$ be a normal integral affine scheme with separably closed function field. Let $Z \subset X$ be a closed subscheme. For any finite abelian group $M$ we have $H^1_{\acute{e}tale}(Z, \underline{M}) = 0$.

**Proof.**
By Cohomology on Sites, Lemma 21.4.3 an element of $H^1_{\acute{e}tale}(Z, \underline{M})$ corresponds to a $\underline{M}$-torsor $\mathcal{F}$ on $Z_{\acute{e}tale}$. Such a torsor is clearly a finite locally constant sheaf. Hence $\mathcal{F}$ is representable by a scheme $V$ finite étale over $Z$, Lemma 57.63.4. Of course $V \to Z$ is surjective as a torsor is locally trivial. Since $V \to Z$ has a section by Lemma 57.78.5 we are done.
