Overview Den mørke hemmeligheten i Tysfjord

In 2016 eleven women and men in Tysfjord stood forth in media to tell about sexual violations. The police investigation revealed a total of one hundred and fifteen cases of sexual violations, most of them with connections to the lule sami environment in Tysfjord. This is the story of how a community could fail in such a way, told by the victims. It is a story of the responsibilites adults have for children, and the old conflict between the big community and smaller, closed environments.

Bare sjelden leser jeg noe så rystende som «Den mørke hemmeligheten i Tysfjord».
