Overview Natteløperen

Meidel Jonsson finds his grandfather dead in his house. Suddenly 18-year-old Meidel is all alone in the world. In his head he has many compartments: one for play, one for good ideas, one for causing havoc. As well as a compartment for pain and realisation, which he wants to close off forever. Now Meidel has nothing else to lose. But when he goes shopping at the local grocery store, he begins talking to the young girl behind the till and suddenly senses an opportunity.

Investigator Eddie Feber is a force of nature at work, and at home he has a house full of children and his wife Karmen who writes crime novels. In their town, several people start getting visits at night by a shining appearance holding a weapon. Feber doesn’t have much to work with, except for a note that says only ‘833’. Feber has his very own methods, and some will claim he often crosses the line.
