At the foot of the Kollen Mountain lies a small village where the children play unafraid in the streets. But tranquillity is irrecoverably shattered when a young woman´s naked body is found by the lake during the search for another missing girl. Inspector Sejer - smart, tough and enigmatic - is called to investigate. Only he can uncover the dark secrets of this quiet community, hidden by deep family ties.
This is the second book in the series about Inspector Sejer.
