The tenth novel in the K2 series from Hans Olav Lahlum!
It’s 1974 and K2 is now working as a private investigator. One day a young woman named Marlene shows up at his office. She puts a large bank note and a black-white photography on his desk. The man in the photo was convicted in 1963 for the murder of the woman’s older brother, Daniel, and is due to be released the following day. The only problem is that the young woman in K2’s office isn’t sure if the right man was convicted for the murder. She wants to pay K2 to solve the case. Then, the convict surfaces dead shortly after being released. Who's behind it all?
In K2's office, Daniel and Marlene's father also shows up. His wish to get answers to his own sister's disappearance back in 1939 means K2 has to ask his loyal consultant Patricia for help. Who was Daniel? Who killed him and why? And what is the connection between the disappearence in 1939, and the murders in 1963 and 1973?

«Dette er krim skrevet med glimt i øyet.»
«Lahlum skriver familiedrama slik det skal skrives.»
«Jeg kan ikke annet en å bøye meg i støvet for denne fantastiske formidleren av historisk krim.»
«forfatterens historiske bakteppe og tydelige klassestandpunkt løfter fortellingen og bidrar til å drive handlingen framover.»
«Det er noe deilig nostalgisk og uskyldig over både etterforskningsarbeidet og tidsånden. Og det er ingen grunn til å tro at Lahlum vil stoppe her»Marit Egaas, Stavanger Aftenlad
