In a Copenhagen park the body of an elderly lady is discovered. Across town a crazed motorist hunts a young woman. The attacks seem random, but are these brutal acts of violence in fact related? Detective Carl Mørck of Department Q, Copenhagen´s cold cases division, is charged with solving the mystery.
Back at their headquarters, Carl and his team are under pressure to deliver results: failure to meet his superiors´ expectations will mean the end of Department Q. And above all, Rose struggles to deal with the resurfacing of her past - a past in which a terrible crime may have been committed.
The master of the Nordic thriller returns with the seventh instalment of the gripping Department Q series.
