With traces of the same sedative in the victims' bloodstreams, pressure is mounting on the police to put the killer behind bars. But the Oslo police force has another problem: the only man who can solve the case doesn't want to be found.

When he learns his father is on his deathbed, Harry reluctantly agrees to return to Oslo. He has no intention of working on the case, but his curiosity gets the better of him when a prominent MP is found brutally murdered in a city park. Soon Harry is caught up in the web of a violent killer who will stop at nothing to escape justice.
