When a dead man is found locked in the basement of an abandoned house, deep in the woods, there is no evidence of what happened beyond his name – scratched into the wall before he died. The regional police can’t find anyone who knew him. But no-one knows the locals like Detective Eira Sjödin. When her expert knowledge of her home town is again called in, she knows one of them must have seen something. Then, a shock: before she can uncover the truth, someone close to her disappears. Has he fallen victim to the same criminal they’ve been chasing? And can Eira put the pieces together in time to save him?
