    Suecia, 1855. El ministro de Justicia recibe un mensaje aterrador: ha habido una masacre en una montaña de Laponia.

El ministro envía a la zona a Magnus, un geólogo, con la tarea de investigar lo acontecido. Pero hay otros motivos por los cuales visitar Blackåsen, un lugar que esconde demasiados secretos. Magnus no viajará solo.

Then even the oldest enemies will gather. But now it is summer, and new settlers are come.

    Sweden, 1855. 'Worst thing I ever saw...' The Minister of Justice receives a disturbing message. A massacre on one of Lapland's mountains - a priest, a law enforcement officer and a local settler have been slaughtered by one of the indigenous Sami people. The murderer is in custody; he refuses to talk. The Minister dispatches his son-in-law, a geologist, to investigate, for there is more than one reason to visit Blackåsen: it is a mountain with many secrets, a mountain that has never been mapped.
