    On a frosty January day in Bergen, private detective Varg Veum is visited by a prostitute. Her friend Margrethe hasn't been seen for days.

Shortly after taking the case, Veum is confronted with a brutal reality. He soon finds the first body - and it won't be the last either. His investigation leads him into a dark subculture where corrupted idealism has had deadly consequences.
