    Morten Storm was an unlikely Jihadi. A six-foot-one red-haired Dane, Storm spent his teens in and out of trouble. A book about the Prophet Mohammed prompted his conversion to Islam, and Storm sought purpose in a community of believers. He attended a militant madrasah in Yemen, named his son Osama, and became close friends with Anwar al-Awlaki, the American-born terrorist cleric. But after a decade of Jihadi life, he not only repudiated extremism but, in a quest for atonement, became a double agent for the CIA and British and Danish intelligence.

    I en søvnig, dansk provinsby i bor den selvoptagede og dovne smedemester Julius Nielsen. Intet passer ham så godt som at spejde veltilfreds ud over landsbyen med en øl i hånden og hånden på den velvoksne vom. Hårdt arbejde passer hverken mester eller smedesvenden Ivar, så da den unge smedelaerling Karl kommer til byen, er det lige som om forsynet smiler lunt til dem begge. For kommunen har bestilt et gittervaerk, og så fint arbejde har man ikke forstand på i smedjen.
