There's no rest for Carol Reed in her seventeenth Swedish adventure, a compelling new mystery that refuses to pull any emotional punches.
A part of the national forest has been closed down for almost a decade due to a planned controlled burning. When the area was opened up recently, the body of a deceased elderly man was found close to a disused animal feeding station. The name and address of Carol's friend Stina was found in the man's pocket, although he was totally unknown to Stina.
Unravelling the connection between the dead man and Stina leads Carol to a summer colony which has been closed down by the authorities, and where no humans have set foot in over 20 years.
