Danish journalist Heloise Kaldan is caught in a nightmare. One of her sources lied in an exposé, and she could lose her job over it. Worse, she begins receiving cryptic and unsettling letters from Anna Kiel, a woman who disappeared three years ago after the stabbing of a young lawyer. Detective Erik Schäfer is pursuing a new lead to Kiel's whereabouts when the reporter who originally wrote about the case is found murdered. Has Kiel struck again, or is there more than one killer? And why do the clues point to Heloise? Anne Mette Hancock won the Danish Crime Academy's debutant prize for this first Kaldan and Schäfer mystery.
"Gripping, endearing, dark, and funny…. Kaldan and Schafer are my new favorite crime-solving duo."—Harlan Coben
