Synopsis

A CHILLING NEW NORDIC THRILLER FROM THE WINNER OF THE GLASS KEY AWARD 2023

After being involved in a street brawl, Homicide detective Jessica Niemi is ordered to take leave from work and retreats to a remote island in the Åland archipelago to rest.

Three elderly visitors also arrive - former refugees who fled Finland as children during the Second World War and stayed for a few months at the local orphanage.

Jessica's peace is soon shattered when one of them is found dead, and she can't resist conducting an informal investigation of her own. The refugees are convinced her death is related to the local legend of a girl called Maija who disappeared one night and was never seen again, but Jessica soon uncovers shocking revelations about the orphanage's past including several mysterious murders.

As a fierce storm hits the island, Jessica is unsure what is real and what is not. Can she not only find a killer, but finally silence her own ghosts once and for all . . .
