Gruesome happenings in the quiet town of Larvik. Only one man is capable of solving them: Chief Inspector William Wisting.

Before long, more bodies are found. Media frenzy sweeps the locals into panic. And when Wisting's investigation leads him to a deadly underground crime ring, he fears the whole town may be in danger.

But at the heart of it is the gang's elusive leader: The Night Man.

Who Wisting must find if he wants to stop the murders.

That is, if The Night Man doesn't get to him first . . .
