A six-year-old girl is found hanging from a tree. Around her neck is an airline tag which says 'I'm travelling alone'. A special homicide unit in Oslo is re-opened with veteran police investigator Holger Munch at the helm. He must convince his erstwhile partner, Mia Krüger, an extremely talented but eccentric investigator, to leave the solitary island to which she has retreated in order to take her own life. When scrutinising the murder files, Mia spots the number one carved into the dead girl's fingernail. She returns to duty to prevent more little girls falling victim to a terrifying, revenge-driven serial killer.

We highly recommend this book, multi layered with lots of twists and turns. The blurb is rather misleading - it's not as dark and gruesome as it sounds. The author very cleverly builds up the tension throughout the book. A very good read.
