Bea Britt lives alone in her grandmother's house in Oslo. Early one morning, there are people out in the garden, and drama unfolding on her living room TV. Volunteers are scouring the neighbouring woods looking for Emilie, a twelve-year-old girl who has disappeared. Emilie's rucksack is found in Bea's garden. Bea is first a suspect, then a witness, and finally a potential second victim. As the mystery over Emilie's disappearance deepens, Bea's spiralling doubts and suspicions take over.

I tried hard to get into this book and failed. In the end I gave up which I have never done before. Story was achingly slow to develop and tone really down trodden. Shame.
