She must find the truth about Francesca. Before the past catches up with her...
A tragic past.
Thirty years ago, the body of a teenage boy was found in Gullspång's lake, and his best friend vanished from her home. Paul Bergman's death was ruled a suicide; Francesca was never found.
An unsolved case.
Drawn back to Gullspång, Detective Inspector Charlie Lager is haunted by the strange house she knew as a child, and by the missing girl who once lived there. Convinced that the original investigation was flawed, Charlie is determined to uncover what really happened all those decades ago.
A crime that won't stayed buried.
But her interest in Francesca's disappearance begins to stir up long-hidden resentments and half-forgotten memories. And if the truth is revealed, what will it mean for the living - and for the dead?
