WHY HAS THOMAS DENISEN BEEN MUTILATED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TIVEDEN NATIONAL PARK?
WHAT IS THE RUNIC PAINTING DISCOVERED IN HIS CAR?
AND WHO IS THE GIRL ULRIKA HITCHHIKING IN THE RAIN?
When Hasse Almquist, a detective with a tarnished reputation is brought in to investigate a murder at an ancient site of pagan worship, Troll Church Hill, little can he know nothing is at it seems. The site of a macabre crime where Danish art gallery owner Thomas Denisen has been discovered dead, his eyes removed and nails hammered through his feet, the hallowed pagan ground in the middle of the Swedish Tiveden National Park draws troublesome connections to a remote and disturbing past. The detective will accept too late, that he has himself been a contributing factor to the murder, opening Pandora’s Box.
