A married couple check into a hotel with their 15-month-old son. The next morning, the boy falls from the sixth-floor balcony and dies instantly. His parents' explanations differ substantially. Both of them have something to hide. Who has the right to have a child? How could a child die in such a way? This time, Konrad Sejer knows it is extremely important to find out the truth. The Darkening is a masterful crime novel and a dangerous marital drama.
