An evocative and historical crime novel set in Hurumlandet at the end of the 19th century. A man is found on a clearing in the woods - seemingly peaceful, with a gentle expression on his face. But the back of his head is crushed and his clothes soaked in blood. Sheriff Thomas Tinnvik bearly manages to keep the nausea away. Interrogation at the nearest farm reveals that the deceased is Lars Holte, a man who traveled to Canada ten years ago and has not been seen since.
