Ophelia and Bernard are on Fingal’s island, where the top secret Crypto organisation is located. Why does Crypto want to keep all underwater monsters secret? And why does the organisation feel so familiar to Ophelia? It seems that Crypto is only telling part of the truth, and Ophelia decides to explore the island on her own. But time is running out, especially when it turns out that the aquarium boss is on his way!

Frost Mist is the fourth book in the Crypto series. The graphic novel is written and drawn by Hans Jørgen Sandnes, who is also behind the illustrations for the popular Detective Agency no. 2 books
