Mohamed Saif Al-Mofty
The Dark Dance

Saif Al-Kadi is a journalist with a comfortable life in Norway. But one day during the summer of 2014 he receives an urgent message from Iraq which makes him travel with haste to his home country. Islamic State has attacked Mosul during the night, leaving his family with no choice but to flee the city.

Little does Saif Al-Kadi know that days later IS kidnaps his autistic nephew and soulmate, Ali. The thought that Ali is in the hands of brutal IS-warlords is impossible to cope with and he sees only one solution: To find Ali and rescue him, in what turns out to be a deadly but highly necessary mission.
