Construction tycoon Birger Bergersen is discovered lying in a pool of his own blood on board a Dakota. More appropriate on a Boeing, or so I thought.”

Not everyone believes that the rather scruffy Evert Karlsen of the Tønsberg constabulary will be capable of solving this mystery without assistance. The case proves to be more challenging than Olivia had anticipated, and it is hardly made easier by the fact that rumours circulating at the police station threaten her relationship with the gorgeous Torstein Krohn.
