On an inter-county bus ride headed for Bergen, Varg Veum happens to notice three people at a remote intersection. A few days later, he recognizes one of them under the headline YOUNG MAN MISSING.
The three were due to take part in a demonstration against a fish-farming facility in the tiny village of Solvik north of Bergen. Veum’s natural curiosity leads him to Solvik and the chance discovery of a body in the sea. Is there any connection between the discovery of the body and the death of a journalist who was digging into the fish farm’s operations two years earlier?
How many secrets lay hidden in Solvik, a place where two families are contending for salmon fortunes, and where rumours spread like wildfire?
This is the twentieth novel in the Varg Veum series.
