Oliver takes a dramatic spill from his bike – but who is behind it?
Oliver falling off his bike may be just a small thing, but the one who dug all the deep holes that caused his fall should at least pay for a new bicycle wheel. Tiril and Oliver’s investigation into the culprit’s identity leads them to the deserted Rønneberget and a nighttime encounter with the Shadowman. The case then takes an unexpected turn when they find a mysterious map. To solve the puzzle they will have to think outside the box as they scrutinize both past and present.
