Together with the FBI, the Norwegian police are up against an enemy far more powerful than they can imagine: a man using his global network of pawns to plot the biggest terror attack on American soil since 9/11. Inger Johanne is drawn into the epicenter of the conflict when she crosses paths with Madam President, and the secrets both women thought was buried and forgotten forever suddenly come back to haunt them.
