The shipowner, Herman Nordahl, dies in a fire at his apartment. The autopsy reveals that he has been tortured with a tool called the Somali Virgin, which has been frequently used in Africa during dictatorial rule. Pastor Hellener, who was supposed to preside over Nordahl’s funeral, never shows up. Instead, he is found dead in a snowy field.
Meanwhile, Tom Hartmann is in the Arabian Gulf aboard the oil tanker, Fenris Fighter, in order to write a novel. The tanker is hijacked by Somali pirates who embark on a journey across the Red Sea. Alone aboard the ship are Tom Hartmann and a young boy. Can Hartmann prevent the impending catastrophe?
