Police Officer Maria Wern and her colleagues don’t know how to deal with the bestiality facing them.

A similar murder had been committed in Uppsala nine years earlier. That time, the murderer had been killed in a car fire. Is it possible that some connection exists?

Thanks to Maria’s efforts and stubbornness, the picture of the murderer starts to emerge – a person disappointed and degraded to the point where reality gives way to insanity. But it’s a struggle in which Maria comes close to losing everything important to her.
