In response to persistent requests from his former colleague Christian Habersaat, detective Carl Mørck sends Rose, his young Department V partner, to the Danish Island of Bornholm to investigate an old case (a young girl found dead on the branch of a tree). Carl, his team-mate Assad, and Rose find themselves involved in what looks like a murder, with connections to the local police, the islanders Carl once knew well, and members of a sun-worshipping community in search of the most spiritual happiness…
