Newly arrived from London, Ellie James, a young investigative journalist, has just moved to Sweden with Johan, her boyfriend. She discovers the country and its customs.
At a traditional party, she meets Johan’s best friends Krister, Liv, and Mia. They have known each other since childhood and are very close. Ellie finds it difficult to fit in and goes for a walk on the beach. It is there that she will make a gruesome discovery.
A few days later, she learns that the victim was a young woman, named Sanna, who had been missing for a few months. When she discovers that the missing woman is Johan’s former girlfriend, Ellie wonders if he has hidden other things from her… Her journalistic instincts are awakened and she conducts her own investigation at her own risk in a country where she doesn’t speak the language and where she doesn’t know anyone.
Johan. The love of her life. Is he the perfect man or has Ellie discovered the perfect crime?
