In 1995, 17-year-old Isabell Lilleng from Rømskog disappears. Robert
Taule has recently been released from prison after a rape conviction and immediately becomes the main suspect. Then he too disappears.
After the sheriff retires, he becomes obsessed with solving the case. A life-threatening illness means his time is short. How close to the truth can he get before he's gone forever?
In the present day, Isabell's remains are found. Anton Brekke is hired
by truecrime journalist Kristian Bolstad, who wants to make a podcast about
the disappearance. They start treading a new, unknown path to
solve the case before the police do. But Isabell's killer is willing to
do anything to stay hidden.
