Vardø, a small town far above the Arctic Circle in the Arctic. The murder of wealthy Norwegian forest owner Olle Trygg disturbs everyone, including Ravna Persen, freshly landed as an intern at the local police station. Ravna doesn't have an easy time with her colleagues: she's a rank rookie, she's a woman, and ... she's Samin. No one takes her seriously when, at the scene of the crime, she thinks she finds evidence of a Sami background to the crime - a line in the ground. When controversial inspector Rune Thor arrives shortly after to take over the case, conflicts come to a head. But Ravna knows much about the secrets of the Sami through her great-grandmother Léna - and that the line points to an ancient ritual designed to prevent the wandering souls of the dead from returning to the world of the living. Whoever committed the crime must know this secret. Elisabeth Herrmann captivates a large audience with her sweeping and atmospheric thrillers. Readers can expect strong heroines, dark and mystical cases, and intelligent high tension. All books can be read independently of each other.
