Through the investigation she finds herself thrown together with a former lover, Mathias Borch, who now works for Special Branch. When Emilie Zeuthen, the daughter of a wealthy businessman, is kidnapped, the link between the latest series of murders and the apparent suicide of an orphaned teenager becomes clear.
