Winter should be a quiet time on the holiday island of Gotland. But two crimes shatter the peace for Chief Inspector Anders Knutas.
The first body found is Henry Dahistrom, an alchoholic photographer. He had just had a spectacular success at the races, winning eigthy thousand krona when his horse came home in the fifth race of the day. The next morning his body, badly beated, was discovered in his dark room.
Days later a fourteen-year-old girl is reported missing. She was a lonely child, with few friends and living with her dysfunctional mother. Her only joy is looking after the horses at the local stables.
Can these two crimes be connected? Photographs found in Dahistrom's darkroom suggest a sinister link ...
For the first time in a week the sky cleared.
