Publisher Comments:

Interludes of memory and fancy are mixed with a murder investigation in this panoramic vision of contemporary Norway. Jonas Wergeland, a successful TV producer and well-recognized ladies man, returns home to find his wife murdered and his life suddenly splayed open for all to see.

His quest for the killer becomes a quest into himself, his past, and everything that has made him the man he seems to be.
