|Series:||Ellen Tamm Thriller Serie|
'Death, death, death,' she whispered to herself a But it was already too late. The panic was growing inside her. On a cold and stormy Friday in May, a young girl disappears without a trace from outside Stockholm's Royal Tennis Hall. The missing girl is Lycke, and assigned to report on her story is TV4's hot-headed crime reporter Ellen Tamm. As the police begin their search, Ellen starts her own investigation, delving into Lycke's life- her family, the nanny, the kids who taunted her at school. As Ellen is drawn deeper into a tangle of secrets, lies, and betrayals - and frustrated by the odd behaviour of Lycke's family, as well as corrupt police, her upstart new boss, and the disturbing threats being made against her - she becomes more and more possessed by the task she has been given, tortured by the echoes of her own past, of the darkness that haunts her. Will she find Lycke before it is too late for either of them?
