Davidsen writes like an assassin. Brilliant! More, more!’ Fay Weldon
One of Denmark’s top crime writer’ Joan Smith, Sunday Times

Kosovo, spring 1999, and the impossible happens: a NATO plane is shot down. Someone – perhaps a Dane – has leaked information to the enemy.

Meanwhile, In Bratislava, Teddy Pedersen, a middle-aged, Danish university lecturer, receives a visit from an Eastern European woman who turns out to be his half-sister. Father to both of them was a Danish SS officer who had officially been declared dead in 1952, but had in fact lived on in Yugoslavia for many years. And in Copenhagen, Teddy’s older sister is arrested on suspicion of being a Stasi agent,

Teddy – and the Danish intelligence service – race to investigate the relationship between these two women – the woman in Denmark and the woman in Bratislava. The link between them proves to have far-reaching personal and political consequences.
