Elsa Nygaard’s earliest memory is her mother’s murder, and the killer was Elsa’s father. She is now a single mother and ward of the state here in this unique novel by Agnete Friis. Her violent temper forces her to flee from the authorities with her son, and drives her back to her old home on the coast to lay low. But her old home unlocks suppressed memories brings her back into the arms of her grandmother, who always insisted her father was innocent. As her past is re-kindled, Elsa begins to question her own memories, and the closer she comes to the truth the more she realises that she and her son are in mortal danger.
