(From the publisher):
Henning Juul is a veteran investigative crime reporter in Oslo, Norway. A horrific fire killed his six-year-old son, cut scars across his face and ended his marriage, and on his first day back on the job after the terrible tragedy a body is discovered in one of the city's public parks. A beautiful female college student has been stoned to death and buried up to her neck, her body left bloody and exposed. The brutality of the crime shakes the whole country, but dispite his own recent trama-and the fact that his es-wife's new boyfriend is also on the case-Henning is given the assignment. When the woman's boyfriend, a Pakistani native, is arrested, Henning feels certain the man is innocent. This was not simply a Middle Eastern-style honor killing in the face of adultery-it was a far more complicated gesture, and one that will drag Henning into a darkness he's never dreamed of.
