Nathan Adamson, former SEAL and now a member of CIA’s Special Operations Group, goes to Siberia to collect evidence of a destructive weapon developed by Russia. However, the safe house at his first rendezvous point is compromised, leaving him to fend for himself in hostile territory.

Nathan’s career has left him with virtually no relatives, except Sophia—a hundred-year-old veteran of the French Resistance who is his friend-cum-mentor. Sophia harbors some secrets which she hasn’t divulged to even her own family. She is gradually losing her battle against dementia.

Mickel Cardell, an infirm ex-soldier and former guard, fishes out a mutilated corpse from the fetid lake of Stockholm. The corpse has no limbs, eyes, teeth, or tongue. The only thing that distinguishes it from a discarded carcass is his mass of golden hair. Cecil Winge is a brilliant consulting detective to the Stockholm police and is suffering from tuberculosis. Together, Winge and Cardell must race against time to discover the monster who ravaged this unidentifiable man. Meanwhile, Kristopher Blix—a joyful fellow—arrives in Stockholm from his village to become a doctor. His initial good fortunes soon take a turn for the worse. In another corner of the city, Anna Stina—a young woman—is unjustly imprisoned in a workhouse.
