En død mann sitter på Varg Veums venteværelse. Mannen er en lektor ved navn Erlend Ekerhovd, som kanskje har mistet livet fordi han ville finne ut mer om en kvinnelig bekjents selvmord. På Mørekysten 14 år tidligere gikk kvinnen på sjøen, men Ekerhovd klarte ikke å slå seg til ro med at det var selvmord. Trådene fører tilbake til et radikalt studentkollektiv i Bergen, der de begge bodde på 70-tallet. Hva er det med dette dødsfallet som ikke tåler dagens lys? Bit for bit nærmer Varg Veum seg mysteriets kjerne, den mørke hemmeligheten som ikke må avdekkes for noen pris. 307 s. Ib. 2004

Mette jouait gentiment devant la fenêtre de la cuisine. Soudain, elle ne fut plus là, seul son nounours traînait encore dans le bac à sable.

Le privé norvégien lutte pour ne pas succomber à la bouteille d'aquavit qui le nargue. Il se lance dans une enquête où raviver les souvenirs de chacun n'est pas une mince affaire. Dans ce polar de haut vol, Varg Veum revisite les communautés hippies de la fin des années 1970, icônes de partage et d'ouverture d'esprit. Ou de secrets et mensonges ?
