Harry is free to offer assistance, but he has firm instructions to stay out of trouble. The victim is a Norwegian woman who is a minor celebrity back home. Harry befriends one of the lead detectives, and one of the witnesses, as he is drawn deeper into the case. Together, they discover that this is only the latest in a string of unsolved murders, and the pattern points toward a psychopath working his way across the country."@en ;
