Raging revenge in 20 chapters: a woman seeks vengeance for the loss of her daughter in this dynamic, brilliantly composed psycho-thriller.

Five years ago, Nina and Oskar lost their daughter during a holiday in Montenegro. While Oskar has found a way to deal with the situation, for Nina the pain has never ceased. Cigarettes and medication define her life, the loss has become an obsession. Off her own bat, she returns to Montenegro – to seek the help of a local policeman and take revenge on the man who took her daughter.
