"If you find out who set me up, I'll tell you what happened the day your son died. That is the message crime reporter Henning Juul--back at work after being terribly burned and scarred for life in a fire that killed his son--receives from the incarcerated former extortionist Tore Pulli. He is convicted for a murder he claims he didn't commit, and he wants Henning to find the real killer. Truth has never meant more for Henning Juul. And when Pulli is found dead in his prison cell--an apparent suicide--Juul decides to dig deeper. He knows the murders Pulli was convicted of do not bear his signature. And Juul is convinced that Pulli would never take his own life. Juul strikes up a fragile partnership with Iver Gundersen, a journalist now living with Juul's ex-wife. They believe that Pulli's death is part of an internal power struggle in the gang world where the desire for serious money is destroying the traditional, honor-based hierarchy. And in order to find the truth he has to dive deep into an impenetrable world surrounded by a haze of myth. Uncovering more questions than answers, Henning soon realizes that he has to find not one but several killers...killers who have never been more dangerous than they are now. This is an sequel to the internationally acclaimed novel Burned: an epic crime drama and one step further towards solving the riddle of who killed Henning Juul's son"--
