A serial rapist wreaks havoc in Copenhagen. The police investigation is hampered not only by the absence of evidence or clues to the attacker's identity, but also by the force's own incompetence and prejudice.
A DNA sample links the attacks to the cold case that caused DI Axel Steen's wife to leave him four years earlier.
Steen becomes obsessed with solving the case, a desperate grasp at reconciliation, but his self-destructive behaviour only serves to alienate his wife further.
His increasingly volatile behaviour also causes his former police partner, now his boss, to question his competence.
Axel Steen's hunt for the rapist is a rollercoaster ride of agonising near misses, heart stopping breakthroughs and a desperate search for a perpetrator who will stop at nothing to outwit the police.
A raw and tense thriller as well as a forensic dissection of a police investigation gone wrong.
As Axel Steen becomes more and more obsessed with the case, it becomes clear that men who hate women are found at every level of society.
