A case for Varg Veum...Bergen, Norway. Young teenage girls, some from very cosseted backgrounds, are being drawn into prostitution, partly for kicks, but also to earn money for drugs and trendy clothes. Matters take a turn for the worse when the local magistrate is discovered in a luxury hotel, clad only in women's lingerie - and most assuredly dead. Private detective Varg ('Wolf') Veum is called in by anxious parents soon after to look for their missing daughter, whose body is found dumped beside the road in an isolated spot. Clues point to the Bergen underworld...will Veum escape with his life this time?
