In the wake of a series of bombings and cyberattacks in Stockholm, the Swedish Secret Service SÄPO is struggling to find the organization responsible for the attack. These are trying times for anyone employed in the most secretive of government jobs. Nobody knows that as well as Carl Hamilton, who has absolved years of Navy SEAL training. Having just returned to his home country, Hamilton is enlisted to rejoin an elite black-ops division of SÄPO. At the same time, he is being identified as a possible suspect by agent Kristin Ek. Haunted by his past and unbeknownst to his superiors, Hamilton is suspected to be a double agent for the CIA. After Hamilton and Kristin engage in a wild goose chase across the world to get to the bottom of the attacks, they soon discover that there are darker forces behind the bombings than the usual suspects. An organization taking advantage of fake news, xenophobia and terrorism in order to turn a profit. It's the new Cold War: As loyalties are put to the test, Hamilton is forced to choose what future is best for his country in an age where multinational business interests are the new ideologies…

Add some stinging satire about self-absorbed adults, stir in stuffing and a season of Chicago Hope boiled down to one hour of hysterical soap opera, and you begin to approach a description of Petter S. Rosenlunds debut piece" - Hans Rossine at Dagbladet.
