Hard-nosed hit man Raid is lying low at his farmhouse in northern Finland when the son of a local shopkeeper stumbles onto his property with bloodthirsty Bolivian drug traffickers on his heels. Raid comes to the boy's aid, and arouses the ire of the Bolivian cartel. Further south, Detective Lieutenant Jansson and his colleagues find the bodies of a Bolivian warehouse worker and a Finnish flight attendant in a Helsinki home, along with a closet brimming with stolen goods. In this twisting talo of cops, criminals, and those who blur the lines, Jansson and his team struggle to connect the dots behind the case. Were the killings the work of a jealous lover, the result of a theft racket gone awry, or something else entirely? And how might a shady PI and a decades-old prostitution case be linked to the murders?
