The women turn out to be Russians who are trafficked across the border with Russia. But the investigation takes a dangerous turn when a German virologist, Thomas Lorenz, working in Helsinki, discovers a deadly virus in the dying woman's bloodstream.



Thomas travels to Lapland to work with Nina and the pair find themselves in an unusual investigation that will test their endurance as well as their willingness to operate outside the law.
