Weitere Madchen werden vermisst. Auf der Suche nach dem Tater bittet Kommissar Patrik Hedstrom seine Frau, Schriftstellerin Erica Falck, um Hilfe. Fur ihr nachstes Buch interviewt sie im Gefangnis regelmaig eine Frau, die 1975 ihren Mann totete, einen ehemaligen Lowenbandiger, der mit einem Zirkus nach Fjallbacka gekommen war.

Patrik erhofft sich Hinweise auf die Psyche von Menschen, die in der Lage sind, Kindern so etwas anzutun. Doch je langer Erica mit der Verurteilten spricht, um so deutlicher wird, dass die Dinge damals anders gewesen sein mussen. Erica verfolgt der Gedanke, bei ihr irgendetwas ubersehen zu haben.
