It is autumn 1981 when inconceivable horror comes to Blackeberg. The body of a teenager is found, emptied of blood, the murder rumored to be part of a ritual killing. Twelve-year-old Oskar is personally hoping that revenge has come at long last---revenge for the bullying he endures at school, day after day. But the murder is not the most important thing on his mind. A new girl has moved in next door--- There is something wrong with her, though, something odd. And she only comes out at night. . .
