When Elina makes her annual summer pilgrimage to the remote family farm in Lapland, she has three days to catch the pike in a local pond, or she and the love of her life will both die.
This year her task is made even more difficult by a host of deadly supernatural creatures and the homicide detective on her trail.
Can Elina catch the pike and lay to rest the curse that has been hanging over her head ever since a youthful love affair turned sour?
Can Sergeant Janatuinen make it back to civilization in one piece?
And just why is Lapland in summer so weird?
