PremiseEdit

Detective Tommy Conley travels to Stockholm to advise and investigate a particularly gruesome series of murders.[1] Young, blonde, blue-eyed women are found murdered at regular intervals near water bodies and flower fields. Conley has to work with the Swedish investigator Mikael Eklund.[1] The two hate each other, both fight with their own demons. After initial problems, the investigators investigate a series of murders, which, as initially thought, is not limited to New York and Stockholm, but has much larger dimensions.[1]
