Norway, 1945: On the run from invading Nazis, his family murdered, sixteen-year-old Erik decides to join the Milorg - Norway's Resistance movement. Spirited away into the mountains, he is groomed to become a spy at a secret facility where the Nazis are attempting to breed a race of Aryan superbeings. But when he comes face to face with the man who killed his family, revenge becomes the only mission possible.
Norway, present day: on the eve of the general election, Henrik Bonde, a far-right politician, is poised to seize power. Across Europe, other hard-line reactionaries are ready to follow suit. But the plan depends on last minute funding from a dangerous source: a trove of Nazi gold aboard a sunken German ship. As Bonde hunts for treasure long forgotten, he comes face to face with shadows from Norway's past. Before the gold can be recovered, there will be more bodies in the Oslofjord, drifting down to join the wrecks ...
