All she left behind was her husband Martin and a mysterious string of numbers scribbled on a piece of paper. Every year on October 9th Chief Inspector William Wisting reviews the files of the case he was never able to solve. He stares at the code he was never able to crack and visits the husband he was never able to help. But now Martin Haugen is missing too. As Wisting prepares to investigate another missing persons case, he's visited by a detective from Oslo. Adrian Stiller is convinced Martin's involved in another disappearance of a young woman and asks Wisting to close the net around Martin. Is Wisting playing cat and mouse with a dangerous killer or a grief-stricken husband who can't lay the past to rest?
