Summary
A young prostitute is found murdered at the common in Copenhagen. the woman's body has been preserved and her eyes removed with surgical precision. Not long after, another body is discovered treated in the exact same manner. The press names the spectacular case the Sandman Killing. Detective Lars Winkler is put on the case. With an addiction to classical rock music and the odd line of speed, Lars is struggling to get his life back together, mostly with his sixteen-year-old daughter, Maria, who lives with him in his rundown apartment. His wife has left him for his old friend and former boss. Meanwhile, the atmosphere in the Homicide and Violent Crime Department is tense. A violent serial rapist has also emerged. Despite support from his new young partner, Sanne Bissen, the pressure is getting to Lars. While tracking Copenhagen's most sadistic serial killer to date, his past--which has long been kept secret--is slowly catching up to him..
