No One is As Safe In Danger

Ingen er så trygg i fare

One early morning private investigator Varg Veum is arrested by the police and thrown into a security cell. They have found electronic traces on his computer that link him to a large Internet community that shares and distributes hard child porn.
How was this material planted in his computer? And why?
From his prison cell Veum has to sift through everything he has done the past three years, three years where his grief over the loss of his great love has led him into a self-destructive downward spiral. His plight turns into a race against time. He faces two great challenges: He has to get out of jail. And he has to find out who it is who is trying to destroy him.
Veum is about to take on his hardest and most personal case ever.
