As the dust settles from the explosive finale of the first series, Aksel (Nicolai Cleve Broch) has the answer he so desperately sought. Finally, his search for justice appears to be over and his reconciliation within the local community can begin. But Aksels hopes are short-lived. As Eva (Lena Endre) and William (Ingar Helge Gimle) close ranks and deny the truth, a new struggle begins for Aksel. Convinced that Eva is covering for William, he asks himself a question: what secret could be so big that a mother is willing to shield the murderer of her own daughter As the impenetrable fog of lies and deceit that has enveloped a decades-old murder begins to clear, Aksel finds himself heading toward an inevitable showdown with his nemesis, Eva. Only then he may finally know the truth, and his own fate.
