Jörgen’s world is crumbling.  Forced into early retirement and harassed by his ex-wife, the only part of his life which made sense – raising his beloved daughter, Tirza – is disrupted when she disappears on holiday in Namibia.

After weeks of terrified uncertainty, Jörgen goes searching for her, but the heat, his drinking and bad memories combine to unhinge him. His only ally is a child prostitute called Kaisa. Together they journey into the wilderness on Tirza’s trail and discover her fate.
