On the beach in Hjerson's hometown, a man donning a chicken costume has been brutally beaten and then suddenly disappears. Hjerson and Klara follow tracks to a location that brings back distant memories for Hjerson.
An unpublished novel inspires a copycat murder at a restaurant. Only five people, including the author, have read the work- so it must be an inside job. Or is it? The author contacts Hjerson and Klara to crack the case.
