Outlier

A van drives over Finnmarksvidda. The vehicle stops on a deserted stretch. The driver gets out, opens the back door, shifts something around, and gets back in again. Then he drives on and disappears.

A few hours later, the Sami teenager Elle Jannok walks along the same road on the way home after a party. She hears something. In the snow lies a ringing cell phone, and she hesitantly answers. The voice at the other end asks for Sofie, then the connection breaks.

In central Troms, police officers Johan Mathisen and Erik Hansen are called out to a report of an illegally parked van. As they enter the camping cabin in the woods just behind the car, they discover the body of a young woman.

Maja Angell is defending her highly debated doctoral thesis on criminology and artificial intelligence as she hears about the murder case from her old home region in Northern Norway. She defies all advice, leaves the University of London and travels North with a message for the local police: you have the wrong man.

Outlier is a classic crime story about the hunt for what turns out to be a serial killer. A hunt that will force Maja to go back to her hometown that she once left, where she vowed never to return to. Not until she dares to delve into her own most dangerous, repressed memories of childhood - will she be able to stop him. Maja chases her own assailant. It's time for revenge.
