In 1987, Nete Hermansen plans revenge on those who abused her in her youth, including Curt Wad, a charismatic surgeon who was part of a movement to sterilize wayward girls in 1950s Denmark. More than 20 years later, Detective Carl Mørck is presented with the case of a brothel owner named Rita, who went missing in the ’80s. As he and his assistants sift through the disappearances, they get closer and closer to Curt, who is more determined than ever to see the vision of his youth take hold.
