In the spring of 1990, Mathias Finne turns himself in at a police station in Moscow to confess to a murder he committed in the last days of the Second World War in Borholm, Denmark. In an interview with a police inspector, Finne recounts the dramatic events that took place when he was a ten-year-old boy. He tells the tale of a child caught between Nazi collaboration and the underground resistance. The truth becomes complicated as the investigator turns up surprising evidence from an unlikely source that sheds light on the historical facts. Finne’s confession suddenly becomes a pivotal event in the lives of more than one man.


“…an intriguing first novel by Johansen, a Danish-Canadian journalist living in Labrador. This is a highly atmospheric story…his research is superb and his little window on Nazi-occupied Denmark is excellent.”
