On the run from his past and with a new identity, the cop Asgeir moves with his daughter to an idyllic small town in western Norway. A conflict at the local refugee center leads Asgeir to encounter the mysterious Ragna, who has a dire secret too. She is Furia, a far-right writer spreading dark and sinister opinions to a global audience. A tragic murder puts both Asgeir and Ragna in danger, revealing forces in Norway and Europe far more dangerous than a small-town murder.

They get entangled in a web of radical right-wing groups and followers – sending them on a journey from the fjords of Norway to a Berlin preparing for Germany’s election, as politicians push polarization and violent extremists try to radicalize, aiming to change Europe forever.
