After a local man is murdered and Eva Lotta, a witness to the identity of the suspected killer, Kalle knows it’s best to let the proper authorities deal with this case. But with the police at a dead end, Eva Lotta in danger and a ruthless criminal at large, Kalle knows he’s the only one capable of solving the crime before the murderer strikes again. After all, he reasons, you’ve got to live dangerously sometimes.
