    • Synopsis
    • Defence attorney Jonas Bechmann makes his living getting murderers acquitted - until, that is, he himself becomes a murder suspect. After a night out on the town, he ends up in an hotel room with a young girl. The following morning she is lying on the floor, brutally murdered, and all the evidence points to Jonas. To clear his name, he must leave his whole life behind and go on the run.
      But Jonas soon discovers that he is ensnared in a larger game of truth and falsehood, where the line between right and wrong becomes swiftly erased. Only when the trail leads him back to his own father's mysterious death does this hitherto law-abiding defence attorney realise there is only one way out; to become like the person he is hunting..
