    Viggo Hansen was a man nobody ever noticed, even though he lived in the midst of a close-knit community. His death doesn't hit the headlines, but there is something about the case that catches the attention of William Wisting's journalist daughter, Line, and she decides to write a newspaper article with a different twist for the festive season: the portrait of a completely anonymous and obscure person whose death goes unremarked and unmourned.

    Stavern, 1983. After a brutal robbery, a young policeman named William Wisting is edged off the investigation by more experienced officers, but soon he is on another case that has not even been recognised as murder. Forgotten in a dilapidated barn stands a bullet-riddled old car, and it looks as if the driver did not get out alive. This case will shape William Wisting as a policeman and give him insight that he will carry with him for the rest of his career.

    Together with her one-year-old daughter, Maja, single mother Sofie Lund moves into the house she inherited from her grandfather. Sofie has such painful memories that she has had every trace of the old man removed - every trace but a locked safe that has been bolted to the basement floor. Inside the safe Sofie finds something shocking that will also become crucial evidence in a case that has plagued Inspector William Wisting for a long time. To follow this lead, though, he must cut across important loyalties and undermine confidence in the police force.

    Dimman ligger kusligt tät över Larvik tidigt en kall höstmorgon. Mitt på stadens torg har ett avhugget huvud placerats, spetsat på en påle. Kommissarie William Wisting ställs inför det mest groteska fall han stött på under sin poliskarriär. Det brutalt mördade offret är en mycket ung flicka och hela Norge är skakat av det blodiga dådet. Medierna kräver en snabb lösning. Men de viktiga timmarna efter fyndet passerar utan några ledtrådar om vem flickan är, och pressen blir inte mindre när ännu ett lik hittas, uppdraget ur den djupa älven.

    I den lilla orten Stavern i Norge sköljs en avkapad vänsterfot i en sportsko upp på stranden. Så en till. Och ännu en, tills det inom loppet av en vecka har dykt upp fyra vänsterfötter i sommaridyllen. De fyra fötterna utgör kärnan i vad som tycks vara ett olöst mysterium, där dömda mördare, människor som försvunnit spårlöst, en sammansvetsad "stay behind"-grupp och en mängd oregistrerade vapen alla spelar en roll. William Wisting är van att ta sig an även de svåraste uppdrag med entusiasm och en inre förväntan om vart efterforskningarna ska föra honom.

    William Wisting är en erfaren utredare vid polisen - rättskaffens, sympatisk och samvetsgrann. I Grottmannen kommer döden honom obehagligt nära när det i grannhuset hittas en man som varit död i fyra månader. Liket sitter uttorkat i tv-fåtöljen framför en flimrande skärm, läpparna är tillbakadragna och blottar de svartgula tänderna. Mannen liknar mest en mumie. Det finns inga tecken på våld, man misstänker inget brott. Wistings dotter Line, som är kriminalreporter, blir illa berörd. Hur kan en människa som lever mitt i samhället vara så ensam att ingen saknar honom under så lång tid?
