Summary
Bad things happen in Mossmarken... and now Nathalie has come home, they seem to be happening again. A young woman returns to the place she grew up, the village on the edge of the mire. Something seems to be driving her there - perhaps a last chance to confront the terrible tragedy of her childhood. But her arrival coincides with an attack on a young man she has feelings for, a grave is dug in the mire which vanishes a day later, and then the bodies start surfacing. Is the mire calling out for sacrifices, or is it an all-too human evil?
