A powerful government minister emerges as the prime suspect, with the general election only a few weeks away. Fuelled by ambition, hampered by inexperience, Annika finds herself immersed in a steamy underworld of sex clubs, sinister power plays and a media feeding frenzy. This murder case could become Annika's breakthrough story - or the event that seals her doom.
