Twenty years later his mother Julia is still crippled by her grief and her father Gerlof, now in a retirement home receives a package that will make them ask yet again, 'What really happened the day Lens disappeared'? I enjoyed Johan Theorin"s 1st book in the Oland series very much. 2nd book of Theorin's I've read set on the island of Oland, just off the Swedish mainland. Why the low rating? After one of Gerlof's equally antiquated friends is murdered, Gerlof and his friends redouble tA still-grieving mother, Julia, comes home to a remote Swedish island in hopes of finding out what happened there twenty years ago to her little son, Jens, who disappeared in the fog one day and was never found.

Flash forward 20 years, and his mother, Julia, has still not gotten over his disappearance. This book painted a picture of Oland, a Swedish island in the Baltic Sea, that is particularly vivid and as much a character in the story as the human ones.
