En smuk vinterdag forsvinder den unge, fremadstormende folketingspolitiker Merete Lynggaard sporløst. Medierne kaster sig over historien, og overskrifterne gætter på alt fra mord og selvmord til frivillig forsvinden. Politiet sætter straks en storstilet eftersøgning i gang, men uden resultat. Merete Lynggaard er som sunket i jorden.Først da den hårdt prøvede vicekriminalkommissær Carl Mørck sættes i spidsen for politiets nyoprettede afdeling for ´Sager under særlig bevågenhed´, sker der et afgørende skred i efterforskningen. Og snart er Carl Mørck og hans assistent Assad på sporet af en hensynsløs forbryder, som drevet af had har lagt en helt afsindig plan. Spørgsmålet er, om Carl Mørck og Assad kan nå at forpurre den, eller om de selv vil blive ofre for den.Dette er første bog i serien om Afdeling Q og Carl Mørck. Forfatter Jussi Adler-Olsen fik prisen "De Gyldne Laurbær" for 4. bog i serien "Journal 64".
