It's the coldest winter in memory as ex-convict Peter Boutrup moves to remote, rural Denmark to start a new life.
But when a young woman goes missing on New Year's Eve and Peter discovers the body of Ramses, an old acquaintance from prison, things start to unravel.
Two days after the disappearance the body of a young girl is found in the harbour - she is naked, attached to an anchor and her face has been torn off. Is this the body of the missing woman and is it connected with Ramses' murder? And could Peter's strange new neighbour, Felix, be involved?
Peter Boutrup just wants peace and quiet but he must accept that the truth lies hidden in the past he is trying to forget.
Populated by a cast of characters from the underbelly of Danish society, Three Dog Night is a fast paced thriller that paints a picture of a rarely seen side of Denmark.
