Translated by Caroline Waight

Over the decades since their parents died, siblings Sidsel, Ea and Niels have drifted apart, retreating in order to protect their most vulnerable parts. But single mother Sidsel’s last-minute work trip to London, site of past transgressions, and Ea’s chance visit to a San Francisco clairvoyant – seeking contact with their late mother – force the trio to reckon with their shared history and complicated inheritance.
