Susan Svendsen has a special talent: she has a unique ability to make people confide in her and tell her their innermost secrets. She has exploited that talent, and now has a prison sentence hanging over her head for punching a Bollywood actor in an Indian casino. To make matters worse, her husband is on the run from the mafia, one of her children has been accused of antiquity smuggling and the other has run off with a monk. But Susan gets an offer from a former government official - an offer to use her power one more time and have all her charges dropped so she can return to Denmark. Together with her family, she must track down the last surviving members of a secret think tank of young talents founded in the 1970s, the so-called Future Committee, and find out what was written in the committee's final report. But the report is apparently covering up information of great value, and some powerful people are determined it is not revealed.

Recensioner i media

"A well-tuned and clever femi-thriller." * Politiken * "Peter Hoeg is back. And better. And with a novel that is both a thriller, a social critique, and existentially provoking - and on top of that, wonderful and funny." * Dagbladenes Bureau * "The main character bares a clear resemblance to a certain Miss Smilla. It is not often that Hoeg writes a new novel, but this one has clearly been worth the long wait." * Kulturnaut * "Peter Hoeg is back with a new thriller about quantum physics and the fact that the elite is neglecting the rest of society...the novel is a well-placed kick into high society's modern powdered wigs." * Weekendavisen *
