Had it not been for the last Tsar of Russia, Nicholas II, Winston Churchill and Vladimir Putin, Detective Evert Backstrom of the Stockholm Police Department would never have found himself investigating the murder at the heart of this novel. For this is a story about the final outcome of the actions of those four men over a period of more than a hundred years. Four men who never met, who lived their lives in different worlds, and where the oldest was assassinated forty years before the youngest was born. And as so often before, regardless of the company or context he finds himself in, it is Backstrom that will put an end to the story.
