Grieving from the recent death of his father, the sudden collapse of his career and the arrival of unsurmountable government debt, George English, an American living in Sweden stumbles onto an unlikely situation – a chance for a 50 million Swedish Crown reward for solving the 30-year-old murder of the former prime minister, Olof Palme. Naturally, George begins to imagine that cracking the Palme case could be the answer to all his problems.
Together with his closest friend, a not-so-intrepid journalist who wants nothing to do with the case; a whacky conspiracy theorist; and a former police officer, they follow the case into a web of conspiracy. Keeping his wife and daughter in the dark whilst following the cover-up and inconsistencies in the original investigation, George quickly realizes that with every step he takes toward the truth, the more dangerous the operation becomes.
