Anne and her daughter Thea are relocated to the remote village of Ramnes. They are living with a new identity under code 6, the strictest security code under the protection of the police.

Anne is filled with constant anxiety fearing that her ex-husband will find them and kill them. Her life is thrown into disarray when her daughter Thea comes home in shock, and her new husband is found critically beaten at the neighbouring property. At the same time, her linens now smell of her ex-husbands aftershave. Whilst Anne is certain he has managed to locate them, Ole Vik and Cecilie Hopen will soon reveal a sombrely more complex story. Monster is the eight book in the series about Ole Vik and Cecilie Hopen.
