It's the coldest winter in memory as ex-convict Peter Boutrup moves to remote rural Denmark to start a new life.
Peter Boutrup just wants peace and quiet in his new post-prison life. But when a young woman goes missing on New Year's Eve and Peter discovers the body of Ramses, an old acquaintance from prison, things start to unravel. He must start to accept that the truth lies hidden in the past he is trying so desperately to forget.
Two days after the disappearance, a body is found in the harbour, naked, attached to an anchor and with its face torn off. Is this the body of the missing woman? Is it connected with Ramses' murder? And could Peter's strange new neighbour, Felix, be involved?
Populated by a cast of characters from the underbelly of Danish society, THREE DOG NIGHT is a fast-paced thriller that paints a picture of a rarely seen side of Denmark.
