Author: Vidar Sundstøl

It’s winter.  As the story opens, Lance Hansen is staying in a motel close to the Canadian border.  He is hiding from his brother, whom he fears after the hunting expedition described in the previous book.  His family and colleagues think that he has gone off on his first trip to Norway.

After some time he seeks out his ex-father-in-law, Willy Dupree, who introduces him to the way in which the Ojibway people regard and interpret dreams.  Lance now dreams for the first time in many years.  In his dream he meets Swamper Caribou, and the medicine man gives him some information that Lance soon realizes he can use in his quest to find out who killed the Norwegian tourist in The Land of Dreams.

As he attempts to solve the murder, he comes into close contact with his brother’s wayward seventeen-year-old daughter, Chrissy.  Her love for the man who is accused of the murder turns out to be the key to the case.

Through his encounters with Chrissy, Lance is forced to think about his own attitudes toward love.  The two women in his life are his ex-wife and Debbie Ahonen, the great love of his youth.  After finally finding out who killed the Norwegian tourist, the biggest challenge still remains.  Only when Lance once again becomes capable of loving another person will the amateur historian, Lance Hansen, be able to turn his eyes toward the future.
