Not given enough time to prepare a seemingly routine assignment, Swedish Secret Service Agent Morgan Haeger makes a costly mistake. The death of his best friend and colleague, Christer Carlberg, crumbles his entire existence. Sleep-deprived from a recurring nightmare, Morgan turns to prescription drugs and alcohol to cope, often getting in trouble with a violent outcome. At his lowest he realizes unless he cleans up his act and, first of all, becomes the father his five-year-old son wants and deserves, he is risking being completely shut out of his life.
Suspended with no pay, an opportunity to straighten out his financial woes is presented to him. Billionaire Friedrich Levin is willing to pay Morgan a substantial amount of money to help him recover a painting stolen from his family by the Nazis during Kristallnacht in November 1938. Presented solid evidence the piece is in existence and in the hands of a wealthy Belarus with strong ties to the Russian mob, Morgan knows the risks of stepping out of the Government-provided protection he normally is used to and go rogue. Given his messy personal situation, the offer is simply too good to resist.
Finishing up the assignment, Morgan finds out he has walked right into a trap. Wounded and left for dead below a hairpin turn in the Austrian Alps, pieces start falling into place. Recovering in a hotel room without any means of transportation, he must find a way to get back to Stockholm to confront the ones responsible and seek revenge. Upon his arrival, he finds the situation is not what he’s expecting.
