Synopsis by Bhob Stewart

Carl Jorgen Kionig directed this Norwegian police thriller, winner of the Norwegian Amanda award for the year's best film. Axel Hellstenius' screenplay is adapted from a novel by Norway's justice minister Anne Holt. Lesbian policewoman Hanne Wilhelmsen (Kjersti Elvik), who has a live-in lover, tools about Oslo on her Harley-Davidson. After a number of women vanish, police find blood but no bodies, and Wilhelmsen begins a search for the suspected serial killer. Holt's crime novels are a popular, successful series, providing the source for a TV miniseries, Blind Goddess, also directed by Kionig with the same principal cast seen in this feature. Shown at the 1998 Haugesund Film Festival.
