A teenage girl is assaulted and raped on a midsummer's eve fifteen years ago. Cut to present, and a man is killed in a hit and run. He has no identification on him, he is not reported missing nor wanted by the police. Simultaneously a priest and his wife are found dead in an apparent suicide. Fredrika Bergman and her colleagues are assigned to the seemingly unconnected cases. Skillfully crafted and highly suspenseful, Silenced is a gripping thriller, where the demise of one family is mirrored in the general failure of human rights - and where the casualties of one tragedy abuse the victims of another.
