Final Curtain - Kjersti Scheen ... Fond of her vodka, divorced and living in Oslo, she supports herself and her punk daughter with routine assignments such as tailing faithless husbands and wives. The tempo picks up when her friend Rakel Winkelmann, the renowned actress, disappears and Rakel's sister engages Moss to look for her without involving the police. She has very little to go on, but a visit to Rakel's cousin brings her into contact with a group of neo-Nazis. Other clues lead to a mountain resort and Rakel's telephone lover. There Moss meets up with truck driver Roland Rud, her modern-day knight in shining armour. Piece by piece she uncovers an intrigue with roots in the theatre as well as the outside world, and becomes a pawn in a fatal game.
