På det lille stedet Høtten ble det for seks måneder siden begått et seksualdrap på 13 år gamle Katarina. Nå er det skjedd et nytt dødsfall - en av de to brødrene som mistenkes for det uoppklarte drapet blir funnet druknet. Dermed intensiveres etterforskningen. Forsterkninger kommer til stedet i form av den garvede Kripos-etterforskeren Nicholas Ramm (Reidar Sørensen). Etter hvert som Ramm går det lille samfunnet nærmere i sømmene, sniker det seg en uro inn under hans blå vinterfrakk. Fra å møte Høtten, med sin lekne urbane tilnærming, blir han drevet inn i et spill han etter hvert mister kontrollen over. Tvunget inn i et skjebnefelleskap mesannheten som et sjokk i det vinterbleke Høtten. Og den er langt verre enn Ramm hadde forestilt seg. Written by
The film follows the traditional storyline: big city detective Nicholas Ramm in a small town, trying to solve a horrendous crime, dealing with the townspeople who want to take care of the problem themselves. Vigilante justice is explored in detail and it is obvious what side the filmmaker, Karin Julsrud, is on. It was easy for me to side with Julsrud's outrage. I was a bit worried with the red herrings coming true, making the film a little too convenient but thankfully they didn't. When the twist comes, it is unexpected but (and this is a big but), I think Julsrud paints herself in a corner. Ramm's actions at this point are a little out of character and seem to be more of a way to clean things up. In this day of extensive media coverage of awful crimes, emotions are often manipulated and I thank this movie for making me more aware of how easy this is but as a film, I can't say it was a success.
