Leif Hjernø, a psychologist of Argentine and Danish descent and the son of Danish immigrants, and his secretary, Olga Tretkova, share a common passion for exploring the mysteries of the subconscious mind through their membership in IASD (The International Association for the Study of Dreams). When Olga is tasked with writing a biography of Leif and his institute, she turns to his renowned dream archive for inspiration. As they collaborate on the project, an unspoken attraction between them grows.


However, their peaceful work environment is shattered when a man is found murdered in one of the dream cabins in the institutes cellar. The victim is none other than the person Leif despises the most, and the evidence points to Leif as the prime suspect. With his fingerprints found on the murder weapon, one of his own kitchen knives, Leif’s reputation and career are at risk. Olga must use her expertise to help clear his name, but the deeper they delve, the more they uncover secrets that threaten to tear them apart. 

The author, Hans Ole Østergård, studied comparative literature, French and Spanish, at the university of Copenhagen in his youth, and later anthropology at the University of Aarhus, and Japanese, in his free time. He spent most of his life teaching Spanish, with main emphasis on modern Latinamerican literature. Together with Argentine colleague Alejandro Losada, he founded AELSAL – The European Association for the Study of Latinamerican Literature and Culture, which involved travelling around Éurope and the spanish-speaking world. Hans has written seven books: A collection of Poetry, five volumes of adventures and Sci-fi, and lately, The Dream Institute, a sort of fictive biography.
